"Awakening" as written by Ryan William Key, Sean Michael Wellman-mackin, Ryan Michael Mendez and Longineu Warren Parsons....
Bottoms up tonight I drink to you and I
'Cause with the morning comes the rest of my life
And with this empty glass I will break the past
'Cause with the morning I can open my eyes
I want this to be my awakening

I give this one to you an anthem full of truth
I tell you now an epic tail of what you put me through
And even though you don't deserve one of your own
A melody a song about the life that you let go
I can't believe that I still care enough to write

Bottoms up tonight I drink to you and I
'Cause with the morning comes the rest of my life
And with this empty glass I will break the past
'Cause with the morning I can open my eyes
I want this to be my awakening

Yes I miss you still and probably always will
I'm living with a busted heart that I will have until
I find the strength I know it's somewhere in my bones
To pull the curtain up again and get on with this show
At least you know that I care enough to write

Bottoms up tonight I drink to you and I
'Cause with the morning comes the rest of my life
And with this empty glass I will break the past
'Cause with the morning I can open my eyes
And maybe I will see a different destiny
Like knowing you at all was only a bad dream
I want this to be my awakening

No rest for the wicked they say
Forgive me if I try to change
No rest for the wicked they say
Forgive me if I try to change

Bottoms up tonight I drink to you and I
'Cause with the morning comes the rest of my life
And with this empty glass I will break the past
'Cause with the morning I can open my eyes
And maybe I will see a different destiny
Like knowing you at all was only a bad dream
I want this to be my awakening

    Song MeaningThis song is about having the courage to move on with your life. Whether you had a horrible experience, a relationship that ended badly, or whatever the case may be, this song is about knowing you can wake up in the morning to a new day and start over. Even though you may always remember who or what hurt you in the past, you will heal over time. That "Awakening" is when you realize that you can't change what happened, but you can move on from it and "pull the curtain up again and get on with this show."
