Verse 1

Stuck inside a house I built

Locked the doors and closed the shutters

With no strength left to cry for help

I hid in bed under the covers

 

Verse 2

Stuck inside a shade of blue

Sadness was my only comfort

I didn’t know that only You

Could fill my world with all the colors

 

Chorus

This is my awakening

That while my heart was fast asleep

You were resurrecting me

 

I thought that I would never breathe

I thought the pain would never leave

But You’re redeeming everything

 

Verse 3

Now there’s a dawn at every turn

You speak to me in new beginnings

A ray of sun to heal the hurt

The music stops but You’re still singing

 

Chorus 2

This is my awakening

I’m never going back to sleep

How could I after what I’ve seen

 

This is my awakening

There’s color now in everything

Color now in everything
