Song Description

just take a listen! :)

Story Behind the Song

there is SO much "story" behind this song that it would take me a rather lengthy amount of room to share what each metaphor or symbolic lyric is "code" for.... BUT, a quick example would be...."i naively drank the poison"....which is speaking about when i was bizarrely and unknowingly drugged with a dangerous amount of cocaine while eating a butterscotch sundae at a really busy fast food restaurant full of families! still to this day, we don't know how or why...i just happened to be the random recipient somehow.... so, when i penned this song, i had been through some rather extremely traumatic life events...there were some dark moments that left me wondering if i would ever see sunlight again...BUT I DID.

Lyrics

AWAKENING

i naively drank the poison
i believed the lies
i was left brokenhearted
i became paralyzed
i could talk about all the sad things
i could sit around and feel real sorry for myself
i choose not to be a victim
instead consider me a survivor
this could be my finest hour

CHORUS
somebody once told me
coming out of the dark's a bright experience
before you know it
you're laughing more and life makes sense
somebody once told me
if you can ride out the storm
the sun will come again
i've been holding my breath
sitting on the edge of my seat
waiting on this welcomed awakening

i've been afraid to feel
you know, it's easier to be numb
God knows i've been trying to heal
'cause i believe in freedom
i've been embracing revival
'cause i'm too young to feel this tired
i've been trying to reckon
with my clay hands and feet
i recognize my deep need

(CHORUS)

BRIDGE
maybe God's more concerned
with growing us up
than the pains of cutting teeth
and the struggles of crawling

(CHORUS)
