Daybreak I'm half awake Today is all there is (I'll be) Out the door, but not before I've kissed the wife and kids I've whistled in the dark I've known the broken heart I've seen the Red Sea part (and now) This sunlight just might Turn strangers into friends Surprise for sore eyes Another place I've never been
Might feel the old Earth shake Could miss that lucky break But I can hardly wait To get
Up in the Morning A new world is forming Behind these tired eyes I'm here and I'm breathing Feel my heart beating Lucky to be alive
We'll see, could be The check is in the mail (Wake up, life's too short for you to stay in bed) (or I'm) On the slide that ends inside The belly of the whale (Get up, brush the cobwebs from your sleepy head)
I've know the answered prayer I've thought no one was there It seem to clear the air, when I get
Up in the morning. . . I don't care if I see rain or the blue sky I only know I've survived Surprise Yeah. . .
