I've waited longer for lesser things
But here I am
Who really knows what tomorrow brings
But here I am

Just in case you were wondering
Just in case you got lost again
Just in case you run out of friends
Here I am

It's so easy just to rip and to tear
So here I am
What you need the most disappears into thin air
So here I am

Maps and compasses may stay true
It doesn't really matter what you do
I have never forgotten you
Here I am

Some days our reach is bound
To far exceed our grasp
I gave up hoping long ago I could fix the past
Here I am

Today I called you for the very first time
In a million years
You would never know if I told you so
'Bout these million tears

Life doesn't wait as it's speeding by
Better grab on fast to hold on tight
And don't let it forget to fight this good fight
Here I am
Here I am

Here I am
Here I am
