A Ghost in My Shadow

Risk (Wait and See)



I hear a voice in my head telling me it's not over
There's still a chance it could change for the worst, but I'll take it
What's the point of a risk if I don't consider it?
Take a chance, it could fail, it could work, I won't know it

I never knew what you meant when you said I'm not evil
But now it's clear, there's a choice I can make if I want to
How do I know what's right when my instincts steer me wrong?
Take a chance, it could work, it could fail, it won't matter

In the end, nothing ever makes much sense
What to do when the world comes tumbling down?
I don't know, everything is easy when there's no more choice
Wait and see if the risk I've taken has its own reward

You're the one who has everything to lose
I'm the one who won't have a second chance
And we're here, taking one last moment, one more final breath
Wait and see if the risk I've taken has its own reward
