Amanda Cook - Awakening Lyrics




Stuck inside a house I built
Locked the doors and closed the shutters
With no strength left to cry for help
I hid in bed under the covers

Stuck inside a shade of blue
Sadness was my only comfort
I didn't know that only You
Could fill my world with all the colors

This is my awakening
That while my heart was fast asleep
You were resurrecting me

I thought that I would never breathe
I thought the pain would never leave
But You're redeeming everything

Now there's a dawn at every turn
You speak to me in new beginnings
A ray of sun to heal the hurt
The music stops but You're still singing

This is my awakening
That while my heart was fast asleep
You were resurrecting me

I thought that I would never breathe
I thought the pain would never leave
But You're redeeming everything
Everything, everything

This is my awakening
I'm never going back to sleep
How could I after what I've seen

This is my awakening
There's color now in everything
Color now in everything

This is my awakening
I'm never going back to sleep
How could I after what I've seen

This is my awakening
There's color now in everything
Color now in everything

    Singing this over Olive❤️ #wakeupolive

  2. Aimee M.

    March 3rd.. then March 11th.. the days of my awakening. Then I found this song just at the right time!! I will NEVER forget!! God you never quit on me. He never gives up on us. Even when we give up. He’s always there. He will restore that which was lost and taken. We have to loose to win.. a tree has to fall in the woods but it then gives rich life sustaining nutrients back to the ground. A Forest burns down but comes back as a new forest,, all things are redeemed and made new again through our death, suffering and pain. We may burn, we may fall but from that are made new beginnings!!!

    Only if u been there that u will understand this video... This song... Am fighting my battles everyday... Several mental illness from my childhood.. Anxiety, bipolar, narcisssm, & several more.. Its hard for me to trust on people... Its hard to find human & society that could love me for who i am with my condition (especially with my narcissistic tendency) even my family... Jesus is my only faithful and pure friend in heart so far.. He never leave me... thank You Jesus...🙏without Jesus life has no meaning to lived🙏🙏

  19. Steph Gomez

    This song is absolutely amazing it speaks directly to my soul . I felt everything in this song and the video is breathtaking . Depression is hard to live with and my relationship with god has been broken for so long and I’m awakening to his never ending love ❤️

  20. Wonderfully Made

    This VIDEO RUINED THE SONG!!!!!!
    everyone has an opinion and it seemed like a demon possessed person dancing..ive been thru a shit load of pain and the lyrics are good but this video SUCKED AND IS DARK NO I DONT AGREE AND IF YOU KNEW PAIN AND SAW THIS ITS ACTUALLY KIND OF SCARY NOT AT ALL CHRISTIAN LIKE AND EVERYONE KISSING ASS BE HONEST IT SUCKS AND IS DARK AND NONE OF YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY AWAKE SMH
    And the  voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;

  21. Eddie Kovynev

    Woah, this is scarier than lady gaga and miley cyrus combined. Are they possessed?

  22. J Noble

    amazing teamwork in this - thank you!

  23. My Bub

    Why the mirrors
    What is with the reflections

  24. My Bub

    God pulled me from my hell
    I AM WIDE AWAKE NOW

  25. Misty Arnold

    Poor girl... Crying in a mansion, slow motion slam dancing her pain away... Im sure she'll work it out.

  26. Joshua Siniscal

    This video gives me chills every time I watch it.

  27. Dee Allison

    This song really speaks to me. When you battle depression it’s hard to leave the bed. I wear a mask almost all the time. Because I don’t want others sad.

  28. Haley Patillo

    The melody of the line "I thought that I would never breathe" reminds me of another song. What is it?
    Her voice reminds me of Shania Twain

  29. Tabitha Elisabeth

    This came right before I decided to stop living a double life, and come clean to God.

  30. Christina & Josue

    After two miscarriages in a row we are now expecting our first baby girl 💕

    Denisha & Chase

    Amazing song, Amanda! <3

  42. quick Maffs44

    This is exactly what I needed.
    Thank you for sharing your talents.
    Praise God for your message

  43. Anthony Ennis

    I need to look up this type of dance correct me if I’m wrong “contemporary” dance?

  44. Aliah Mitchell

    I listened to this song the minute it came out but the Lord has been bringing me back to watch the video and listen to the song over the last couple days and I know there’s something about it I haven’t fully grasped yet. But every time I do come back, I don’t regret it. This is my awakening, this is my generation’s awakening.

  45. Shirlee Kent

    This is my song today. Bless you and thankyoy

  46. Jessica is Light

    I love the interpretation I just wish they made them look more alike. Like maybe if they wanted to express darkness and light make her wear white and the other black you know.

  47. Leigh Wilkinson

    Fresh out of rehab for depression and drug addiction where Jesus delivered me from both. Someone told me about this song and I haven’t stopped playing it since. I haven’t been able to see in color for years. God can and will deliver you if you are willing to trust Him. I am so thankful for who He is and who He has made me!!!

  54. camilla beraldo

    Que música incrível meu Deus, alguém do Brasil comigo ?

  55. Wennedy Viana

    Tradução-Português
    Preso dentro de uma casa que eu construí
    Tranquei as portas e fechei as janelas
    Sem força sobrando para pedir ajuda
    Eu me escondi na cama embaixo das cobertas

    Preso dentro de um tom de azul
    A tristeza era meu único conforto
    Eu não sabia que só você
    Poderia preencher meu mundo com todas as cores

    Este é o meu despertar
    Que enquanto meu coração estava dormindo
    Você estava me ressuscitando
    Eu pensei que nunca respiraria
    Eu pensei que a dor nunca sairia
    Mas você está resgatando tudo

    Agora há um amanhecer em cada turno
    Você fala comigo em novos começos
    Um raio de sol para curar a mágoa
    A música pára, mas você ainda está cantando

    Este é o meu despertar
    Que enquanto meu coração estava dormindo
    Você estava me ressuscitando
    Eu pensei que nunca respiraria
    Eu pensei que a dor nunca sairia
    Mas você está resgatando tudo
    Tudo tudo

    Este é o meu despertar
    Eu nunca vou voltar a dormir
    Como eu poderia depois do que vi
    Este é o meu despertar
    Há cor agora em tudo
    Tudo está colorido
    Este é o meu despertar
    Eu nunca vou voltar a dormir
    Como eu puderia depois do que vi
    Este é o meu despertar
    Há cor agora em tudo
    Tudo está colorido

    SE TIVER ALGUM ERRO ME PERDOEM, COPIEI E COLEI DO LETRAS DE MUSICA PRA MIM MESMO LER E POSTEI PENSANDO QUE PODERIA AJUDAR OUTROS QUE NÃO MANJAM MUITO DE INGLÊS ❤

  56. Er Ge

  65. Adel Nakulonda

    There is colour in everything!! Reminds me when I used to love and only wear grey😅

    logan izzo

    Should have seen me when I was in my emo years I dyed my hair black put black eyeliner on me through most of middle and high school

  66. Teresa Loveall

    No, no, no. This seems very demonic, and witchcrafty. God is light. In him is no darkness AT ALL. This needs to stop.

  67. Kristin Travis

    this is my awakening 🥰

  68. mey hu

    Ok, you need Jesus.

  70. KJ JEWELRY

    This video is pure demonic... The Bible says the Holy Spirit is like a dove. This wild, crazy video full of mirrors looks like a black magic video made for witches. And the last part of the video showing 1 eye, the all-seeing eye. This video made my spirit very uncomfortable. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!

  71. Fallon BlueGem

    love the song.... the video is ehhhh

  72. Stephanie Pascual

    She has an amazing voice but this interpretive dancing is just a bit creepy to me. Looks like thrashing and convulsions and does not seem to fit the topic of "awakening".

  73. Tim Hollins

    Brilliant. Thank you.

  74. Rachael Bill

    Well, when you don't want to relate to a song and a video but you do... Thank you for being real. I understand it now. I had my second miscarriage this week.

    AnaEmanuela

    Sending you love and I believe in your healing <3

  75. kiyrah martin

    This Awakening reminds me of a little girl and the house I lost everything my grandma passed away 😥😭😰😢😢

  76. Samson Wai

    I am a gay guy who battles with darkness everyday. Feeling depressed and been throwing myself the pity party everyday...I am able to wake up everyday to carry on just because i trust God will lead me on and i believe in his continuity and eternal hope. Therefore, i live on.

    Prayers are much appreciated guys.

    Jeremiah Gibson

    Samson Wai God’s gotcha!!!

    Timothy Matula

    Samson, I declare that your heart is open to receive the Love of God, that you shall know the Love of God, and in knowing shall be filled with His fullness. All negative emotions in your heart come out, right now. I release all of the love, joy, and peace that He has given me to fill you up and over anything you’ve ever experienced. Be whole.

  77. Kenneth Pensyl

    ❄️📹, ➕🌟🎶🌬️🎙️🎶2️⃣. (cool video, and awesome music too)

  78. Joshua Siniscal

    This video gave me chills!! SO POWERFUL!

  79. Lashunda Marye

    great song

  80. SelfAccountable

    Read about the true, Cult-like nature of Bethel Redding, Bethel Music, and the Word Faith/Prosperity Gospel movement. Bethel kicked an 18 year old woman out of school for bringing righteous Biblical critique towards Bethel's false doctrine - listen here -- https://cultish.simplecast.fm/a91d5076

    Flower Rose

    wasn't biblical critique at all, in my opinion.

  81. Bruno JK

    Sadness was my only comfort... True.

  82. Anu Madhubhashinie

    Love you Amanda. Glad you're OK now.

  83. Gina Lee

    This is an emotional and spiritual song all Glory to the King 😊😍

  88. Esfuerzo Realizado

    Lovely.

  89. Tameras Grove

    That inner fight...the one that says you will live and not die when dying seems like the best option. The fight to see in color again, to live, to breathe, to dance, to worship. It's always worth it regardless of the loss that occurs in battle. Lose the grave clothes put on Christ and live to the full. It isn't easy but it He is worth it.

  90. Alexandria Davis

    All the imagery in this video seems rather... dark. Very unsettling, and the lyrics are very me, my, I focused. Not sure how this is worship? Great storytelling - but something’s off here.

    Flower Rose

    I encourage you to listen to her other songs. House on a Hill is powerful :) :)

    Alexandria Davis

    Flower Rose both songs have beautiful melodies, they are artistic. But neither address God in worship. One just describes her life as “awakening” the other speaks for Him.

    Not disputing the art. Only that there’s a lack of telling God how lovely we think He is. That itself is worship.

  91. Katie Malkus

    I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!! this song means sooo much to me!

  92. Humperdink Hooperdink

    They look like The OA extras...lol😂😂😂

    Regardless its a beautiful song! Very powerful. Thankyou Amanda for your continued pursuit of God.

  93. Lily Jaramillo

    Beautiful song! I love how she pours out her heart in this Album. And even with her divorce she makes a comeback and the music has so much meaning and pure and a beautiful story !! It’s amazing how when your a singer you can heal with music and with God . Praying for her ❤️🥺

    You were resurrecting"

    Elijah Roe

    @Sagastume Storm Story Amen! Cling to God man, I promise that he will never let you down! He loves you so much and you are forever his. God bless you man and remember that your loved and there's nothing that can snatch you away from God's hands.

    Sagastume Storm Story

    @Elijah Roe I'll do my best.

    Joan Moody

    @Aurora Borealis I was wondering what all this weird stuff (like the hall of mirrors) represents. I feel in my spirit that it is not of God.

    Marilyn RM

    Ismael Rodriguez I believe the light , the awakening of the songwriter

    wtfskilz

    Ohh the pain the pain of feeling nothing, the pain of being dead.
    Now that I’ve felt the pain of love, I’m becoming addicted to the pain.
