    Everything that seemed impossible has new capabilities
    Its amazing how far faith has taken me
    Love songs have new rhythm with new meaning
    And reality isn’t reality, no... It’s more like dreaming
    The air doesn’t taste the same, the breeze doesn’t blow as hard
    The presence of heaven doesn’t seem so distant, no...it doesn’t seem as far

    Nights don’t seem as lonely and dayz don't seem as dry
    The ground doesn't feel as close and the clouds don’t seem as high
    Pain doesn't hurt as bad and pleasure has never felt so good
    And Never doesn’t seem as common, although it really should
    Tears don’t seem to fall like raindrops and the sun seems to shine like Las Vegas weather
    And thoughts seem to take me places where the worse just keeps getting better

    Walking feels smoother while running doesn't come across as an issue
    And those that you needed but abandoned you seem to finally love you and miss you
    Feeling becomes natural and mountains don’t seem as steep
    Trying seems so right and oceans do not seem as deep
    Every word comes with more importance and every action seems to come with more reasons
    To give you’re all even though times change right along with the seasons

    Wow... this is what love feels like huh...?
