Times are happy
They aren't long enough
And when we are through with them
We'll claim that we were tough

Love your dream and your routine
But it isn't really you
If your escape, your perfect place
Then do not love the truth

We are all great believers in the Universe's great plan
Desperate to be noticed in a perfect house of sand
When the walls are washed away and the tide returns, we will stand and sing
"I am here, I am fine, I am still breathing"

Think you know a little bit about the places in the dark?
But you don't know the mind and all it's self destructive parts
To hate someone and I am done, it's uglier than sin
The waves of pain return to shore again and again

But I am a great believer in the Universe's great plan
Desperate to be noticed in a perfect house of sand
When the walls are washed away and the tide returns, I will stand and sing
"I am here, I am fine, I am still breathing"

Live with me and be my love but beware of promises
The heart has many chambers and so much more to give
And all the days that we have made and all that lie ahead
Living for the future by dreaming of the end

We are all great believers in the Universe's great plan
Desperate to be noticed in a perfect house of sand
When the walls are washed away and the tide returns, we will stand and sing
"I am here, I am fine, I am still breathing"

We change our name, forget ourself, and it isn't hard to see
That becoming someone new is really just too easy
But hanging on like you have done and claiming all you've been
The hardest of the roads to face and the deepest way to live

We are all great believers in the Universe's great plan
Desperate to be noticed in a perfect house of sand
When the walls are washed away and the tide returns, we will stand and sing
"I am here, I am fine, I am still breathing"

"I am here, I am fine, I am still breathing"
