We do our best, we stay in step
As time goes marching by
But there's something wrong
We don't start living until we almost die

Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah
And the universe listens

Well, I was born, the silver thorn
On a Midwest rose
I found out fast love is last
And it comes and goes

I made a deal, hearts to steal
They will know my name
I'll pay the price, any price
Just give me the fame

Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah
And the universe listened

A perfect song, my love is wrong
So I ache the dark
A hero's close, the story goes on
But I hate the part

I chose to fall, destroy it all
But I will rise again
I believe in love, please send me love
And I will try again

Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah
And the universe listened
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah
And the universe listened

Remove the dark, peel my heart
Make my body whole
I found my angels, found my spirit
Yes, I found my soul

Teach me how, show me now
This light has taken me
I'm not ashamed, help me explain
This awakening

Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah
And the universe listened
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah
And the universe listened

Oh, yeah
