Story Behind the Song

This song is for so many of my friends who have had to endure the sadness of watching a loved one battle illness?but mostly it is for my dad, who so beautifully demonstrated the knowledge of the peace that passes all understanding. It is often in the dark

Lyrics

Wide Awake
Copyright  Ali Matthews 2000

I can see the one I love, slowly start to slip away
And still somehow he finds the courage
To bless the gift of each new day
So, I will hold a candle - I will watch and pray
And I swear I?m going to live this moment?wide awake

I want to give away my heart, if only just to watch it break
To feel the warmth of every touch
To know the pain of every ache
And find the strength to hold on to every choice I make
I know I?ve got to live this moment?wide awake

Feel the blood running through my veins
Taste the tears running down my face
I?ve got to believe? I believe God doesn?t make mistakes
I am wide awake

I don?t want to close my eyes
And miss the chance to see you smile
I won?t lie down and sleep if we can walk just one more mile
I will not let the darkness steal my faith away
So I know I?ve got to live this moment?wide awake

Take some love from every breath.
If I could squeeze a little hope when there is nothing left
Until all these dreams and battles are laid to rest
Could be a famine or a feast
Could be an angel or a beast
I will not be afraid?I?m going to stay
Wide awake
