That crossed my mind when I was trying to make sense of the lyrics, and the "Julie wake up" part even made me picture her in a coma, but the "walk in the sun, and the wind and the rain" seemed sort of positive, like that she wants and is looking forward to a better life, greener pastures. Put perhaps that could just be him reminding her that at one point, she had dreams and ambitions, and that she shouldn't give up now. It really does work both ways.

Yeah, that's how I imagined it. In the first verse, "I'm getting nowhere / Hope to get to someplace soon" could be a reference to some kind of afterlife where she won't be suffering any more. Then in the second verse, he remembers how positive she once was about getting better, maybe referring to a previous letter she'd sent him ("Said you were gonna get there someday / Gonna walk in the sun..."). And he contrasts it with what she's saying in this latest one ("Now you fall down / You're falling down"), and begs her to find some of that former courage instead of letting go.

Come to think of it, some of those lyrics rather remind me of Wake Up Dead Man:
"Julie wake up / Julie tell the story..."
"Tell me, tell me the story / The one about eternity, and the way it's all gonna be / Wake up, wake up dead man..."
