Lyrics:
I'm up before dawn
Waiting for the sun
To shine through the trees
I feel like I'm the only one
Awake in this world
Of grey mist and green leaves
And I feel at home
It feels good to be alone

Morning mist on the water
Stillness and a chill in the air
As all life, awakening everywhere
Anticipates the morning light
It's not quite day, not quite night

I'm up before dawn
Waiting for the sun
To shine through the trees
I feel like I'm the only one
Awake in this world
Of grey mist and green leaves
And I feel at home
It feels good to be alone

Standing still in the silence
Opening like an underground seed
Trusting in nothing but a mystery
I open to receive the light
It's not quite day, not quite night

I'm up before dawn
Waiting for the sun
To shine through the trees
I feel like I'm the only one
Awake in this world
Of grey mist and green leaves
And I feel at home
It feels good to be alone
