Lyrics
Heaven knows
The time is right.
I need a change in my direction
New excuses, new alibis,
New ways to chase the same old dream.
I made my choice.
I hope I'm right.
Gonna fix my situation.
No more chasing after miracles.
Four-leaf clovers, wishing wells.
Too many tomorrow's
I've waited for.
But I ain't gonna be that fool anymore.
'Cause I know,
Change has gotta come.
And ready or not,
I'm through with waiting for unanswered prayers.
I'm gonna shout it to the world.
Ready or not.
I'm gonna dry up all my wasted tears.
Stop feeling sorry for myself.
These tears ain't gonna help this time
Disappointment's been my address.
I can't believe I let it happen.
But tell the postman that I've moved for good.
And I don't live there anymore
And ready or not,
I'm through with waiting for unanswered prayers.
I'm gonna shout it to the world.
Ready or not.
I'm gonna dry up all my wasted tears.
Stop feeling sorry for myself.
These tears ain't gonna help this time
