Na na na na na na oh oh . . .
Going through changes from back where I once began um mm
A distant stranger I used to know so long ago um mm
Yea yea yea
Enlighten me lighten me up
Make me all over again
Come on a let me in yea

Chorus
It was like a lifetime passed right through my fingers
(through my fingers . . . umm)
So long ago so much that I didnt know
(so much that I didnt know)
Kind of like a light shined down and showed me how
How to move on that was then and this is now

Waking up it seems am I the dreamer or the dream
Is it possible to know tomorrow unfolds too slow yea
Shakin me waking me up clearing my vision again
Seems like Im born again ohh ooooo

Chorus
It was like a lifetime passed right through my fingers
(through my fingers . . . umm)
So long ago so much that I didnt know
(so much that I didnt know)
Kind of like a light shined down and showed me how
How to move on that was then and this is now

(repeat chorus)
