  • Lights are shining bright, it's always downtown on the road
    I have friends that come from outta town asking me to go
    They say, "There's so much going on,
    Why don't you come along and show us around?"

    I tell them Karen's not feeling well so I probably shouldn't go out
    Besides I've gotta fix a list of things I need to do around the house
    Then I hang up the phone, turn the radio back on, and sit back down
    I know my boy ain't here but he ain't gone

    In the morning I wake up, give her a kiss, head to the kitchen
    Pour a cup of wake-me-up and try to rouse up some ambition
    Go outside, sit by myself but I ain't alone
    I've got the Father, my son, and the Holy Ghost

    I've been beat up, I been pushed and shoved but never really knocked down
    Between mom and dad, Uncle Sam and friends I somehow always pulled out
    But the pain of this was more
    Than I'd ever felt before, yeah I was broke

    I cried and cried and cried until I passed out on the floor
    Then I prayed and prayed and prayed till I thought I couldn't pray anymore
    And minute by minute, day by day, my God, He gave me hope
    I know my boy ain't here but he ain't gone

    In the mornings I wake up, give her a kiss, head to the kitchen
    Pour a cup of wake-me-up and try to rouse up some ambition
    Go outside, sit by myself but I ain't alone
    See, I've got the Father, my son, and the Holy Ghost

    I hope, I love, I pray, I cry
    I heal a little more each day inside
    I won't completely heal till I go home

    In the morning I wake up, give her a kiss, head to the kitchen
    Pour a cup of wake-me-up and try to rouse up some ambition
    Go outside, sit by myself but I ain't alone
    I've got the Father, my son, and the Holy Ghost
    One day I'll wake up and I'll be home
    With the Father, my son, and the Holy Ghost
