Woke up in ribbons,
Head like a landmine,
Love is waning now.

Got on the 145 home,
Dragging tired bones,
Love is waning now.

But the light I see won't abandon me if I treat it with care,
And the courage I know will protect my soul from the darkness
In the night.

So raise me from slumber,
Time has my number,
Life is waiting now.

There's a robin in your jail cell,
Throw a candle down the dark well,
Life is waiting now.

And the light I see won't abandon me if I treat it with care.
So let the bells ring out their tune
On this cold December afternoon,
Welcome everybody to a brand new day.

Life has its troubles,
Everybody knows,
And sometimes it gets so hard,
But I've promised myself I won't let it go.

So if the daylight tears you apart,
If it casts a shadow over your heart,
If you feel like just giving up,
Hold on.

And tonight when you're sleeping,
Lost in your dreaming,
May hope find its way inside.
