lyrics

I remember when I had a calendar
Tellin' me where to be if I wasn't sure
But after a while I started to see
That my life was running on repeat

So I took my schedule and I threw it out the door
But now I couldn't tell you what my life would have in store
See I'm just an empty slate with some energy to dream
And I'm feeling as stable as a pebble in a stream, yeah…

Wake up, wake up
Goes the alarm clock
Get up, get up
It's a brand new day
Put on, Put on
Your clothes and your makeup
And enjoy your stay
At the Routine Way…
The Routine Way…

Time is flying and you don't know what you've seen
Pots of coffee with expired magazines
Desks piled high with their in's and out's
I just can't believe that's what life's about

See I'm sure you've got a family
If you don't you probably will
And if you find a lover
You'll find the time is still
And if you get a puppy dog
He'll always be your friend
But if you fall into a pattern
All of this depends…

Wake up, wake up
Goes the alarm clock
Get up, get up
It's a brand new day
Put on, Put on
Your clothes and your makeup
And enjoy your stay
At the Routine Way…
The Routine Way…

Now I urge you to take a break
And read yourself a book
Or go into the art museum
And have yourself a look
Take your lady or your gent
On a walk through the park
And stay to watch the sunset
Until it's dark
Have a potluck dinner with your family
Or a group of friends over for Monopoly ®
And when you've done all of this
You'll finally understand
That love isn't able to be
Counted on your hand, yeah…

Wake up, wake up
Goes the alarm clock
Get up, get up
It's a brand new day
Put on, Put on
Your clothes and your makeup
And thank you for your stay
At the Routine Way…
The Routine Way
It's brand new day
The Routine Way, yeah...
