Anthem in the Making

These streets are falling apart
these roads are painted red with blood
we all said, "yeah we're gonna go far"
but as I look back, I wonder just
how much living we've done.
and now every time I see
my old six sting guitar
I wonder where you are
and just believe me when I say
there's an anthem in the making.

Bridge
So open your eyes
don't be blind
and listen to the skies
and hear the serenade I write

Chorus
Because when I look up above
and then at my only
photograph of you
I knew you were the one
But I never could tell you.
But still there's an anthem in the making
it'll say all you need to hear
and tells you the story
of my life and how I wound up here
all alone

Quiet homes I grew up near
are abandoned; one each day.
Not like back in the old years
'member when we first met,
over on Irving Way?
I wanted to make you love me
but that anthem never lived
so I am surrounded by the emptiest
buildings in the world
and pray that you someday
return to hear the anthem
play for you

Bridge
So open your eyes
don't be blind
and listen to the skies
and hear the serenade I write

Chorus
Because when I look up above
and then at my only
photograph of you
I knew you were the one
But I never could tell you.
But still there's an anthem in the making
it'll say all you need to hear
and tells you the story
of my life and how I wound up here
all alone

My empire died years ago
I lost my whole heart
I lost all the ones I'd ever known.
I'm all that's left, in this city without love
But the anthem in the making
can turn cement into gold
it can repair broken hearts
even return you to me.
I have to start believin
that you were with me from the start

Bridge
So open your eyes
don't be blind
and listen to the singing
hear the anthem that I write

Chorus
when I look into the distance
and see you walking to our new home
I know you are the one
I have to be sure to let you know
There's was an anthem deep within my heart
I'll say all you need to hear
and tells you the story
of how much your love helped me get here
Now that I'm not alone

Chorus
when I look into the distance
and see you walking to our new home
I know you are the one
I have to be sure to let you know
There's was an anthem deep within my heart
I'll say all you need to hear
and tells you the story
of how much your love helped me get here
Now that I'm not alone
