  • This time, this time is my time
    My life, lies in the base line
    You tried to take what was all mine
    My pride, I bowed down and I swear

    My turn to make all the bells shine
    I know that you know that I tried
    I don't count the tears I've cried
    This car has driven its last mile

    As you stand, on the edge, far and low
    Somethin' to believe in
    As you stand, in the rain, and then fall
    For somethin' to believe in

    [CHORUS:]
    Waitin' around all over town [x2]
    For you, to get it right
    Waitin' around all over town [x2]
    For you, somethin' to believe in
    In another world, another life
    I still belong to you
    In another time, you'll still be mine
    I belong to you

    I'm ready, and you're ready so who cares
    But get the stranger's judgment and mean glares
    I always did, what I thought had seemed fair
    I walked away saved by the last hair

    Not easily, my God I was so scared
    Just so you know I can't help that I care
    I pray you're well, I just know that I can't I can't
    I can't be afraid

    As you stand, on the edge, far and low
    Somethin' to believe in
    As you stand, in the rain, and then fall
    For somethin' to believe in

    [CHORUS]

    Even though it's at the end
    A brand new morning can begin
    And the sun will shine again, again
    Again...Again...Again...again, again, again

    [CHORUS x2] Writer/s: JEAN BAPTISTE KOUAME, KELIS ROGERS, MICHAEL OJIKE MCHENRY, NICK MARSH, RYAN BUENDIA, VANESSA CARLTON
