lyrics

What took you so long
What took you so long
What made up your mind
What's different this time
What took you so long
What took you so long
Since velvet April skies
Filled up your eyes

Only now can you see
What you wanted to see
Only now can you hear
What you needed to hear
Only now can you feel
All that you feel in this place
All that you feel on this day

What took you so long
What took you so long
The heart upon my sleeve
Was always yours to reprieve
What took you so long
What took you so long
In a life as short as this
And the struggle to resist

[Chorus]

How does this play
Now you're on your own
The vision never fades
But the time has gone
Holding on, I’m holding on
I’m holding on, I’m holding on to you
The promise half a life away
But the rays are still streaming through

[Chorus]
