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

Ooooh

[PHIL]
Would have taken a moment
Maybe looked over my shoulder
Maybe shed a tear
Now I'm here
A storm blew 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

[PHIL]
Trying to forecast the future
Always stayed a day ahead

[COMPANY]
Ahhhh

[PHIL & COMPANY]
Well that was the idea

[PHIL]
But I'm here

But sure by now I knew this place

[COMPANY]
Ahhhh

[PHIL & COMPANY]
I swear that I knew every hair

[PHIL]
Each line upon your face

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

About men like you

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
