I recorded the vocal parts to this song late one night in my home studio. I didn't want to wake anyone up, so I sang very quietly but very close to the microphone. Touching. I wanted an intimate sound. What I ended up with reminded me of one of my favourite artists – Laurie Anderson.

Lyrics

Awake Asleep
by Wilfred Kozub

Crunch time Crunch time

I was awake – I was asleep
I was awake – I was asleep
Awake – asleep

Good to be alive, good to be alive, good to be alive
Good to be alive

I was awake – I was asleep
Awake – asleep
I was awake – I was asleep
Awake

I gotta catch up (do it, do it, do it, do it)

I was awake – I was asleep
I was awake – asleep
I was awake – I was asleep
I was awake

(musical interlude)

July has passed
September, September, September
(do it, do it, do it)

I was awake – I was asleep
I was awake – I was asleep
I was awake – I was asleep
Awake . . . asleep

Good to be alive, good to be alive, good to be alive
Good to be alive

Winter is here, yeah winter is here
I lie awake and I wait for . . . for Spring (do it, do it)

I was awake – I was asleep
I was awake – I was asleep
I was awake – I was asleep
Asleep . . . sleep . . . sleep . . . sleep
Alright now, wake up
