Augustine Just woke up with a broken heart
         B                            A    D C# E
All this time He’s never been awake before
   B                               A            D C#
At thirty-one His whole world is a question mark
         B           		      A    D C#
All this time He’s never been awake before
G#	   C#	     B       A
Watching dreams that he once had
         E	            G#
Feed the flame inside his head
       C#  B       A           C#    Eb       high E
In a quiet desperation of the emptiness he says…
     			     C#              	       A                    G# A B C# Eb E
“There’s got to be something more then what I’m living for I’m crying out to
you”

2nd verse: same
Augustine All his fears keep falling out
All this time He’s never been awake before
Finding now His old dreams aren’t panning out
All this time He’s never been awake before
But he’s mad to be alive And he’s dying to be met
In a quiet desperation of the emptiness he says…
“There’s got to be something more than what I’m
living for I’m crying out to you”

high E               C#  B                            A
“Hey, I give it all away Nothing I was holding back remains
high E             C#   B                                A
Hey, I give it all away Looking for the grace of God today
