​Man

This song is by Relient K and appears on the album Air for Free (2016).

I spent the last six years like Hoffman in a swimming pool
And I've been lost at sea inside a house off Driftwood Avenue and I
I made a mess out of the life that laid ahead of me, oh
The clock is ticking faster now
I'm too old to be growing up

Goodbye to heartache that's the only southern part of me
I'll pack some boxes in the basement then move down the street and I
I'll leave the pirate ships to kids who don't know anything, oh
I'll be every bit the person we both already know I'll be

Wake up, wake up
It's time to be a man
Wake up, wake up
(Wake up, wake up)
Wake up, wake up
It's time to be a man
Wake up, wake up
(Wake up, wake up)
Wave goodbye, as I outgrow the shadow of Peter Pan
It's time to be a man

Don't close your eyes
Don't say goodnight
Don't take your life
Wake up, wake up

I had another nightmare, baby won't you comfort me
And I've been lost at sea inside a house off Beachwood Avenue and I
I made a mess out of the life that laid ahead of me, oh
The clock is ticking faster now
The clock is ticking faster now

Wake up, wake up
It's time to be a man
Wake up, wake up
(Don't close your eyes, don't say goodnight)
Wake up, wake up
It's time to be a man
(Don't disappear, don't not be here)
Wake up, wake up
Wave goodbye, as I outgrow the shadow of Peter Pan
It's time to be a man

Don't close your eyes
Don't say goodnight
Don't disappear
Don't not be here
Wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up

Wake up, wake up
It's time to be a man
(Don't close your eyes)
Wake up, wake up
(Don't say goodnight)
Wake up, wake up
It's time to be a man
(Don't disappear)
Wake up, wake up
Wave goodbye, as I outgrow the shadow of Peter Pan
I'll be every bit the person we both already know I can
It's time to be a man

I used to see all of the world in positivity
And I've been lost at sea inside a house off Driftwood Avenue and I
I made a mess out of the life that laid ahead of me, oh
The clock is ticking faster now
The clock is ticking faster now
