Yellowcard - Awakening Lyrics

Bottoms up tonight I drink to you and I
'Cause with the morning comes the rest of my life
And with this empty glass I will break the past
'Cause with the morning I can open my eyes
I want this to be my awakening

I give this one to you an anthem full of truth
I tell you now an epic tail of what you put me through
And even though you don't deserve one of your own
A melody a song about the life that you let go
I can't believe that I still care enough to write

Bottoms up tonight I drink to you and I
'Cause with the morning comes the rest of my life
And with this empty glass I will break the past
'Cause with the morning I can open my eyes
I want this to be my awakening

Yes I miss you still and probably always will
I'm living with a busted heart that I will have until
I find the strength I know it's somewhere in my bones
To pull the curtain up again and get on with this show
At least you know that I care enough to write

Bottoms up tonight I drink to you and I
'Cause with the morning comes the rest of my life
And with this empty glass I will break the past
'Cause with the morning I can open my eyes
And maybe I will see a different destiny
Like knowing you at all was only a bad dream
I want this to be my awakening

No rest for the wicked they say
Forgive me if I try to change
No rest for the wicked they say
Forgive me if I try to change

Bottoms up tonight I drink to you and I
'Cause with the morning comes the rest of my life
And with this empty glass I will break the past
'Cause with the morning I can open my eyes
And maybe I will see a different destiny
Like knowing you at all was only a bad dream
I want this to be my awakening
