Shadows fill an empty heart
As love is fading,
From all the things that we are
But are not saying.
Can we see beyond the stars
And make it to the dawn?

Change the colors of the sky.
And open up to
The ways you made me feel alive,
The ways I loved you.
For all the things that never died,
To make it through the night,
Love will find you.

What about now?
What about today?
What if you're making me all that I was meant to be?
What if our love never went away?
What if it's lost behind words we could never find?
Baby, before it's too late,
What about now?

The sun is breaking in your eyes
To start a new day.
This broken heart can still survive
With a touch of your grace.
Shadows fade into the light.
I am by your side,
Where love will find you.

What about now?
What about today?
What if you're making me all that I was meant to be?
What if our love had never went away?
What if it's lost behind words we could never find?
Baby, before it's too late,
What about now?

Now that we're here,
Now that we've come this far,
Just hold on.
There is nothing to fear,
For I am right beside you.
For all my life,
I am yours.

What about now?
What about today?
What if you're making me all that I was meant to be?
What if our love had never went away?
What if it's lost behind words we could never find?

What about now?
What about today?
What if you're making me all that I was meant to be?
What if our love had never went away?
What if it's lost behind words we could never find?
Baby, before it's too late,
Baby, before it's too late,
Baby, before it's too late,
What about now?

    i keep coming back to this page,
    this song really drives me to come back once in a while,
    maybe because the lyrics are exactly what i wanted to say and ask the one who made me feel special and loved before, just when i thought nobody would appreciate everything that i do, everything about me. but one day, he just took me for granted. i still don't know if it's me or he's not sure of what he feels. but i know we both felt something special. he told he he wanted my help -that involves his happiness and sadness but he never explained what it really is.he left me wondering and in pain. he has now a girl. we're in the same class and are graduating in a month and still, even if we've moved on, i want to understand what really happened.after graduation, we won't see each other so that day or these remaining days are my chance to do it.

    i love this song and think that is very touching. I think this song resembles faith. only because the Bible tells us to help people. if we could have more people in the world giving up their time to make a difference in someone's life... IMAGINE what the world could be!
