Wake Up
Arcade Fire Lyrics


Somethin' filled up
My heart with nothin'
Someone told me not to cry

Now that I'm older
My heart's colder
And I can see that it's a lie

Children, wake up
Hold your mistake up
Before they turn the summer into dust

If the children don't grow up
Our bodies get bigger but our hearts get torn up
We're just a million little god's causin' rain storms
Turnin' every good thing to rust
I guess we'll just have to adjust

With my lightnin' bolts a-glowin
I can see where I am goin' to be
When the reaper he reaches and touches my hand

With my lightnin' bolts a-glowin'
I can see where I am goin'
With my lightnin' bolts a-glowin'
I can see where I am go, goin'

something filled up
my heart with nothing
and someone
told me not to cry

but now that
im older
my hearts
colder
and I can
see that it's a lie

chorus

children
wake up
hold your
mistake up
before they
turn the summer into dust

if the children
dont grow up
our body's get big our
hearts get torn up

were just a million little gods causing rain storm! turning every thing good to rust

I guess well just have to adjust
chorus

with my lightning bolts a glowing
I can see where I am going to be the reaper he reaches and touches my hand
chorus
with my lightning bolts a glowing I can see where I am going
with my lightning bolts a glowing I can see where I am go going

Masterpiece. Hearing the crowd sing the chorus to Wake Up in person is a religious experience.

Ryan McAllister

Yes Im sure! cant wait to finally see them in the fall

Deirdre Kiely

Saw them in Boston in 2018. Amazing concert. One flaw - they OPENED with Wake Up. This should only be used as a closing song. Still, it was one of the best concerts I've ever seen. Absolutely euphoric.

religious ---> spiritual here, fixed that for you. Religion is spiritual in nature, but spirituality doesn't have to be religious.

Andy

Yep can confirm. Saw them back in Utah about 10 years ago and the crowd lit up to the chorus. Will never forget that

I was looking for this song for 12 years, I've heard it once on the radio and never again. Today it's a beautiful day because I finally find it. I'm crying. This song feels like getting back at home to me.

Josh Williams

I’m happy you finally found it!

Eriruarito Caradepito

Yo have to heard this song + Rebellion.

15 years ago, Arcade Fire created a chorus without a single word. Yet, it still holds mountains (beyond mountains HAHA) of power and intensity. Fans across the world can sing this chorus and unite, without having to sing a single word. Arcade Fire holds a talent that is extremely unique and beautiful. Freakin powerful.

Drew Young

Hate to be "that guy", but technically "oh" is a word. That's all the chorus is. But the sentiment's the same.
