lyrics

No one knows who we really are
They just expect our strength to go on forever
Does that sound familiar

So we keep forcing our lives along
The pain might be numb enough
To get through another year
Does that sound familiar

You were out there somewhere
The only one that knew me so well before
Would you remember

There were shadows hanging over you
And they tore your fragile heart in two
And the light behind your eyes was going, too

So familiar

You were out there somewhere
Waiting for a door to open
And bring you home
Does that sound familiar

You were always in my heart
And every year went by
I wondered where you were
Would you remember

There were shadows hanging over you
And the loneliness engulfing you
And it kills me what they've done to you

---

Beating at my heart
The War of Wings and Waiting
Backwards down my path
To find the right beginning
Two arms open wide
One smile was always facing
Towards the Universe
Could be we weren't just dreaming

---

The golden moment now recognized
To find where we always belonged was together
I'm your Familiar

Why did it take us half our lives
To find where we always belonged was together
I'm your Familiar
