It's a wonder and it's a miracle it turned out this way
After all this time I'm yours and you're mine, we're
Together today
I was such a fool to be so afraid of that thing they
Call love
I forgot my fear we're standing here, what was I afraid
Of?

Can't quite get enough so we strut our stuff acting our
Lives away
Life's a tragedy and it's a comedy but it should be a
Passion play
We're off of the book we're gonna leap and not look and
What happens now is unknown
Yes I caved but I feel saved cause now I'm not alone

Everything is crazy-tell me something new
Ceases to amaze me I'm standing here with you

(Non word vocal sounds)

In the final act I know it's a fact that the curtain

Will fall
When the play is through I'll be next to you
We'll be takin' ou curtain call
We're gonna hang up the costumes, take off the make up,
Shut the dressing room door
Then it's me and you 1 disguised as 2 and twice as good
As before

Everybody's crazy-tell me something new
Ceases to amaze me I'm standing here with you

It's a wonder and it's a miracle it turned out this way
After all this time I'm yours and you're mine, we're
Together today
I was such a fool to be so afraid of that [crazy] thing
They call love
I forgot my fear we're standing here, what was I afraid
Of?
I forgot my fear we're standing here, what was I afraid
Of?
