Magic In Tunes: 06/22/2015 – Awakenings

June 21st marked the first International Yoga Day. Have you done Yoga that day? I know I did. :) One of the song that plays in the Yoga class at the gym I go to is Awakenings by Sarah Mclachlan. She sang it for her 2010 album Laws of Illusion and Lyrics were penned by herself.

Lyrics in English:

When We First Met The Well Was Dry
A Long Dark Winter Passed Us By
With Shooting Stars And Hopeful Hearts Our Worlds Collide
And So We Rushed To Fill Each Other In

Quick To Feed Our Hungry Hopes
A Feast Of Our Affections We Were Born Anew
With Open Eyes We Tried To Make It Work
And For A While The Magic Took
But Cracks Began To Show As Soon As Things Got Hard

Like Paper Walls Our Feelings Tore
We Threw Our Backs Against The Door
Unwilling To Bear Witness To The Other Side

Oh, The Games We Play To Hide The Tangled Dread Inside
The Fear That We Are Going Nowhere Fast
So We Point The Finger Out, The Anger Gets So Loud
It Drowns Out All The Sorrow, At Least Until Tomorrow...What Then?

I Took A Good Hard Look At How I Loved
Years I Squandered Falling Fast
For Any Boy Who'd Have Me Was So Insecure
I'd Lie Awake Alone At Night
Full Of Loathing, Compromised
And Wondering How The Hell Did I End Up Like This

Oh, The Tears Of Rage I Cried, When Nowhere Could I Find
An Answer That Made Any Kind Of Sense To Me
I Point The Finger Out, The Anger Gets So Loud
It Drowns Out All The Sorrow, At Least Until Tomorrow...What Then?

Oh I Wanna Learn, I Wanna Know
Will Our History Crush Us Or Can We Let It Go?
I'm Not The Girl I Was But What Have I Become?
I'm Not So Willing Anymore To Bend
Still Pleasing And Conceding
But I'm Not Gonna Lose Myself Again
