LYRICS

Waiting for something that's already gone
You long for that prize that's already been won
You sit by the phone but it's already rung
While you were sleeping
You open the window and look up the street
Where's all the people that promised to meet you ?
Sorry to tell you but they already knocked your door
While you were sleeping
You throw on some shoes and you head to the station
You get to the office to show off your creation
You find out they've already picked out the best of the bunch
While you were sleeping

You could have gone so far if you were more awake
It's just a bitter pill your gonna have to take
You could have done so much
If you weren't sleeping
If you'd have only seen a little more daylight
You could have brought those genius thoughts to life
You could have had it all
If you weren't sleeping

You set your alarm and you hatch out a plan
You put all your faith on a second chance
Hoping to make them all understand
Why you were sleeping
You turn up early and you plead your case
But all they see are the lines on your face
And you can't believe how many years you wasted sleeping

You could have gone so far if you were more awake
It's just a bitter pill your gonna have to take
You could have done so much
If you weren't sleeping
If you'd have only seen a little more daylight
You could have brought those genius thoughts to life
You could have had it all
If you weren't sleeping

Wakey-wakey 'cause you're gonna miss that boat again
Wakey-wakey 'cause you're gonna miss that boat again
Wakey-wakey 'cause you're gonna miss that boat again
If you're sleeping
Wakey-wakey 'cause you're gonna miss that boat again
Wakey-wakey 'cause you're gonna miss that boat again
Wakey-wakey 'cause you're gonna miss that boat again
If you're sleeping

You could go so far now that you're more awake
You've had enough of the pills you wanna taste the cake
You can do so much
Now you're not sleep

More about The Turtle Project

`The Turtle Project` started out as exactly that, a project, a songwriting project that was born from years of being a musician in many bands, doing countless gigs, naturally gathering experience and inspiration until, one day, I stumbled upon the fact that I could actually put those experiences and many others into words. The composing aspect grew from that into what it is today ...
