Lyrics
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

I'm so much closer than
I have ever known...
Wake up

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

I'm so much closer than
I have ever known...
Wake up
Better thank your lucky stars....

I've been waiting a lifetime
For this moment to come
I'm destined for anything at all

Dumbstruck
Colour me stupid
Good luck
You're gonna need it
Where I'm going if I get there...
At all....

Wake up
Better thank your lucky stars....
Song Meaning
The main message that comes across in this song (as it's title says) is fulfillment. After a long period of desire, the goal is finally reached. This may have been in the form of a relationship, an event, or something less specific. The milestone that is described in the song could even be the "end result" of the journeys mentioned in previous songs on the album, such as "Hold On" and "Castaway."
