lyrics

Half there

I still remember everything
the day it started, where and when
the moment that it came to me
and said “you can't be you again”

And in that moment, yes, I knew
nothing would ever be the same
that everything was bound to change:
my life, my world, my song, my name

And I remember how I went
with haste and doubt, with faith and fear
I knew I'd walk a thousand roads
I knew I'd live half there, half here

And then the world became a song
an orchestra inside my mind
a world of lights, a friendly storm
a night of stories to unwind

I met the ones who live inside
the secret spaces of what's real
I spoke with those who had no voice
I gave my voce, we all were healed

I found the doors to other worlds
and saw a landscape with no end
I kept the secrets of the winds
I called each one of you a friend

With colours that were still unknown,
with visions that I could make true
I built a magical machine
and then upon its wings I flew

And all the stories, all the songs
exploded in the shining night
and everybody sang and danced
until the new day filled the sky

But if I stop and think, I see
the toll this life still takes on me
the scars, the nightmares and the wars,
the things that I will never be

Yet if a wizard came and said
“I'll turn back time so you won't go
I'll change that moment, change your life”
I'd kindly say “Thank you, but no”

Yes, if a wizard came and said
“I'll turn back time so you won't go
I'll change that moment, change your life”
I'd surely say “Thank you, but no”

'Cause I could try a thousand lives
but only one's designed for me
I will befriend each wound and storm
There's nowhere else I'd rather be
