"Waking up to find your love's not real" in “Right Here, Right Now”

  • In Fatboy Slim’s Right Here, Right Now, the lyrics consist of repetitions of two lines:

    • "Right here, right now"
    • "Waking up to find your love’s not real" ¹

    The first line comes from the movie Strange Days, but where is the second line from?

    I thought it might be another line from Strange Days, but I couldn’t find it there. The Wikipedia article doesn’t say something about this line. WhoSampled doesn’t seem to answer it (it’s not from James Gang’s Ashes, the Rain and I).

    ¹ I’m trusting various lyrics sites here, as I find this line hard to hear.

    I don't think it's "Waking up to find your love's not real", it sounds like a chop up of a vocal phrase that's saying something totally different. Happy to be proved wrong!

    I also don't think it says that (and am very curious to find out exactly what it says).

    It sounds like "I'm not the guy that looked like him" to me.
