There've been times in my life,
I've been wonderin' why.
Still, somehow I believed we'd always survive.
Now, I'm not so sure
You're waiting here, one good reason to try
But, what more can I say? What's left to provide?

(You think that maybe it's over,)
(Only if you want it to be.)
Are you gonna wait for a sign, your miracle?
Stand up and fight.

(This is it.)
Make no mistake where you are.
(This is it.)
You back's to the corner.
(This is it.)
Don't be a fool anymore.
(This is it.)

The waiting is over, no, don't you run.
No way to hide.
No time for wonderin' why.
It's here, the moment is now, about to decide.
Let 'em believe.
Leave 'em behind.
But keep me near in your heart.
Know whatever you do, I'm here by your side.

(You say that maybe it's over.)
(Not if you don't want it to be.)
For once in your life, here's your miracle.
Stand up and fight.

(This is it.)
Make no mistake where you are.
(This is it.)
You're goin' no further.
(This is it.)
Until it's over and done.

(No one can tell what the future holds.)
Oh-oh-oh-oh.
(Who makes the choice of how it goes?)
It's not up to me this time.
(You know.)
Comes a day in every life.

(This is it.)
Make no mistake where you are.
(This is it.)
You're goin' no further.
(This is it.)
Until it's over and done.
(This is it.)
One way or another.
(This is it.)
(No one can tell what the future holds.)
(This is it.)
Your back's to the corner.
(This is it.)
(You make the choice of how it goes.)
(This is it.)
The waiting is over.
(This is it.)
(No one can tell what the future holds.)
(This is it.)
One way or another.
(This is it.)
