If someone had told me we'd be here tonight
I wouldn't have to hide my surprise
This is so crazy that we can say this is happening
Is this what it means to be truly happy

'Cause the world opens up
And it's all written in the stars
It's written for the both of us
It's written for the both of us
It's written for the both of us

And now they can carve our names into history
If it weren't for you, I wouldn't be who I get to be
Right now the only sound is our beating hearts
This is what it means to be in love

[Repeat Chorus]

And all of the waiting, waking from daydreams
It's all been worth it, to have this first glimpse
We had our doubts once, now we are so close
Right on the earth's edge, this is our moment

[Repeat Chorus]
