LUCINDA WILLIAMS lyrics - Awakening

LUCINDA WILLIAMS
"Awakening"

In the awakening, in the awakening
I will shoulder my troubles and
Harness my ride
In the awakening, in the awakening
I'll roll nothin' but doubles,
Sevens and nines

In the awakening, in the awakening
I will lick my wounds, I will kiss the sky
In the awakening, in the awakening
I will kick the shoulds, I will not ask why

In the awakening, in the awakening
I will pray for nothing,
I will stay up 'til the end
In the awakening, in the awakening
I will say what I want to,
I will not make amends

In the awakening, in the awakening
I will honor the mistaken,
I will honor the truth
In the awakening, in the awakening
I will honor the forsaken,
I will not mourn my youth

In the awakening, in the awakening
I will not mourn my losses,
I will not mourn the dead
In the awakening, in the awakening
I will have no bosses,
I will not bow my head

In the awakening, in the awakening
I will want for nothing, I will give you a gift
In the awakening, in the awakening
I will always love you,
I will give you my kiss
