"Awaken Early" is a song sketch by Rivers Cuomo. The demo was added to the digital compilation Alone XII: The White Year on November 27, 2020.



Cuomo mentioned "Awaken Early" on an episode of the SongExploder podcast, released on April 18, 2016, explaining that he lifted the chord progression from the song "Walk Away Renée" by The Left Banke, and that "Awaken Early" was used as a partial anagram of "Walk Away Renée". The melody would later become the chorus for the song "Summer Elaine and Drunk Dori".


I don't wanna go, oh oh, oh oh
I don't wanna know, oh oh, oh oh
Oh, oh oh, oh oh
Oh, oh oh, oh oh
