"Woke Up in America" as written by and Matt Maher Chris Tomlin....
I was born on a rock in the middle of the ocean
Where the wind's so rough it can carry you to London
It's a new found land with an old soul reaching
For the light of day

My parents gave me a life full of dreams
Yeah they gave me a heart to endure most anything
But everyone gets a broken pair of wings
And if you try to fly you'll fail
But a voice said, "Lift up your head"
And my heart burst out of my chest

I woke up in America for the love of God
I woke up in America for something bigger than myself
More than fireworks and fanfare
More than a star-spangled banner
You're still beautiful America

Yeah it's late in the night and I look in the mirror
Count the lines on my face and wonder how they got there
Oh but every one's a story of how grace appeared
And carried me through the day
And the voice said, "This land ain't dead"
You still got better days up ahead

I woke up in America for the love of God
I woke up in America for something bigger than myself
More than fireworks and fanfare
More than a star-spangled banner
You're still beautiful America

I've seen the horizon ablaze in Arizona
Shoreline shoutin' over California
Moonlight dancin' over the Dakotas
It breaks your heart, it's so beautiful
Lady liberty, she leaves the light on
From the west side all the way to Long Island
Carolina Coast to the Rocky Mountains
The sun is shining over me

I woke up in America for the love of God
I woke up in America
For something bigger than myself
More than wealth or depression
More than a red or blue nation
Here in our hells and our heaven

You're still beautiful America
You're beautiful America
You're beautiful America
