You Are Here

You wonder why you wonder when
You wonder how now and then
How you became who you’ve become
You are here and yet you dream of being there
Of being where you think the good life has begun

Every darkened hallway, every fallen dream
Every battle lost and every shadow in between
Will bring you to your knees and closer to the reason

And there’s no making cases
For getting out or trading places
And there’s no turning back, no you are here

Who can say who made the choice
In the matter of your birth
Or brought about that fateful day
Well you are here and born with fire and desire
You’re the only one can stand in your own way

And every broken arrow, every hardened smile
Every foolish gamble and every lonely mile
Will bring you to your knees and closer to the reason

And there’s no making cases
For getting out or trading places
And there’s no turning back, no you are here

And every sign of love, every seed that’s growing
Every sweet surrender to that silent knowing
Will bring you to your knees and closer to the reason

And there’s no making cases
For getting out, or trading places
And there’s no turning back, no you are here

This a song performed by The Wailin’ Jennys.
