Sailing through the tunnels
In the morning by yourself
There’s a very special feeling
True sensation, all is well
If you stand and reach your arms out wide
Close your eyes and try to fly
It’s an underground illusion
Tricking you from side to side

We knew all the answers and we
Shouted them like anthems
Anxious and suspicious that God
Knew how much we cheated

It can’t come quickly enough
And now you’ve spent your life
Waiting for this moment
And when you finally saw it come it
Passed you by and left you so defeated

Skyscrapers rise between us
Keeping me from finding you
If the concrete architecture
Disappeared there’d be so few
Of us left to navigate and defend
Ourselves from the tide
It’s an underground illusion
Tricking you from side to side

There’s no indication of what
We were meant to be
Sucking up to strangers throwing
Wishes to the sea

And it can’t come quickly enough
And now you’ve spent your life
Waiting for this moment
And when you finally saw it come it
Passed you by and left you so defeated

Scissor Sisters – It Can’t Come Quickly Enough
