Track Name: Awaken to Life
In-Chorus
=====
Awaken to life,
Awaken to life, this moment,
Awaken to life,
I'm askin',
-----
What's it all for?
What's the top goal?
Life itself is so intoxicating!
=====

Verse 1
=====
Cool that, we all can do this,
Headin' out, far from the shore,
Like on a cruise ship,
People bring bags that they packed, but it may be time to,
-----
Leave the fear behind,
Free and clear the mind,
Worries dropped dead, dead for a long time.
=====

Verse 2
=====
Challenges, but never so bad,
That we can't take a sip of the now,
It's so clear, when
The mind is fresh, like air after raining,
-----
First the word is yes,
Easy take a breath,
See the sky, it appears so spacious,
=====

=====
Awaken to life,
Awaken to life, this moment,
Awaken to life,
I'm askin',
-----
What's it all for?
What's the top goal?
Life itself is now
=====

Out-Chorus
=====
Awaken to life,
Awaken to life, this moment,
Awaken to life,
I'm askin',
-----
What's it all for?
What's the top goal?
Life itself is so intoxicating!
=====

=====
Awaken to life,
Awaken to life, this moment,
Awaken to life,
I'm askin',
-----
What's it all for?
What's the top goal?
Life itself is now.
=====
