Awakening  Switchfoot

        [E]Downtown was the perfect place[B] to hide.             [C#m]            [A]
        [E]First star that I saw la[B]st night was a headlight in t[C#m]he manmade [A]sky
        [E]But Manmade never made our s[B]tars [C#m]collide, [A]collide

Chorus: E B C#m A
Here we are now with the falling sky and the rain, We’re awakening.
        [E]Here we are now with the despera[B]te youth and pai[C#m]n, We’re[A] awakening.
        [E]Maybe it’s called am[B]bition, you’ve been talk[C#m]ing [A]in your sleep,
        [C#m]About a dream, we’re awa[A]kening.

Bridge 1 same as intro but repeat 1x.

Verse 2: (same as 1)
Last week saw me living for nothing but deadlines, in my deadbeat sky but,
This town doesn’t look the same tonight.
These dreams started singing to me out of nowhere, and in all mylife I,
don't know if i've ever felt so alive, alive.

Chorus: E B C#m A
Here we are now with the falling sky and the rain, We’re awakening.
        [E]Here we are now with the despera[B]te youth and pai[C#m]n, We’re[A] awakening.
        [E]Maybe it’s called am[B]bition, you’ve been talk[C#m]ing [A]in your sleep,
        [C#m]About a dream, we’re awa[A]kening.

Bridge 2: B D A
       I[C#m]wanna wake up kicking[B] and screaming, I wanna wak[A]e up kicking and screaming
        [C#m]I wanna heart that I k[B]now is beating, is beating[A], I’m bleeding
        [C#m]I wanna wake up kicki[B]ng and screaming, I wanna l[A]ive like I know what I'm leaving
        [C#m]I wanna heart that I k[B]now is beating, I [C#m]wanna heart that I know is[B] beating
        [C#m] I wanna heart that I know[B] is beating
        [A] It's beating,   It's beating,    It's beating     I'm bleeding.

Chorus: E B C#m A
Here we are now with the falling sky and the rain, We’re awakening.
        [E]Here we are now with the despera[B]te youth and pai[C#m]n, We’re[A] awakening.
        [E]Maybe it’s called am[B]bition, you’ve been talk[C#m]ing [A]in your sleep,
        [C#m]About a dream, we’re awa[A]kening.
