I've been waiting a long time
For this moment to come
I'm destined
For anything, at all
Downtown lights will be shining
On me like a new diamond
Ring out under the midnight hour
Oh, no one can touch me now
And I can't turn my back
It's too late ready or not at all

I'm so much closer than
I have ever known
Wake up

Dawning of a new era
Calling, don't let it catch you falling
Ready or not at all
So close enough to taste it
Almost, I can embrace this
Feeling, on the tip of my tongue

I'm so much closer than
I have ever known
Wake up
Better thank your lucky stars

Well, I'm so much closer than
I have ever known
Wake up
Better thank your lucky stars

I've been waiting a lifetime
For this moment to come
I'm destined for anything at all

Dumbstruck
Color me stupid
Good luck
You're gonna need it
Where I'm going if I get there
At all

Wake up
Better thank your lucky stars
