Awakening
by Switchfoot



Yeah!

Face down with the LA curbside endings
And the ones in zeros.
Downtown was a perfect place to hide.
The first star that I saw last night was a headlight
Of a man-made sky, but
Man-made never made our dreams collide,
Collide.

[Chorus]
Here we are now with the falling sky and the rain,
We're awakening
Here we are now with our desperate youth and the pain,
We're awakening
Maybe it's called ambition, you've been talking in your sleep
About a dream, we're awakening

Last week saw me living for nothing but deadlines,
With my dead beat sky but, this town doesn't look the same tonight
These dreams started singing to me out of nowhere
And in all my life I
Don't know that I've ever felt so alive,
Alive

[Repeat Chorus]

I want to wake up kicking and screaming
I want to wake up kicking and screaming
I want know that my heart's still beating
It's beating,
I'm bleeding
I want to wake up kicking and screaming (I wanna wake up)
I want to live like I know what I'm leaving
I want to know that my heart's still beating,
It's beating... it's beating... it's beating...
I'm bleeding

Here we are now with the falling sky and the rain,
We're awakening
Here we are now with our desperate youth and the pain,
We're awakening
Maybe it's called ambition, you've been talk-talking in your sleep
About a dream, we're awakening
Dream, we're awakening
Yeah!
