Wherever you are...be all there




You Are Here: The Wailin' Jennys


You wonder why you wonder when
You wonder how now and then
How you became who you've become
You are here and yet you dream of being there
Of being where you think the good life has begun


Every darkened hallway, every fallen dream
Every battle lost and every shadow in between
Will bring you to your knees and closer to the reason


And there's no making cases 
For getting out or trading places
And there's no turning back, no you are here


Who can say who made the choice 
In the matter of your birth
Who brought about that fateful day
Well you are here and born with fire and desire
You're the only one can stand in your own way


And every broken arrow, every hardened smile
Every foolish gamble and every lonely mile
Will bring you to your knees and closer to the reason


And there's no making cases
For getting out or trading places
And there's no turning back, no you are here


And every sign of love, every seed that's growing
Every sweet surrender, to that silent knowing
Will bring you to your knees and closer to the reason


And there's no making cases
For getting out or trading places
And there's no turning back, no you are here
