Any minute now my ship is coming in I'll keep checking the horizon And I'll stand on the bow And feel the waves come crashing Come crashing down, down, down on me And you said,"Be still, my love Open up your heart Let the light shine in" Don't you understand? I already have a plan I'm waiting for my real life to begin When I awoke today suddenly nothing happened But in my dreams I slew the dragon And down this beaten path And up this cobbled lane I'm walking in my own footsteps once again And you say,"Just be here now Forget about the past Your mask is wearing thin" Let me throw one more dice I know that I can win I'm waiting for my real life to begin Any minute now my ship is coming in I'll keep checking the horizon And I'll check my machine There's sure to be that call It's gonna happen soon, soon, oh so very soon It's just that times are lean And you say,"Be still, my love Open up your heart Let the light shine in" Don't you understand? I already have a plan I'm waiting for my real life to begin Hey heyeyeyeyey Hey yeeeeeee Hey heyeyeyeyey Eeh eeh eeh eeh eh x5 On a clear day I can see, see for a long way On a clear day I can see, see a very long way
