Lyrics

As I bear witness
To this unveiling
Of all that seemed to be

It's so painful,
Shattered glass
On false reality

And this unraveling
Is so unflattering
To everyone involved

I never thought
I'd be so saddened
To see an adversary fall

It's not that I was in the dark
It's just that you repelled the light
But I am no mans' judge and jury
I am no one else's wrong or right

Just be careful what you wish for
Pay mind to what you ask
Your dreams might all be granted
And your world could fall apart
Like broken glass


Life unfolding
Someone told me
Everything will be okay

So I have been too trusting
I have walked with too much faith
Now I have lost my way

But still I reach for angels
And still I pray for grace
Cause I know that there are challenges
Ahead that I must face

And one way or another
Somehow I still believe

That all the time that I spent waiting
You have been waiting just for me

It's not that I was in the dark
It's just that you repelled the light
But I am no mans' judge and jury
I am no one else's wrong or right

Just be careful what you wish for
Pay mind to what you ask
Your dreams might all be granted
And your world could fall apart
Like broken glass

(Come on, you know, you got to know!)

Still I reach for angels
And still I pray for grace
Cause I know that there are challenges
Ahead that I must face

And one way or another
Somehow I still believe
That all the time that I spent waiting
You have been waiting just for me

It's not that I was in the dark
It's just that you repelled the light
But I am no mans' judge and jury
I am no one else's wrong or right

Just be careful what you wish for
Pay mind to what you ask
Your dreams might all be granted
And your world could fall apart
Like broken glass.
