Song lyrics
Like a warrior that fights
And wins the battle
I know the taste of victory

Though I went through some nights
Consumed by the shadows
And was crippled emotionally

Somehow I made it through the heartache, yes I did
I escaped
I found my way out of the darkness, kept my faith
Kept my faith

And the river was deep I didn't falter
When the mountain was high
I still believed
When the valley was low
It didn't stop me
I knew you were waiting
I knew you were waiting for me

With an endless desire
I kept on searching
Sure in time our eyes would meet

And like the bridge is on fire
The hurt is over
One touch and you set me free

I don't regret a single moment, no I don't
Looking back, when I think of all those disappointments
I just laugh, I just laugh


So we were drawn together through destiny
I know this love we share was meant to be

I knew you were waiting
I knew you were waiting
I knew you were waiting for me
