Awake Story

~ Awake Sangha ~

We were all young when we first saw you
We close our eyes and the flashback starts
We’re sitting there, in the meditation hall

See your lights, see your eyes, and your smile
See you make your way to the stage
And say Good morning
At the moment

That you are Zen Master, you are an Awake one
And then I knew, you are my only sunshine
And I was crying on the inside
Please bring us to your world

And we said
“Zen Master, take us to the world that you live in. We’ll be patient, and practice sincerely. You’ll be the teacher, I’ll be the student. It’s an Awake journey, Zen Master say yes.”

So we sneak out to the center to see you
They don’t believe Awake like we do
We’ll close our eye, and return to our breathe

‘Cause you are Zen Master, but we’re only human. And our family said don’t listen to Zen Master, but you were everything to us, We were begging you to let us stay.’

And we said
“Zen Master, take us to the world that you live in. We’ll be patient, and practice sincerely. You’ll be the teacher, I’ll be the student. It’s Awake journey, Zen Master say yes.”

The heart sutra, remember to keep it inside
Just like what you taught us, and it’s real
Don’t be afraid, and we made the right choice
Follow ZM, to transform ourselves

Oh, oh
Oh, oh

We got tired of waiting
Wondering if we ever could come to your world

Our faith in us is fading
Will we be able to ever wake up

But you said
“Remember what your clear goal is. The Awake door will always be open. Don’t give up, keep your awake love. It’s Awake story. Awake world here we...come .”

Oh, oh
Oh, oh

Awake world, here we, come
