The Wailin' Jennys You Are Here Lyrics

Last updated: 10/23/2011 11:00:00 AM

You wonder why you wonder when,
You wonder how now and then,
How you became who you've become
You are here, And yet you dream of being there,
Of being where you think the good life has begun

Every darkened hallway, Every fallen dream,
Every battle lost and Every shadow in between
Will bring you to your knees and Closer to the reason

And there's no making cases, For getting out or trading places
And there's no turning back, No you are here
Who can say who made the choice,
In the matter of your birth
Who brought about that fateful day,
Well you are here and born with fire and desire
You're the only one can stand in your own way

And every broken arrow, Every hardened smile
Every foolish gamble and Every lonely mile
Will bring you to your knees and Closer to the reason

And there's no making cases For getting out or trading places
And there's no turning back No you are here

And every sign of love, Every seed that's growing
Every sweet surrender To that silent knowing
Will bring you to your knees and Closer to the reason

And there's no making cases For getting out or trading places
And there's no turning back No you are here...
