I'm looking down from the precipice
I hear a roar from behind
The whole world's pushing to let them pass
I think they'd best wait in line, oh, yeah yeah yeah

I'm in the eye of a hurricane
I wait for mountains to fall
The world comes thundering down again
But nothing gets through these walls

I've waited light years for this moment
I've waited light years for you

I'm out there watching the sun come up
And I've got nowhere to hide
The world keeps pushing to get a look
But I'm not stepping aside

I've waited light years for this moment
I've waited light years for you

I've waited light years for this moment
I've waited light years for you

Forces have met to bring me here to you
Nothing on earth can keep me from the truth
Now the eternal flame at last burns bright again
The wait was not in vain, now that I've found you

The storm is raging around us all
A shelter forms in my mind
The world keeps pounding upon my door
But I won't let them inside

I've waited light years for this moment
I've waited light years for you

I've waited light years for this moment
I've waited light years for you

I've waited light years for this moment
I've waited light years for you

I've waited light years for you, for you
Light years
I've waited light years for you, for you
Light years

I've waited light years for you, for you
Light years
I've waited light years for you, for you
Light years
