Lyrics – Dying Awake

Cloé Beaudoin / Cloé Beaudoin (SOCAN/BMI)
There’s this world I can’t define
With all its darkness and its light
Burning still, through my skin
Only by looking into these eyes,
I know, I’m barely alive
Gunshots are all I’m hearing
As more and more are falling
Please…

Let us die awake
In pure silence
Bring us peace
Till forgiveness comes
Dying awake
Let the light burst through our souls
Changing all this red to white
Till the bullets bleed no lies

There’s a world you can’t deprive
Of all its madness and its cries
Can you see the rage in their eyes?
Fuelled up by Satan’s lullaby
They’re feeding the fire with bloody lies
Devouring their beautiful hearts
To feel less empty inside
The flames are rising up,
Consuming sanity
Revenge is all I’m hearing
As holy tears are falling…please

Let us die awake
In pure silence
Bring us peace
Till forgiveness comes
Dying awake
Let the light burst through our souls
Changing all this red to white
Till the bullets bleed no lies

The bullets are burning still through our skin
The bullets are burning still through our skin
Dear God…awake us from our past
And heal us from ourselves
‘Cause I’m scared of falling asleep
in the devil’s arms tonight
No I’m not scared to face the light
Just open my eyes
To you…
