And so it goes another lonely day
Your savin' time but your miles away
Your flowers drownin' in some bitter tea
You're seeing lost opportunity

Find your mirror don't look inside
And see the talent you'll always hide
Don't go kid yourself for not today
Satisfaction is not to far away

Hold on now your exits here
It's waiting just for you
Don't pause too long
It's fading now
It's ending all too soon you'll see

Soon you'll see

Your coffee's warm but your milk is sour
Life is short but you had a flower
Dream yourself along another day
You never miss opportunity

Don't be scared of what you cannot see
Your only fear is possibility
Never wonder what the hell went wrong
Your second chance may never come along

Hold on now your exits here
It's waiting just for you
Don't pause too long
It's fading now
It's ending all too soon you'll see

Soon you'll see

Hold on now your exits here
It's waiting just for you
Don't pause too long
It's fading now
It's ending all too soon you'll see

Soon you'll see [x5]

    Here we are, the magic of lyrics. It's up to you how to interprete them. To me, and i#m not english mother tongue so it might change things even more, it is about taking opportunities and not hesitating because of fear - but it's not as simple as "life is short, take your chances, you can make it if you really want" bla, it also has to me a beautiful underlying message that there are opportunities on your way even if it doesn't look like it, and that you are allowed to miss them but then just keep on going, though this chance is lost well don't keep thinkin about that one since the same won't come again, but that doesn't mean no other opportunites will come. Soon you'll see :) love that song.
