Lyrics

THE DISTANCE BETWEEN WHAT I AM AND WHAT I’LL BE
CAN’T BE MEASURED BY THE WAYS OR MEANS OF MAN
EVERY BREATH I EVER DREW, TRIALS AND TRIUMPHS I’VE BEEN THROUGH
ARE PENSTROKES ON THE PAGES OF A PERFECT, FINISHED PLAN

Chorus
IT’S STRUGGLING WITH DEMONS THAT MAKES THE ANGELS’ SONGS
SUCH SWEET AND CEASELESS BEACONS IN THIS GLOOM
AND IN A WORLD OF DIMMING LIGHT, THERE’S HOPE, HOWEVER SLIGHT
THAT WE CAN STUMBLE THROUGH THE DARKNESS
AND FIND OURSELVES A PLACE
WHERE GLORY SHINES AND LOVE STAYS IN BLOOM

THE ROAD IS NEVER CLEAR, MISFORTUNE EVER NEAR
WE TEND TO ONLY MISS THINGS WHEN THEY’RE GONE
EVERYTHING WE NEED TO KNOW WAS TOLD US LONG AGO
LIKE A LIFELINE TO THE DROWNING NOT SEIZED UPON

{Instrumental chorus}

THE TIME SLIPS AWAY, TRUTH BECOMES CLICHÉ
AND PEOPLE, TIMES AND PLACES COME AND GO
WON’T YOU NEED A GENTLE HAND TO GUIDE YOU TO THAT LAND
OF REUNION AND REJOICING WHERE PEACEFUL WATERS FLOW?

Chorus
