I promised I would be there
I swear I'm on my way
I know you may not hear me
But that's the price I'll pay

And I don't know
How I would ever go
All alone walking on my own

Like angels, you were floating to me
And that's how it should be

'Cause I don't wanna waste another moment
I don't wanna pay for things unspoken
I just wanna race with arms wide open
Take a shot in the dark,
To be where you are

I don't wanna watch the world keep changing
When I'm not with you my heart keeps shaking
Cover up my eyes and just stop pacing
Take a shot in the dark,
To be where you are

I promise you I'm gonna be there
I wanna be there
No matter what happens
No matter how tragic

Because the clock is ticking
The world is spinning
Our lives are passing us by

'Cause I don't wanna watch the world keep changing
When I'm not with you my heart keeps shaking
Cover up my eyes and just stop pacing
Take a shot in the dark,
To be where you are

Take a shot in the dark...
