Waking up

I made a bad mistake
leaving my heart with you
You hadn't been too careful-
you broke it right in two

I remember you saying
that love is only a game
I wish I'd never believed you
but you set my heart aflame

Now I could see that
you're only a bad dream
I was only sitting upon a cloud

but now
I am waking up
waking up!
to a fresh start in the morning
I know I'm brave enough
brave enough!
To survive another day

How much do I wish
I could go back to sleep
but I must stand strong right now
There's sunlight far as I could see

I thought I was drowning
after I cried myself to rest
I could only hear your voice yelling at me
and my own fragile protest

Now I could see that
you're only a bad dream
from when I was sitting upon a cloud

but now
I am waking up
waking up!
to a fresh start in the morning
I know I'm brave enough
brave enough!
to survive another day without you

I will forget you
and the throbbing scar
you gave me
You're only a bad dream

but now
I am waking up
waking up!
to a fresh start in the morning
I know I'm brave enough
brave enough!

I'm waking up
