Awake (Lyrics)

AWAKE

I guess I asked for this, and you made it so.
It came from the cosmic bliss, but where did it go?
Open your clenching fist, with nothing to show.
Grasping at emptiness, and holding it close.

So tell me that a new day will begin.
Or I won’t want to fall asleep again.
But I believe the morning when I rise,
Will be renewed with wonder and surprise,
So I’ll shut my eyes.

Forging forgiveness, as compassion unfolds.
Sink into a stillness, when the motion gets old.
Struggling to confess, a truth to withhold.
Couldn’t have told you this, but I want you to know.

So tell me that a new day will begin.
Or I won’t want to fall asleep again.
And even with the chances that I take,
Yesterday will not be a mistake,
So I will wake.

Wandering openness, and fearless of mind.
Close down your hopelessness, and leave it behind.
Shed what I’ll never miss, receive what is mine.
Won’t wait around for this, ‘cause it’s here all the time.

Time and space will warp and it will bend.
Obscuring the beginning from the end.
But I believe a new day will begin,
So I’m about to fall asleep again,
And awaken within.
