Wake Up Every Morning

from by Amy Gordon



A song about being hopeful about finding love.


I wake up every morning
with a fresh hope in my heart.
Might of cried myself to sleep last night
but today’s a brand new start.

I keep looking out that door
as if it’s my only lifeline.
Because this could be the moment
that I can finally call you mine.

It could be now.
It could be you,
that I’ve been waiting for
dreaming of.

I go about my existence,
with my eyes all scanning
on the off-chance
you do the same thing.

It’ll play out like a movie.
Suddenly, our eyes meet.
and from that moment onward,
the rest is history.

Because it was then.
It was you.
That I’d been waiting for,
dreaming of.


And sometimes life will take you
and sometimes life will change you.
Knock you off your feet,
before you even know what hit you.
Life can amaze you
and life is bound to change you.
whether or not you’re ready to.


So I’ll go on smiling
as if I’m born to believe.
I don’t care what others tell me.
I know it sounds naïve.

So I’ll wake up tomorrow,
with this fresh hope in my heart
I cried myself to sleep last night,
but today’s a brand new start.
