Itís been so long since Iíve seen the sunshine
So many years have passed
Waiting up for a new tomorrow
How long will this night last?
I see a child playing in my memory
I see those memories burn...
Waiting for love and innocence to return
Ooh, the daylight is calling me home to you
Ooh, thereís nothing else Iíd rather do
The dawn of a real new age is breaking
Iím gonna hold on until
Ooh, I can see it coming over the hill
How many falls does it take to break you
Before you realize
How many shakes does it take to make you
Open up your eyes
Iíve been so lonely and my heart is aching
So now Iím asking you please
I bet you always knew youíd get me back on my knees
Wasting my time just wandering around
Get in my car and drive downtown
Nothing can stop me this time around
Iím leaving it all behind...
