Before me there is nothing
An empty space, an empty heart
Reaching for forever
Without a place to start

Before me there's this angel
Who's too afraid to cry
Her wings they have been broken
Help me teach her how to fly

Before me there's an ocean
I'm familiar with it's blue
It's beyond my every notion
I know it's depth is true

Before me there's a mountain
I have to climb to see
But I know there will be waiting
A better view of you and me

When I've swam across the ocean
When I've climbed the mountaintop
When I've seen the angel flying
Then I can die to heal your heart

Above me there's an endless sky
But the clouds are never still
In every way like you
Do we love the thing we kill

Can we fight the doubts we keep alive
Can we overcome all fear
Is the battle ever over
Is it ever really over

When I don't try to stop the sky
When I let the clouds be free
When nothing scares me anymore
When I killed the doubt in me

When I've swam across the ocean
When I've climbed the mountaintop
When I've seen the angel flying
Then I can die to heal your heart

Before me there was nothing
Empty space, an empty heart
Reaching for forever
Without a place to start

Before me there's this angel
Who was too afraid to cry
And Her wings they had been broken
And now I watch her fly
