Lyrics for Falling Asleep At The Wheel by Holly Humberstone:

Verse 1
Oh, you never smoked this much before we met
Light up, light up another cigarette
I can tell you're drinking only to forget
Don't know how I got you in such a mess

Pre-Chorus
How am I supposed to be your ray of light, your ray of light?
I get dark sometimes, does it pass you by?
I should be your ray of light, your ray of light

Chorus
But I'm falling, falling asleep at the wheel
Guess I forgot how to feel
Just for a second, you're talking
But I'm just pretending you have my attention
I'm falling, falling asleep at the wheel
I made you think it was real
If you think we're strong enough
Come on and wake me up

Verse 2
You never looked this tense before we met
Back up, back when we were so innocent
All this emotion that we're buried in
Tied up, fired up on this adrenaline

Pre-Chorus
How am I supposed to be your ray of light, your ray of light?
Not a cloud in sight, what a perfect night
I should be your ray of light, your ray of light
But that's not me

Chorus
And I'm falling, falling asleep at the wheel
Guess I forgot how to feel
Just for a second, you're talking
But I'm just pretending you have my attention
I'm falling, falling asleep at the wheel
I made you think it was real
If you think we're strong enough
Come on and wake me up, wake me up
Come on and wake me up, come on and wake me up
If you think we're strong enough, wake me up

Chorus
And I'm falling, falling asleep at the wheel
Guess I forgot how to feel
Just for a second, you're talking
But I'm just pretending you have my attention
I'm falling, falling asleep at the wheel
I made you think it was real
If you think we're strong enough
Come on and wake me up, wake me up
Wake me up, wake me up
If you think we're strong enough
Come on and wake me up, wake me up, wake me up

Song Facts

“Falling Asleep At The Wheel” is a song about how someone’s feelings in a relationship can build up and destroy the relationship and/or the person themselves. It talks about insecurities and worries with a partner, trying to convince themselves that this is okay and that they can still make it work, but sometimes they’re more likely to break themselves down first. It’s a heartbreaking mantra that will make you second-guess yourself. I know I re-assessed my relationship after listening to it.
