“We Are Awake” Lyrics

Did not know the language
But I understood the talk
Felt like I was standing in a wind

Started to unravel
The unmitigated walk
And from the door marked “Exit”, they came in

Was I awake? (We are awake)
Could not stop the sights before my eyes
Was I awake? (We are awake)
Unending joy that did not cease to rise
(Ah-ah-ah)
(Ooh, ah-ah-ah)
(Ooh, ah-ah-ah)

Did not seem the answer
To speak in such a rush
So I sat there and waited for the move

Something came and kissed me
And it caused my mind to blush
I touched the open hand of selfless love

I was awake (We are awake)
There could be no mistaking for a dream
I was awake (We are awake)
Nothing else establishes the theme
(Ah-ah-ah)
(Ooh, ah-ah-ah)
(Ooh, ah-ah-ah)

[break]

(Ah-ah-ah)
(Ooh, ah-ah-ah)
(Ooh, ah-ah-ah)

It came and went but did not pass
There was too much to see
Movin’ through the middle of my life

With this gentle power
It has knocked me to my knees
To watch the golden arrow as she flies

I am awake (We are awake)
Only mortal senses tie my wings
I am awake (We are awake)
Transfixed, I hear the mountains as they sing
(Ah-ah-ah)
(Ooh, ah-ah-ah)
(Ooh, ah-ah-ah)

I am awake (We are awake)
Only mortal senses tie my wings
I am awake (We are awake)
Transfixed, I hear the mountains as they sing
