Verse 1
Bb	       F      Gm
Stuck inside a house I built
Eb 			F	   Cm
  Locked the doors and closed the shutters
 Bb			 F	  Gm
With no strength left to cry for help
Eb	        F	Cm	
  I hid in bed under the covers

Verse 2
Bb	       F	 Gm
Stuck inside a shade of blue
Eb 	           F   Cm
  Sadness was my only comfort
Bb		   F	 Gm
I didn’t know that only You
Eb 		    	  F	     Cm
  Could fill my world with all the colors

This is my awakening
      F			Eb
That while my heart was fast asleep
 F	      Gm	   Bb    Eb
You were resurrecting me
I thought that I would never breathe
    F			  Eb
I thought the pain would never leave
     F	              Gm	  Bb	   Eb
But You’re redeeming everything

Verse 3
Bb	               F     Gm
Now there’s a dawn at every turn
Eb 	        	F   Cm
   You speak to me in new beginnings
Bb	         F	  Gm
A ray of sun to heal the hurt
Eb   		        F	   Cm
   The music stops but You’re still singing

Chorus 1

Chorus 2
This is my awakening
I’m never going back to sleep
		  Gm		    Eb
How could I after what I’ve seen
This is my awakening
There’s color now in everything
		Bb/D	  Eb	Bb
Color now in everything
