Learned more than I wanted to
About weathering the storm
Open doors, corporate culture
Making the scene

And I believe if such a thing
As destiny or fate exists
Then, in between
Nothing you and is where it fits

And that's the point
Looking into an unfamiliar space
And I know where I am
When I see your smiling face
And hear you say
I love you

I've been feeling so much better today
The gray skies, I watch them pass away
Well, I know I'm not walking alone

And I believe you always knew
There was nothing else but you
Thought the weight of the past
And the fear of the future
Was with me still

And that's the point
Looking out on an unfamiliar place
And I know where I am
When I see your smiling face
And hear you say
I love you
