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 scars
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, it 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 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 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,

    This song is so sad...I wish to power of music didn't hurt so much..

    Anyway, I feel that this song is about this girl that he still has feelings for. They see each other and remember all the times they had together. However, he broke her heart and she doesn't want to be hurt again. Yet, he is promising that they can work together and pull through. He still loves her, so he asking her to give him another try to see if they were actually meant to be. Because time won't wait forever for them.

    the most important moment is here and now, and one has the power to decide what destiny he'd wanna choose. . .its like sayin that whatever happened in the past, either tears or heartbreaks, one should never let go coz there will always be a chance and a possibilty to patch everything up. . .i really love this song, it has great sense. . .

    this song makes e very sad.

    this song is telling about him and his true love and that he will always love her like no other. and maybe if they join forces and work together they can be strong together again. he has devoted his love too her and never wants too hurt her again. so...What About Now?

    this song just makes me cry

    Its such a touching song and its coming from the heart. I think its about him and his true love and how he is wanting a second chance and that if they can join forces and work together they can make things right again. he has devoted his love too her. and wants her too know that he will never hurt her again. So what about now?
