Lyrics

[PHIL CONNORS]
Drove out of town, took a right onto a northbound highway.
Was it really only yesterday?
If I had known what now I know maybe I (COMPANY: Ooooh)
Would have taken a moment.
Maybe looked over my shoulder.
Maybe shed a tear.
Now I'm here.

A storm rolled in, overwhelmed me sometime late this morning.
[PHIL & COMPANY]
Think I ignored the warning.

[PHIL]
I spent a lifetime seeking signs, reading lines, (COMPANY: Ahhhh)
Trying to forecast the future.
Always stayed a day ahead.
[PHIL & COMPANY]
Well that was the idea.
[PHIL]
But I'm here.

[PHIL & COMPANY (PHIL)]
I thought I'd seen it all, but sure by now I knew this place. (COMPANY: Ahhhh)
I swear that I knew every hair, each line upon your face.
I thought the only way to better days was through tomorrow,
But I know now that I know,
I know now that I know nothing.

[PHIL]
But I'm here.
And I'm fine.
And I'm seeing you, for the first time.
I'm alright.
I'm seeing you, for the first time.

[PHIL & RITA (RITA)]
I thought I'd seen it all before.
I thought I knew everything there was to know (PHIL: there was to know) about men like you
(PHIL: And I was sure) I thought the only way to better days was through tomorrow.
[PHIL, RITA & COMPANY]
But I know now, that I know
Yes, I know now, that I know
That I'm here
And I'm fine
And I'm seeing you for the first time
I'm alright and I'm seeing you.
