"Waking Up" as written by Matthew Charles Rollings, Benjamin Ward Morton and Kenny Greenberg....
Twenty years are chasing me
And twenty years are facing me down
Still there's no real explanation
No formal invitation that I've found
All this time I heard you talking
I never noticed how much I love the sound
Now I know it's getting late
But I feel better just having you around

I'm waking up
It's breaking me down
It shakes me up
When you come around

I didn't know it would be like this
But I guess my pre-life crisis has arrived
I drag my heart behind me
Until your voice reminds me I'm alive
Now I'm standing in the morning sun
Wondering what I've done to get this far
As I step out from the shadows
I can see just who you are

I'm waking up
It's breaking me down
It shakes me up
When you come around
When you come around

Suddenly you were older, bolder
So much more to think about
This song has always been inside me
Just took me twenty years to get it out

I'm waking up
It's breaking me down
It shakes me up
When you come around
