With eyes so blind
How did I see a single thing?
I missed the scenery
Change in front of me

And as for these hands
Well they've got a lot to answer for
They built me a house of sand
On someone else's land

Deep down I knew I was lost
But I kept my fingers crossed
As if that would somehow rescue me

Chorus:
How did I sleep?
How did I sleep?
How did I sleep without You?
Without You

Tired all the time
But there is no rest for the wicked
Under the covers I pretended not to cry

And there You were:
Magnified by the tears
Reaching Your hands to me
Waiting patiently

I never dared to dream
Of the morning my eyes have seen
Awake for the first time: rise and shine

Chorus x3

How did I ever try?
How did I sleep?

Rise and Shine; awake for the first time
(Repeat)
