Intro: Em C D 

Verse: 
Em                             Am 
I'm at war with the world and they 
                      Em 
Try to pull me in the dark 
                       Am 
I struggle to find my faith 
                               Em 
As I'm slippin' from your arms 
                             Em 
It's getting harder to stay awake 
                          Am 
And my strength is fading fast 
                 G      D 
You breathe into me at last 
 
Chorus:
     Em         C 
I'm awake! I'm alive! 
       G           D  
Now I know what I believe inside 
Em       C 
Now it's my time 
     G             D 
I'll do what I want 'cause this is my life 
Em                  C 
Here -right here-, right now -right now-!  
     G             D 
I'll stand my ground and never back down 
Em           C 
I know what I believe inside 
G         D              Em 
I'm awake and I'm alive!
 
Interlude: Em  C  D  

Verse: 
Em                              Am 
I'm at war with the word 'cause I 
                         Em 
Ain't never gonna sell my soul 
                          Am 
I've already made up my mind 
                                    Em 
No matter what I can't be bought or sold 

When my faith is getting weak 
                       Am 
And I feel like giving in 
                G       D 
You breathe into me again 

Chorus:
     Em         C 
I'm awake! I'm alive! 
       G           D  
Now I know what I believe inside 
Em       C 
Now it's my time 
     G             D 
I'll do what I want 'cause this is my life 
Em                  C 
Here -right here-, right now -right now-!  
     G             D 
I'll stand my ground and never back down 
Em           C 
I know what I believe inside 
G         D              Em 
I'm awake and I'm alive!

Bridge: 
Em                   Em 
Waking up Waking up, Waking up Waking up 
Em                   Em 
Waking up Waking up, Waking up Waking up 
        Am                           Em 
In the dark, I can feel you in my sleep 
         C                           D 
In your arms I feel you breathe into me 
Am                                         C 
Forever hold this heart that I will give to you 
                        D          
Forever I will live for you!   

Chorus:
     Em         C 
I'm awake! I'm alive! 
       G           D

Em       C 
Now it's my time 
     G             D

Em                  C 
Here -right here-, right now -right now-!  
     G             D 
I'll stand my ground and never back down 
Em           C 
I know what I believe inside 
G         D              Em 
I'm awake and I'm alive!

Waking Up Waking Up. Waking Up Waking Up.

    I agree about the song stars! That’d be fantastic and I know it’s alot to ask for but the album “unleashed” from skillet is filled with songs that would be fantastic for the ukulele. Especially the song “the resistance”. Also this is a fantastic ukulele song!

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
