Awakening Lyrics

Face down with the L.A. curbside endings
In ones and zeros
Downtown was the 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

Here we are now with the falling sky and the rain
We're awakening
Here we are now with the desperate youth and 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 all my life I don't know
That I've ever felt so alive, alive

Here we are now with the falling sky and the rain
We're awakening
Here we are now with the desperate youth and pain
We're awakening

Maybe it's called ambition
You've been talking in your sleep about a dream
We're awakening

I wanna wake up kicking and screaming
I wanna wake up kicking and screaming
I wanna know that my heart's still beating
It's beating, I'm bleeding

I wanna wake up kicking and screaming
I wanna live like I know what I'm leaving
I wanna 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 the desperate youth and pain
We're awakening

Maybe it's called ambition
But you've been talk, talking in your sleep about a dream
We're awakening
Dream, we're awakening

This is exactly how I feel after I've been going all out for God and praising Him with all I am: awake and new. I believe my heart only started beating properly once I gave everything to my Saviour.

After I went thru the experience of falling for my best friend I found this song and it described exactly how I felt when he said it would never work out. I felt so numb for weeks.

I love this song so much! When I was still with my boyfriend it was our song, but I still love it even though we had a bad break. It's that good of a song that it lived through the wreckage.
