When I Woke

lyrics

When I woke this morning
The dawning light was grey
As the night was turning
Into a bright new day

And though I didn’t know then
What this day would bring
I knew it would be new when
I heard the first bird sing

Because she sang...
Yesterday’s done
New day’s begun
Here comes the sun
Wake up, once again the world is young

I walk by the ocean
With my feet met by the tide
And I stare at the horizon
Where the water meets the sky
And it’s amazing what I see there
It’s the future mystery
Who knows what might be there
Endless possibilities

And so I sing...
Yesterday’s done
New day’s begun
Here comes the sun
Wake up, once again the world is young

Younger than yesterday
While under the waves, I fade away
Younger than yesterday
As I watch those waves
Wash those days away
