I stepped through the looking glass,

Walk on by, just a sweeping glance.

Never cared for wasted hours I amassed.

 

I’d pick up my longing, and regret,

Heading to a new day,

And take with me

The lie of my content.

 

I was stuck in my old ways

And let-down days.

But now I’m here, caught in the grey,

I know that I can be.

I know that I can be.

Stolen moments, fear and joy.

So suddenly, so easily, I see,

What’s been right in front of me.

And I can finally say,

I think that I can stay.

I think that I can stay.

 

Maybe I have lost my way,

And maybe I could fly away

But now that I can only see the grey,

I take a step to you and say,

That I could finally stay. 

 

I’d pick up my longing, and regret,

Heading to a new day,

And take with me

The lie of my content.

 

I was stuck in my old ways

And let-down days.

But now I’m here, caught in the grey,

I know that I can be.

I know that I can be.

Stolen moments, fear and joy.

So suddenly, so easily, I see,

What’s been right in front of me.

And I can finally say,

I think that I can stay.

I think that I can stay.

 

Somehow, my defenses

Will just wear away.

And now I’m standing in today.

Chasing all my demons far away.

 

I was stuck in my old ways

And let-down days.

But now I’m here, caught in the grey,

I know that I can be.

I know that I can be.

Stolen moments, fear and joy.

So suddenly, so easily, I see,

What’s been right in front of me.

And I can finally say,

I think that I can stay.

I think that I can stay.
