I was standing on the shore, facing an open sea I was listening to the sound of the waves breaking And I thought of all the words that they were whispering And it kept changing
I was standing in the midst of a great company Listening to the voices in ecstasy And I watched as all creation was sang into being And it kept changing And it was changing
And all at once I caught a pulse and felt a rhythm And I thought of the song of the ages Then the balance slipped and opened up the season And I felt like raging
I was staring at the clouds, the rain began to fall softly Filling up the rivers in Texas And I thought of you and maybe you once thought of me We were changing And we kept changing
And all at once I saw a hole into the future And I thought of the bells of creation I heard the voice of God coming in the music And I felt like Satan And I felt like Satan
We were standing on the shore, facing an open sea Listening the sound of the waves breaking And I turned to you and said "we should never leave" We were changing

Until December 5, 1998, a song had to be issued as a single to make the Hot 100. Aaliyah's "Try Again" was the first tune to top the chart based on airplay alone, without any sales figures being included.
