Lyrics

Here I go again
I'm imagining a world outside unlike the one I'm in
Daydreamin' again of when I'll get a chance
There's a world that understands
Where you don't hear the whispers in the room you're walkin' in
Daydreamin' again, all I need is a chance

When I feel my fears staring at me
I tell it just wait and see
I know who I'm gonna be
I know who I'm gonna be
The worlds half asleep
It's gonna wake up and see

If it's a million to one
I'm gonna be that one and
If it's a shot in the dark
I'm gonna be the sun
And I just can't afford to be wrong
Even when I'm afraid
You're gonna know my name
You're gonna know my name

I can barely sleep
'Cause my heart is always racing, chasing, pacing 'round the room
Livin' carefully is something I don't wanna do, huh

When I feel my fears staring at me
I tell it just wait and see
I know who I'm gonna be
I know who I'm gonna be
The worlds half asleep
It's gonna wake up and see

If it's a million to one
I'm gonna be that one and
If it's a shot in the dark
I'm gonna be the sun
And I just can't afford to be wrong
Even when I'm afraid
You're gonna know my name
You're gonna know my name

I can see her now and then
Wanna know what I could be, yeah
I see her laughin', 'cause she knew all along in her ahead
So when the light is hard to see
She's telling me

If it's a million to one
I'm gonna be that one and
If it's a shot in the dark
I'm gonna be the sun
And I, I just can't afford to be wrong
Even when I'm afraid
You're gonna know my name
You're gonna know my name

You're gonna know my name
You're gonna know my name, yeah
You're gonna know my name
You're gonna know my name
