We're now down to 2.5 days...it's gone beyond exciting don't you think? I think so. Now it's just a matter of wishing Sunday would get here already.

The following video is from Lucy's September 27th, 2008 concert at the Herbst Theater in San Francisco. She's singing Wide Awake (originally sung by Tuck and Patti). I also chose this video because it has an undie (aka panty) throw - something that will also be happening at the Auckland concert because Lucy started the thread and the fans picked it up and now we're going to have a Trans-Tasman Undie War. Some things are just too damn funny to explain.


Wide Awake

There was a time in life
When I felt my only choice was to run away
From so much hatred
It seems sometimes that the killing will never end
I was afraid, I could not see the end in sight
And so I did what many of us often do
I took all my feelings and put them all to sleep
Until I could not feel any more pain

But you cannot change a thing if you cannot feel your heart
And so I prayed for strength to help me face my fears
I remember the day, and although it hurt me deep
I was happy for my tears

I am wide awake, ready to take my place
In the war that's going on for hearts and minds
I am wide awake and I won't hesitate
To stand and tell the truth to save a life

So many suffer and cry
While too many of us turn our heads and hide
For lack of our love
Today 10,000 children closed their eyes and died
It's hard to take, we cannot face the madness
And so we go back to the place where we feel safe
We take all our feelings and put them all to sleep
Until we cannot feel any more pain

But don't you be afraid cause
Wide awake there will be many others
Who will join you on your way
Oh and there is so much beauty,
You just have to open up your eyes
Wide awake sometimes your heart will break
When you hear another anguIshed cry
In the middle of this sorrow
You have got to realize

If you cannot look, then you cannot change
Open up your eyes, don't be afraid
I'm right here beside you
I wll never leave you lonely.

I keep my head up and my heart wide open
I'm here to tell you it is worth any pain you feel
Don't go to sleep, do not slumber
So many are depending on you
I am wide awake ready to take my place
You'll be wide awake ready to take your place
We are wide awake ready to take our place.

I'm thankful and I'm so grateful that I'm wide awake.
