I've been waiting a long time
For this moment to come
I'm destined
For anything...at all
Downtown lights will be shining
On me like a new diamond
Ring out under the midnight hour
No one can touch me now
And I can't turn my back
It's too late ready or not at all

Well, I'm so much closer than
I have ever known...
Wake up

Dawning of a new era
Calling...don't let it catch you falling
Ready or not at all
So close enough to taste it
Almost...I can embrace this
Feeling....on the tip of my tongue

Well, I'm so much closer than
I have ever known...
Wake up
Better thank your lucky stars....
(Shey hey hey)

I've been waiting for a life time
For this moment to come
I'm destined for anything at all

Dumbstruck
Colour me stupid
Good luck
You're gonna need it
Where I'm going if I get there...
At all....

Wake up
Better thank your lucky stars....

    The universe has finally given you what you needed to take your opportunity and turn it into success

    All you have to do is hope luck is on your side and fly forward

    Be gracious man and thankful for everything you got and will get
    Waiting and sitting around for your dreams to come true is an era that is done and has passed

    This new era is all about you living your dreams, don't matter if you feel ready, this is your dream. Live it, go forward, and have no fear.

    The world is yours for the taking

    ...just remember who or what you owe your thanks to
