Verse 1

Thirteen, that's how old I was when

I decided not to trust anyone ever again.

You were fourteen, we still hadn't met,

We still had six years between us then.

Pre-chorus

Six years that I spent

Waiting for one moment-

Chorus

You take my hand in yours, and the pain in my chest stops.

The imaginary gun, which I'd been holding on to for years, drops.

In a moment everything changes,

I let go of all my vows of vengeance.

And for the very first time in six full years, what's past is past.

One look at your face, I realize I've found my peace of mind at last.

Verse 2

On lonely dark nights, I always knew,

I'm gonna meet someone someday who

Would make me glad that I was alive.

Still had six years to go before I met you.

Pre-chorus

Six years that I spent

Waiting for one moment-

Chorus

You take my hand in yours, and the pain in my chest stops.

The imaginary gun, which I'd been holding on to for years, drops.

In a moment everything changes,

I let go of all my vows of vengeance.

And for the very first time in six full years, what's past is past.

One look at your face, I realize I've found my peace of mind at last.

Bridge

You're gone now, and I'm alone,

But you've infused me with life,

You've reverted me back to that thirteen year old innocent child,

Given me back that smile, and all those dreams that once ran wild.

And for this I'll always be grateful to you.

Chorus

Cause you take my hand in yours, and the pain in my chest stops.

The imaginary gun, which I'd been holding on to for years, drops.

In a moment everything changes,

I let go of all my vows of vengeance.

And for the very first time in six full years, what's past is past.

One look at your face, I realize I've found my peace of mind at last.
