VERSE:
                         
Well I've seen that giving up,
                    
It has given back to me,
                              
And what's left is strong and true,
                         
And I built it next to you,
                                      
I've waited, I've failed, and I've wanted,

Now I've got it,

PRE-CHORUS:
                                    
And I hold my hand to touch the skyline,


CHORUS:
   
I awake from sleeping,
      
This wide-eyed dreaming,
                   
Was always there for me,
   
Now I wait these reasons,
      
With changing seasons,
                 
You were there for me,


VERSE:
                         
And I'm making up my time (And I'm making up my time)
                         
Through time zones and city lines,
                         
And these days are long but new,
                            
And I share them next to you,
                                       
The postcards and mail that needs sending,

I'm forgetting to send them at all,

PRE-CHORUS:
~                                ~
When I die they will follow you home,


CHORUS:
   
I awake from sleeping,
     
This wide-eyed dreaming,
                 
Was always enough for me,
   
Now I break these reasons,
     
Through changing seasons,
                 
You were there for me


BRIDGE:
                                 
Now I'm given the chance that I want,
                            
I will do it and I'll do it well,
                                      
And for those who have stood by my side,
                      
You are the story I tell,

This is everything I want,
                      
This is everything I need,
                      
This is everything I want,
	
This is everything I need,

CHORUS:

Well I awake from sleeping,

This wide-eyed dreaming,
                  
You were there for me,

Now I break this reason,

Through changing seasons,
                 
You were there for me,
                         ~
You were always there for me.

The bridge lead is heard faintly in the background at the end as well.
