Well, this could mean just everything, it could mean you have it all,
It could mean that you found yourself, or that you really took a fall,
It could mean that it’s time to leave, or that it’s time to go,
It could mean that the greatest truth is the one you always know.
And I see that daylight’s coming and the darkness starts to fade,
I know that they made promises, but I’m scared I’ll be betrayed,
But with you right there beside me I know, I know for sure, that - it’s gonna be a brand new day.
This time we could make it, we could really have a prayer,
This time I could be someone, or you really couldn’t care,
This chance has come a second time, my mind is open wide,
I listen now to everything and let it all abide.
There are people who ask me questions, but I have nothing left to say.
An angel at my shoulder to help me find the way.
But with you right there beside me I swear on my life that –
it’s gonna be a brand new day.
With disappearing innocence I find my feet at last,
and now I see the truth of things, this all will come to pass.
The years will never hold me, but only let me know,
the future and the past are the country of the soul.
And all the lies they told us, well they just start to fade away,
And all the things they promised, the things we’d have without delay,
Yes, all these things are nothing, are just nothing at all –
when compared to a brand new day.
It’s time they knew,
The times I’ve tried,
But now it’s time to say goodbye
It’s time for me,
To find a way,
It’s time to make a brand new day.
