All these changes I’ve been wanting
greet my morning, and I’m thinking
Am I a blessed one?
How did I get this far?
Could it be that I'm a changed man
and that I’m finally breaking free?
Free from all of my illusions
that I would never be enough
Could it be that I'm just fine
the way I've always been?
Could it be that I'm alright
despite the flaws that I’ve seen and lived?

I’ve been hiding for a lifetime
Never wanted to be found,
but somehow I dared to be
more than I thought I was

The life I lived in silence was my padded prison cell
I would never find a way back as far as I could tell
It was all so still
I was all so still

I remember how I stumbled towards
a tranquil fate of living by the will of others
I waited for - I waited for something much more
I waited for something much more
I waited for - I waited for something much more

Don’t live afraid
Don’t live ashamed
Don’t live in wait
The road is yours to walk

    My InterpretationI see this is as a story of someone that actually finally comes to a realisation ... they are a worthy person, they are their own self and that they are 'strong'.

    Very much a message of discover yourself and be yourself!

    I think the title reflects upon when the initial realisation probably came upon them, and or could be poetic regarding "dawn" as the beginning of life (or that the realisation "dawned" upon them).
