Been down and low as I can go
With nowhere left to turn
On the edge... I lose control... before I crash and burn
Can I turn 'round... slow down?
Hold... on... I've still got livin' to do
So... far gone... till I found someone like you
In your eyes... you showed me reason to live
Take time... the time it takes to forgive

It's my life...
And I've changed for the better...
I've faced the light
It's worth the fight

See a new day
Start a new way
Get it straight... and it all comes together
Made my mind up
While there's still time enough
I'm alright
I've changed for the better

I was like a drowning man... in a wishing well
Pulled me from the darkness... and saved me from myself
Wake up... shake up...
Let go... all I pretended to be
I... know... I've seen the man I could be

It's my life...
And I've changed for the better...
I've faced the light
It's worth the fight

Face a new day
Start a new way
Get it straight and it all comes together
Made my mind up
While there's still time enough

I'm alright
I've changed for the better


I'm wakin' up to find
With a clean and sober mind
The world's a new place... I'm okay
I've changed for the better

I've opened up my eyes
Glad to be alive
It's never too late... and cheat fate
And change for the better


And I've learned there is no hope
Until we are faced with doubt
We can never fall in love... till we learn to leave without

And I learned we can't find peace
Without conflict in our lives
And the healing won't begin

Until we open up our eyes

It's my life...
And I've changed for the better...
I've faced the light
It's worth the fight

See a new day
Start a new way
Get it straight... and it all comes together
Made my mind up
While there's still time enough
I'm alright
I've changed for the better
I'm wakin' up to find
With a clean and sober mind
The world's a new place... I'm okay
I've changed for the better

Change for the better yeah

I've opened up my eyes
Glad to be alive
It's never too late... and cheat fate
And change for the better

    General CommentWell no offense, but the lyrics are completely wrong in many places...on this page.

    As for the song it's great...it's about starting over, in this case it's because the persona finds him/her self through someone else, and because of that he/she can start over.

    It's a great set of lyrics....I think all the songs on Revelation were great, it didn't feel like any were "filler tracks." Always a great thing.

    General CommentYeah, I expected the lyrics to be wrong; I copied them directly out of the CD booklet. Journey has had several CDs with erroneous lyrics in the booklet =/.
