lyrics

what do you when your dreams come true?
What do you do when they don’t?
in the shadows before the stars appear
do you ever fear that they won’t?

What will you do with your castle made of sand?
Will you curse the evening tide?
when the waves come rolling in
will you push the windows wide and

take the love that’s in your heart
and make a brand new start?
or stand still and break apart
and sink down like a stone?
what do you when your dreams come true and
what will you do when they don’t?

every night when you walk out on that wire
it won’t matter where you’ve been
the crowd will stomp and cheer and wait for you to fall
so take a step and let the great world spin

take the love that’s in your heart
and make a brand new start
or stand still and break apart
and sink down like a stone?
what do you when your dreams come true and
what will you do when they don’t?

i believe that angels are waiting at the door
any minute now, they’ll break through the floor
don’t be afraid, it’s what they came here for
if you let them, they’ll lift you
and carry you back home
