with nothing and no one to blame

and we’re away, we’re away…
we’re away, we’re away…

our home is the light shining through the curtain
pulling in to pull it open
and your arms length is the open window
this is what i know

im awake, im awake, im awake
im awake, im awake, im awake
open my eyes to the brighter side
let the sky define my size
im awake, im awake, im awake
