Like a warrior that fights
And wins the battle
I know the taste of victory

Though I went through some nights
Consumed by the shadows
I was crippled emotionally

Somehow I made it through the heartache
Yes I did, I escaped
I found my way out of the darkness
I kept my faith, kept my faith

When the river was deep
I didn't falter
When the mountain was high
I still believed
When the valley was low
It didn't stop me, no, no
I knew you were waiting
Knew you were waiting for me

With and endless desire
I, I kept on searching
Sure in time our eyes would meet

Like the bridge is on fire
The hurt is over
One touch and you set me free

No, I don't regret a single moment
No I don't, looking back
When I think of all those disappointments
I just laugh, I just laugh

When the river was deep
I didn't falter
When the mountain was high
I still believed
When the valley was low
It didn't stop me
I knew you were waiting
Knew you were waiting for me

So we were drawn together through destiny
I know this love we share was meant to be

Knew you were waiting
Knew you were waiting
I knew you were waiting
Knew you were waiting for me

I didn't falter
I still believed
When the valley was low
It didn't stop me
Knew you were waiting
Knew you were waiting for me

I didn't falter
I still believed
When the valley was low
It didn't stop me
Knew you were waiting
Knew you were waiting for me

I didn't falter
I still believed
It didn't stop me
Knew you were waiting

I didn't falter
I still believed
It didn't stop me
