Verse 1:

A5        D5                     B5       D5
I've been waiting a long time    for this moment to come I'm 
destined  for anything at        all____________

Downtown  lights will be shining on me    like a diamond
ring out  under the midnight     hour___________ 
no one    can touch me now and   i can't  turn my back it's 
too late  ready or not at        all____________               Well

Chorus 1:

F#5         F+          E5          B5

dawning   of a new era       calling  don't let it catch you
falling   ready or not at    all______________      
so close  enough to taste it almost   i can embrace this 
feeling   on the tip of my   tongue___________
