Through all the things I never said and did
Through memories and passageways I'd long since hid
One ordinary life is somehow changed
I can't explain

For all the wounds the longing scars and pain
There's a picture of a broken dream somehow re-framed
One ordinary life somehow exchanged
I'm born again
Don't understand

[Chorus]
It should've been me left standin' out in the pourin' rain
All of my hopes and dreams burned up in a burst of flames
And it should have been a once in a lifetime
I'm still here wondering why
And here you come again


Now looking back through time and space and dreams
The image of your love and grace I've often seen
And knowing now what I could not know then
This was your plan

And still sometimes I bow my head in shame
Desperate in my longing just to speak your name
And finally I'm resolved to simply trust you
And here you come again
I just don't understand

It could've been me left out there wandering aimlessly
Running here running there with no place to be
And I should've been a one-hit wonder
15 minutes of fame
With nothin' gained and nothin' left to lose
My only chance was you
And here you come again
