Sheeran, Ed - Wake Me Up Lyrics




I should ink my skin with your name
And take my passport out again
And just replace it
See I could do without a tan
On my left hand,
Where my fourth finger meets my knuckle
And I should run you a hot bath
And fill it up with bubbles

'Cause maybe you're lovable
And maybe you're my snowflake
When your eyes turn from green to gray
In the winter I'll hold you in a cold place
And you should never cut your hair
'Cause I love the way you flick it off your shoulder

And you will never know
Just how beautiful you are to me
But maybe I'm just in love
When you wake me up

And would you ever feel guilty if you did the same to me?
Could you make me a cup of tea to open my eyes in the right way?
And I know you love Shrek
'Cause we've watched it 12 times
But maybe you're hoping for a fairy tale too
And if your DVD breaks today
You should've got a VCR
Because I've never owned a Blu-ray, true say

And now I've always been shit at computer games
And your brother always beats me
And if I lost, I'd go across and chuck all the controllers at the TV
And then you'd laugh at me
And be asking me
If I'm gonna be home next week
And then you'd lie with me 'til I fall asleep
And flutter eye lash on my cheek between the sheets

And you will never know
Just how beautiful you are to me
But maybe I'm just in love
When you wake me up

And I think you hate the smell of smoke
You always try get me to stop
But you drink as much as me
And I get drunk a lot
So I'll take you to the beach
And walk along the sand
And I'll make you a heart pendant
With a pebble held in my hand
And I'll carve it like a necklace
So the heart falls where your chest is
And now a piece of me is a piece of the beach
And it falls just where it needs to be
And rests peacefully
So you just need to breathe
To feel my heart against yours now, against yours now

'Cause maybe I'm just in love when you wake me up
Or maybe I'm just in love when you wake me up
Maybe I fell in love when you woke me up

Sheeran, Ed Wake Me Up Comments
  1. Rangan Chakraborty

    One of the songs of his debut album (+)... incredible!!!

  2. Dwayne Duncan

    I will love you forever JH X

  3. EVELYN BYAKUTAAGA

    Ed Sheeran is tooo good

  4. Mina Bulaya

    this song always reminds me that love isn't the in big things. we see in social media, people buying each other massive engagement rings, expensive cars, and going on exotic trips. all that is fine, but will that person care for you when you're sick? love is in the little things. I never knew that until I saw my dad almost die and watching my mom take care of hiim....man that's love

  5. Krimoy

    underrated, needs more love :((

  6. Hey It’s Charlie

    underrated song

  7. Abi Robson

    my bf sent me this and what the fuck I’m in love🥺🥺

  8. Angela Pearson

    Heard this one for the first time today n as usual I am in love w it js

  9. The Postman

    Ed Sheeran is love, Ed Sheeran is life

  10. Shawn H.

    @3:06
    you can feel so much emotion

  11. LunarX

    Is this song just Ed Sheeran trolling, knowing that he could say anything while playing a random chord progression and still make millions?

  12. that one lonely eagle

    This was no lyric video, the words turned into a movie of what he's saying and someone decided to cut onions!

  13. jAZ

    my special someone sent me this, and I genuinely feel like it's about us, coincidentally my eyes change from a green to a gray (and sometimes a hint of blue)

  14. Sophie snow

    I want this to be my song. I got greenish gray eyes and my middle name is snow. And im called snowflak sometimes...i want to play this at my wedding

  15. Shirley Hartman

    Who’s still here in 2019? 💖💖🥰🥰

  16. Madison Castner

    Dear god,
    Please let me have love like this. Thank you:)

  17. saul Espinoza

    aun no me canso de escucharla :' )

  18. Laura Andersen

    Love this song..
    I listened to this song just right after my grandmother, my "mother", passed away. The vibe of the song, his soft way to sing, the piano.. everything about it just fitted perfectly to my broken heart, and I listened to it every day in a long period of time after her passing. Years have went by and I forgot about the song till I stumbled across it last week -- and then all the memories came back to me.

    The lyrics of the song doesn't fit on my grandmother, obviously except the line "You will never know how beautiful you are to me", and therefore it still touches my heart and make it hurt. Miss her more and more as everyday passes by.


    You were the best person in the world. Think about you every day. As my tattoo says "you will forever be my always". Thank you for everything <3

  19. Lily Mann

    The only song that can be emotional while still mentioning shrek, musical genius here.

  20. Earl Bunce

    I wish you would let me wake you up. wish you'd wake me up I need you Beth please help me

  21. Athali N.

    this song will be on my wedding or im suing my future husband

  22. Debra Baker

    What the fuck happened to his writing

  23. Savage panda

    Who is watching in 2019 like if you are

  24. Ackah-Tanoe Eshun

    2019 and you still jamming to this song like this post

  25. van gohoe

    This is so raw, fucking beautiful

  26. D.V.

    Best song ever

  27. Alex - Unie !!!

    no joke this kid who liked me sent me this song and i was laughing so hard

  28. Cintia Soares Queiroz

    And maybe you're hoping for a fairytale too 💙💙

  29. Vedo

    I'm so sorry

  30. Daniel Parraga

  32. OWN OWN

    I should ink my skin
    With your name
    And take my passport out again
    And just replace it
    See I could do without a tan
    On my left hand, where my fourth finger meets my knuckle
    And I should run you a hot bath
    And fill it up with bubbles
    'Cause maybe you're lovable
    And maybe you're my snowflake
    And your eyes turn from green to gray and in the winter I'll
    Hold you in a cold place
    And you should never cut your hair
    'Cause I love the way you flick it off your shoulder
    And you will never know just how beautiful you are to me
    But maybe I'm just in love when you wake me up
    And would you ever feel guilty
    If you did the same to me
    Would you make me a cup of tea
    To open my eyes in the right way
    And I know you love Shrek
    'Cause we've watched it twelve times
    But maybe you're hoping for a fairy tale too
    And if your DVD breaks, today
    You shoulda got a VCR
    'Cause I never owned a Blu-Ray
    True say
    And now I've always been s*** at computer games and your brother always beats me
    And if I lost, I go all cross
    And chuck all the controllers at the TV
    And then you'd laugh at me
    And be asking me
    If I'm gonna be home next week
    And then you'd lie with me till I fall asleep
    And flutter eyelash on my cheek between the sheets
    And you will never know just how beautiful you are to me
    But maybe I'm just in love when you wake me up
    I think you hate the smell of smoke
    You always tryna get me to stop
    But you drink as much as me
    And I get drunk a lot
    So I'll take you to the beach
    And walk along the sand And I'll
    Make you a heart pendant
    With a pebble held in my hand
    And I'll carve it like a necklace
    So the heart falls where your chest is
    And now a piece of me is a piece of the beach and it falls just where it needs to be

    Against yours now
    'Cause maybe I'm just in love when you wake me up
    Or maybe I'm just in love when you wake me up
    Maybe I fell in love when you woke me up

    ed is a poet, a dreamer, a magician. his lyrics are art by themselves; his voice makes them even better, the music makes them ethereal. beautiful…

  39. Andy Hair

  55. Jacbob

  56. dude

    I don't get "i should take my passport out again and just replace it"... someone cares to explain pleaaaase ? :)

    Robin

    ma-native-agonie.tumblr.com I think he want say that he should go away from her and for never be found, so he replace his passport and replace it

  57. Josefin

    the most beautiful lyric is "and i'll make you a heart pendant with the pebble held in my hand. and i'll carve it like a necklace, so the heart falls where your chest is, and now a piece of me is a piece of the beach and it falls just where it needs to be and rests peacefully, and you just need to breathe to feel my heart against yours now."

  58. ZEEK Fire

    I like how this is a more ed sheeran version of little things (even though he wrote that too XD)

  59. Fierce Tiger

    My guy lovES Ed Sheeran, him n his songs are his favourite things n throughout the progression of our relationship it's gone from "you're almost as perfect as ed Sheeran" (which was a lot at the time) n then it went to "yourevas good as ed, I've never said that about anyone" n just recently he showed me a video of him n said "see that guy right there? You're better than he is. I love you so much". I love my man beyond words. He's so sweet n honestly hope I marry him someday. Thank you to ed for writing such perfect songs so me n him can listen to them n think of each other x

  79. Dean G

    How can you see into my eyes like open doors?
    Leading you down, into my core
    Where I've become so numb, without a soul
    My spirit's sleeping somewhere cold
    Until you find it there, and lead it, back, home
    Wake me up inside
    Wake me up inside
    Call my name and save me from the dark
    Bid my blood to run
    Before I come undone
    Save me from the nothing I've become
    Now that I know what I'm without
    You can't just leave me
    Breathe into me and make me real
    Bring me to life
    Wake me up inside
    Wake me up inside
    Call my name and save me from the dark
    Bid my blood to run
    Before I come undone
    Save me from the nothing I've become
    Bring me to life
    Bring me to life
    Frozen inside, without your touch
    Without your love, darling
    Only you are my life
    Among the dead
    I've been sleeping a thousand years it seems
    Got to open my eyes to everything
    Don't let me die here
    Bring, me, to, life
    Wake me up inside
    Wake me up inside
    Call my name and save me from the dark
    Bid my blood to run
    Before I come undone
    Save me from the nothing I've become
    Bring me to life
    Bring me to life
    Bring me to life
