  • You, oh you
    Are still a beauty to behold
    You've been my muse
    Every story that I've told
    Oh, take me back some years
    To when we were young without a fear
    All along you have been the song that I want to hear

    I've been down the darkest alleys
    Been to the bottom where the angels cry
    Thought it had all been, oh for nothing
    Until I saw you at the finish line

    Forgive me for the ways I've let you down
    Won't you give me another chance to make you proud
    Oh, flash forward twenty years
    Forever keep me young and my conscience clear
    All along you have been the song that I wanna hear, oh yeah

    I've been down the darkest alleys
    Been to the bottom where the angels cry (where the angles cry)
    Thought it had all been, oh for nothing
    Until I saw you at the finish line

    (Yeah, yeah) yes, I've been down the darkest alleys
    Been to the bottom where the angels cry (angels cry)
    Thought it had all been, oh for nothing
    Until I saw you at the finish line (at the finish line)

    Oh, I've been down the darkest alleys
    Been to the bottom watching life go by (watching life go by, yeah)
    Thought it had all been, oh for nothing
    Until I saw you at the finish line (finish line)

    I've been down the darkest alleys
    Been to the bottom where the angels cry (down to the bottom)
    Thought it had all been, oh, for nothing (oh for nothing)
    Until I saw you at the finish line (saw you at the finish line)
