Children laugh when they want to laugh
Or tears come and the crying starts
Then why’s it so hard to express the streams of sadness inside
When grief comes I try to hide.

Waking Up and I can feel again
Waking up and I can feel
Having the courage to feel my
pains … my joys
Living the strength to become
I am the faith and I am
Living the strength to become
Whole

Sometimes I think I’ve been hiding so long I can’t even
Find myself.
The mind has lots of circles to keep me lost.
But the key, the map, the heart speaks remember
The child releasing in the moment

Waking Up and I can feel again
Waking up and I can feel
Having the courage to feel my
pains … my joys
Living the strength to become
I am the faith and I am
Living the strength to become
Whole

What is healing if not feeling
Emotion is a motion like a river flowin’
Moving me out of this eddy of mind
I want to be alive like children or a river flowin’,

Waking Up and I can feel again
Waking up and I can feel
Having the courage to feel my
pains … my joys
Living the strength to become
I am the faith and I am
Living the strength to become
Whole
