    Chorus:
     G       C/G
    Awake my soul,
                G               C/G
    You lift me up, you lift me up.
     G       C/G
    Awake my soul,
              G             C/G
    Be lifted up, be lifted up.
Verse 1:
       G
I lost heart, lost soul, lost rhythm in my bones,
       C/G
Got to find my God again.
      G
I was dead, I was gone, and I thought I was done,
         C/G
You were there in the hurricane.
        Em7
But You light up the dawn and You wake up the sun
        C
And You raise me up again.
          G              C/G
Awake my soul, awake my soul.
Verse 2
      G
I got hope, got fears, got an ocean of tears,
          C/G
Still I'm happy in my skin.
      G
Now I know I'm alive, gonna shout to the skies,
         C/G
And Your love is in the air.
        Em7
Cos You light up the dawn and You wake up the sun
        C
And You raise me up again.
         G              C/G
Awake my soul, awake my soul.
Mid Section:
         Am                    C
Cos I'm looking for a fire so reignite this flame;
      Am               G/B     C
Come resurrect me Jesus, come raise the dead again.
    Am                          C
So breathe in me Your fire, we all will burn away;
   Am               G/B    C
I speak unto my spirit and tell it to [awake] [To Tag]
Tag
 G       C
Awake my soul. [Repeat 4 times]
G
Love is in the air,
Am
Love is in the air,
            G/B
When You're whispering my name,
C
Love is in the air.  [Repeat 3 times]
G/D
Love is in the air,
C/E
Love is in the air,
            G/B
When You're whispering my name,
C                G
Love is in the air.

Awake my soul,
You life me up, You lift me up
Awake my soul
Be lifted up, be lifted up

I lost heart, lost soul, lost rhythm in my bones
Got to find my God again
I was dead, I was gone and I thought I was done
You were there in the hurricane
But You light up the dawn and You wake up the sun
And You raise me up again
Awake my soul, awake my soul

I got hope, got fears, got an ocean of tears
Still I’m happy in my skin
Now I know I’m alive, gonna shout to the skies and Your love is in the air
Cos You light up the dawn and You wake up the sun
And You raise me up again
Awake my soul, awake my soul

Cos I’m looking for a fire so reignite this flame
Come resurrect me Jesus, come raise the dead again
So breathe in me Your fire, we all will burn away
I speak unto my spirit and tell it to awake

Awake my soul
Awake my soul

Love is in the air
Love is in the air
When you’re whispering my name
Love is in the air
