07. New Perspective

For Those Who Wait
by Fireflight



 

I always thought I had it figured out
No need for the benefit of the doubt
I could never look beyond what
I could see I was in control and it was all about me
I'm so sick and tired
Of this selfish life... I want more

Reach up, reach out
This house is burning down
These walls we’ve built are caving in
Reach up, don't give up
We’re standing on the ashes
With a clearer view and a new perspective

I can feel the hardness breaking up inside
Shattered by the tears falling from their eyes
I just want to push beyond the boundaries
Surrendering all control 'cause it's not about me
They’re so sick and tired
Of our selfish lives... they need more

Reach up (we know they need us)
Reach out (and they’re all around us)
This house is burning down
These walls we’ve built are caving in
Reach up (it’s a new beginning)
Don’t give up (with the love we’re giving)
We’re standing on the ashes
With a clearer view and a new perspective

We need to open up our eyes
See it written on their faces?
We are running out of time
Is there no one who will save them?
I’m reaching out

Behind the Song:
“With our previous album, Unbreakable, Dawn really took her lead vocal performance to the next level. As we set out to write this album, I aspired for us to take our musicianship to the next level as well. I feel we accomplished that, especially with this song.” ~ Phee Shorb (Fireflight)
