Lyrics:

This is where I build on what I’ve earned
This is where I cross all the bridges I’ve burned
This is where Life intersects with Art
This is where the barriers fall apart

This is where the old gives way to the new
This is a beginning and an ending too
This is where I cash in and collect
This is where Then and Now intersect

I’ve waited so long to get to this place
Tracing each new line on my face
I’ve waited so long for this moment to come
Just want to go out and get me some

These are the days that would one day come
These are the nights when my mind goes numb
This is the place I wanted to be
This is the face that once was me

Life’s about change, and there’s no way around it
The world can be strange but I’m glad that I found it
Mystery and wonder, laughter and tears
Discovery, recovery, hopes and fears
But what have I learned in all these years?

No one knows what they’re doing here; it’s not just you and me
Life is still a mystery, and always will be
If you can’t make sense of anything, take solace in the knowing
Nothing makes sense anyway, so get on with where you’re going

I’ve waited so long to get to this place
Tracing each new line on my face
I’ve waited so long for this moment to come
Just want to go out and get me some

These are the days that would one day come
These are the nights when my mind goes numb
This is the place I wanted to be
This is the face that once was me

I’ve waited so long to get to this place
Tracing each new line on my face
I’ve waited so long for this moment to come
Just want to go out and get me some

Get me some
Get me some
Get me some
