Try, as you may, to hold on to what's in the past
Just don't forget that these dreams may not even last
You have a new path ahead through the ebb and flow
But choose to stay and you're doomed to never know

Every now, Every day, Every night, every yesterday
Some come to play, some to fight, some just go away
Some give you love even when you're in deep despair
Some look right through you as though you're not even there

A glimmer of hope shows a glimpse of how things could be
or you can cope with the fear that you'll never be free
Coping and fear disappear when you win the fight
Follow the sign, What you'll find will be beautiful light

It's waiting before your eyes
This could be a magical life
From now 'till the end of your time
So reach for the beautiful light

So you had a pretty bad week
    (Don't let it get you down)
It all seemed to pile at your feet
    (It's easy to turn around)
It stopped you right in your tracks
    (Just know that you are free)
And you couldn't deal with the facts

You didn't know where to begin
    (You gotta start somewhere)
You couldn't see a way in
    (You were already there)
But you knew deep in your heart
    (Don't you give up the fight)
That now was the time for a start
    (This time you'll make it right)
But you stuck through and through
And you got to the beautiful light

It's waiting before your eyes
This could be a magical life
From now 'till the end of our time
So reach for the beautiful light

It's time to reveal who you are
You're beautiful as I can see
No reason to go very far

Give yourself moments to be
Give yourself moments for love
Open your heart and you'll see
It's your beautiful light

It's waiting before your eyes
This could be a magical life
From now 'till the end of our time
So reach for the beautiful light
It's ready for you so don't hide
We're all in a magical time
Craving a taste so divine
We're all in this beautiful light
Beautiful Light
