Now I think I know why
You sounded so strange on the telephone
It’s hard when you discover
What keeps you going keeps you all alone

Dreams so real you thought the smoke might never clear
Now you hide it all behind endless cigarettes and tears

Somebody waits for the time I know will never come
You get yourself so high
Then you fall down feeling blue
One day you’ll wake up and realize you've had enough
There's a thousand shining moments
Waiting just to happen to you

Wait until you're stronger
There's no sense leaving when you're down so low
Well it takes the heart a little longer
To see the point in finally letting go

You lose your touch out there standing in the rain
When it's all too much you feel like slipping down again

Somebody waits for the time I know will never come
You get yourself so high
Then you fall down feeling blue
One day you'll wake up and realize you've had enough
There's a thousand shining moments
Waiting just to happen to you

Somebody waits for the time I know will never come
You get yourself so high
Then you fall down feeling blue
One day you'll wake up and realize you've had enough
There's a thousand shining moments
Waiting just to happen to you

    General CommentWhat the hell..? One of the Top Three Blue Rodeo songs ever and no ones commented on it yet?

    Definatly a song written from experiance, and i've had many occasions of this happening; You're very happy that a relationship, and then it suddenly crashes and burns... And you feel as if you should just give up on everything.

    General CommentI agree with Delvis. You feel as if you should give up on everything, but you have to remember that there is more to life and there are more chances. You can't let it bog you down forever.

    General CommentI don't think it has to be about a relationship really, everyone jumps to that conclusion. To me, it's about being sick of your life. I definatly feel like this song, I just hope that day that I wake up and realize that I have had enough comes soon.

    General CommentThis song is terrible, terrible. That entire album was terribly. What was Blue Rodeo thinking?
