Verse 1

I had a little chat with your room-mate,

And this flirting we engaged in of late?

Well, now I'm bringing it to a dead end.

Cause he told me all about your girlfriend.

Verse 2

And it makes me so sad to think of her.

While you've come to the city not too far,

She's stayed back in your home town, junior year.

And you're chasing down too many girls here.

Chorus

I hope she wakes up soon and walks out the door.

Yeah, I've been in love with a player before.

And I can be played only once-

The next time I just play along.

But not if you have a girl, no,

And that's why I wrote you this song

Verse 3

To let you know that you make me feel sick.

It feels like you gave my wounds a salt lick.

Once more I was gonna make a mistake,

Ignore my instincts, put my heart at stake.

Verse 4

I owe him big time, he saved me, thank God!

You're not even worth this cool guitar chord.

You're not worth the time she spends on the phone,

Talking to you every night, all alone.

Chorus

I hope she wakes up soon and walks out the door.

Yeah, I've been in love with a player before.

And I can be played only once-

The next time I just play along.

But not if you have a girl, no,

And that's why I wrote you this song

Bridge

To let you know how I hope she wakes up soon,

And realizes that the heart break's a boon.

I've been in her shoes,

I've nurtured my bruise,

I've lost my faith in love,

And I know it's what makes us wake up,

I hope she wakes up soon.

Chorus

I hope she wakes up soon and walks out the door.

Yeah, I've been in love with a player before.

And I can be played only once-

The next time I just play along.

But not if you have a girl, no,

And that's why I wrote you this song
