Marc Anthony – There You Were lyrics

I was counting down the minutes
I was wishin' on the stars
I was prayin' for a sign
And tryin' to beat the odds
I was dreamin' of you
Long before I saw your face
And there you were
Waitin' for that day
Then you reached through the hurricane
When you, baby, you called my name

You broke through the storm
And you turned back the night
Baby you are the fire
Burnin' the midnight sky
And your love
Keeps taking me higher
Just when all hope was gone
Where the hero belongs
There you were
There you were

Must have broken into heaven
Just to roll back the clouds
Were you on a mission
Were you seeking me out
Was I that one in a million
Was I that one sacred kiss
That you couldn't chance
You just couldn't miss
Then you, babe, you whispered through the silent tears
When you, you swept away all my fears

(Repeat Chorus)

Standin' in the middle of nowhere
With your arms wide open
And you, you were the reason
When there was no reason in my life
You're the reason in my life

(Repeat Chorus 2X)

Like the light in the eye of the storm
Tellin' me not to cry anymore
There you were
Where I watched my whole world fall apart
Shinin' through like on angel from afar

Oh, like an angel

(Repeat Chorus)
