An Echoed Sound

I didn’t expect any of this
I opened up my eyes
And wasn’t even looking for him
I couldn’t predict any of this-no, no

I cannot believe any of this
I open up my mouth
And can’t even form a sentence
I wasn’t prepared for any of this-no, no

Anticipation eats me from the inside out
After so many years of going without

I’ve finally found an echoed sound
In the voice of another
Now all I need is to hear him speak
That sound forever

I’ve spent so much time looking for this
I opened up my heart
But he’s the only one who looked in
I couldn’t expect any of this-no, no

I’ve waited so long just to have this
I open up my arms
And there I have found him within
I wouldn’t have guessed any of this-no, no

Enter the one who takes away all of my doubt
After so many years of going without

I’ve finally found an echoed sound
In the voice of another
Now all I need is to hear him speak
That sound forever

I can’t see beyond the headlights in the dark
But whatever’s up there won’t find us apart

I’ve finally found an echoed sound
In the voice of another
Now all I need is to hear him speak
That sound forever
