Structure + Lyrics 
  

Intro/Verse 

the first star I see may not be a star 
I can't do a thing but wait 
so let's wait for one more 

Verse 

and the time, such clumsy time 
in deciding if it's time 
I'm careful. but not sure how it goes 
you can lose yourself in your courage 

Chorus 

when the time we have now ends 
and when the big hand goes around, again 
can you still feel the butterflies? 
can you still hear the last goodnight? 

Break 

Verse 

and the mindless comfort grows 
when I'm alone with my 'great' plans 
this is what she said gets her through it 
'if I don't let myself be happy now, then when? if not now when?' 

Chorus 

when the time we have now ends 
and when the big hand goes around, again 
can you still feel the butterflies? 
can you still hear the last goodnight? 

Guitar solo 

Piano solo/Bridge 

I close my eyes and believe 
that wherever you are, an angel for me 

Chorus 

when the time we have now ends 
and when the big hand goes around, again 
can you still feel the butterflies? 
can you still hear the last goodnight?
