All through this long and sleepless night,
I hear my neighbors talking, "She don't love him."
(She don't love him.)
Saying that out of my life into another's arms
You'll soon be walking.

Somebody shake me, wake me when it's over.
(When it's over)
Somebody tell me that I'm dreaming
And wake me when it's over. (When it's over)

They say our love ain't what it used to be
And everyone knows but me.
I close my eyes for not wanting to hear,
But the words are loud and clear.

Through these walls so thin,
I hear my neighbors when they say "she don't love him."
(She don't love him.)
They say my heart's in danger,
'Cause you're leaving me for the love of a stranger.

Somebody shake me.
Come on and wake me somebody when it's over. (When it's over)
Somebody tell me that I'm dreaming
And wake me when it's over. (When it's over)

Girl, you're what my heart desires.
My whole world you inspire.
I can't bear to be losing you,
'Cause I've loved you my whole life through.

Restlessly, I pace the floor
Listening to my neighbors criticize.
What a fool am I not to realize
You don't want me by your side.

As the tears stream down my face,
I can't believe I've been replaced.
If I've ever, ever dreamed before,
Somebody tell me I'm dreaming now.

I said shake me, wake me somebody when it's over.
(When it's over)
Somebody tell me that I'm dreaming
And wake me when it's over. (When it's over)
I said shake me, wake me somebody when it's over.
(When it's over)
