How long, how long will the river run dry?
'Cause I'm so busy living I forgot to be alive
And I've lost count of the beat of Your heart
Come on, come on, won't You wake me up?
Wake me up, wake me up, wake me up, yeah

'Cause when You sound
You bring to life
Even my darkest of nights
Wake me up to shine, oh

Yeah, I've come home like a prodigal son
If home's where the heart is that is in the hands of God
And that is just where my heart belongs
Turn on the light, come on wake me up
Wake me up, wake me up, wake me up, yeah

'Cause when You sound
You bring to life
Even my darkest of nights
You wake me up to shine, oh

Sleep will last from the dead
Sing Your songs instead
Right up to the end
Come on wake up

Sing out Your songs of life
In Your darkest nights
It will be alright
Come on wake up, wake up

You gotta wake me up
Wake me up, up
You gotta wake me up
Wake me up
You gotta wake me up
Wake, wake me up
You gotta wake me up
Wake, wake me up
You gotta wake me up
Wake, wake me up
You gotta wake me up
Wake, wake me up
You gotta wake me up
Wake, wake me up
You gotta wake me up

You shine
You bring to life
Even my darkest of nights
You wake me up to shine
