i may not keep the garden growing
so many seasons bought and sewn
it’ll always be there in the morning
that’s what I’m told

so many lanes and trains and airplanes
so many miles i call home
they’ll always be there in the morning
that’s what I’m told

and i’m away, i’m away …

we’ve got it good in all the good ways
no real reason to complain
still we brave so many dark days
with nothing and no one to blame

and we’re away, we’re away…
we’re away, we’re away…

our home is the light shining through the curtain
pulling in to pull it open
and your arms length is the open window
this is what i know

im awake, im awake, im awake
im awake, im awake, im awake
open my eyes to the brighter side
let the sky define my size
im awake, im awake, im awake
