Original video
Wake up in the morning, my hands cold in fear
And midsummer New York my heart shakes in terror
My heart, my hands, my legs, my mind
Everything I touch is shaking, shaking, shaking, shaking
Shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, ooh

Wake up in the morning, my bed's wet in sweat
And midsummer New York, scream in the mirror
And the door, and the chairs, and the floor, and the ceiling
Everything you see is aching, shaking, shaking, shaking
Shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, ooh

And you shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
Shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
Shake, shake, shake, oo

Wake up in the morning, my minds dried up in pain
Midsummer new yorks waiting for the rain
The window, the trees, the park, the sun
The whole world is shaking, is shaking, shaking
Shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, ooh

Shake, ooh shake, ooh shake
Shake, ooh shake, shake
Aching, aching, aching, aching, aching, aching
Oh, its aching, aching, aching, oh, aching, aching
Aching, aching, oh its aching, aching, oh oh

Shaking, shaking
Shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
Shake, shake, oh shake, shake, shake, shake
Shake, shake, shake

Shake, shake
Shake, shake, shake, shake

Ooh oh, shake, shake, shake, shake
Oh, oh, oh, oh, aching, oh, oh, aching, aching, aching
Shake, shake, shaking, shaking, shaking, shaking
Shaking, ooh oh, shaking, oh, shaking
Oh, oh, shaking, shaking, shaking, shaking
Oh, oh, shaking, shake, shake, shake, shake
Shake, shake, shake
Shake

Oh, oh, oh, shake, shake.
