The Levellers - Calling Out Lyrics


Awoke from bed without a warning
Stumble round the room in an early morning haze
I can hear the neighbours talking
Heading down the stairs to earn the weekly wage

When did my life become so boring?
And was it overnight I turned into a slave?
I’ve got a headache it’s appalling
I try to make some tea but the cupboard’s bare again

Did I wake from a dream?
I can’t keep myself from falling
The air seems so clear I can smell the rain
There’s a light above me
I can hear somebody calling
It’s only me calling out your name

Hit the road the traffic’s crawling
Curse the day the first vehicle was made
Near the town the rain is pouring
Another accident, another soul in pain

Did I wake from a dream?
I can’t keep myself from falling
The air seems so clear I can smell the rain
There’s a light above me
I can hear somebody calling
It’s only me calling out your name

While on the radio they’re talking
How the government says it deserves a raise
Meanwhile more hospitals are closing
And now the fire brigade must take a cut in pay

Did I wake from a dream?
I can’t keep myself from falling
The air seems so clear I can smell the rain
There’s a light above me
I can hear somebody calling
It’s only me calling out your name
