Augustine Just woke up with a broken heart
         B                            A    D C# E
All this time Heís never been awake before
   B                               A            D C#
At thirty-one His whole world is a question mark

All this time Heís 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 saysÖ
     			     C#              	       A                    G# A B C# Eb E
ďThereís got to be something more then what Iím living for Iím crying out to
youĒ

2nd verse: same
Augustine All his fears keep falling out
All this time Heís never been awake before
Finding now His old dreams arenít panning out
All this time Heís never been awake before
But heís mad to be alive And heís dying to be met
In a quiet desperation of the emptiness he saysÖ
ďThereís got to be something more than what Iím
living for Iím crying out to youĒ

high E               C#  B                            A
ďHey, 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
