This is how I play 'Wake Up'. It's a song that sounds great whether played with one guitar or two,
and can be played completely acoustic, if you like. 
Play this tab in standard drop D for the live version, or relative to a Capo on 2nd to sound like the album. 
This sounds right to my ear, but please provide feedback. Happy jamming!

[Verse 1 & 2:]

Intro x5;
I’m not sober all the time,
You bring me down at least you try
Until we see this eye to eye,
I don’t want you

I must be running out of luck,
’Cause you’re just not drunk enough to f***

Then, verse part 2:
