original lyrics, Ace of Base: The Sign

i got a new life 
you would hardly recognize me 
i'm so glad 
how can a person like me care for you 
why do i bother 
when you're not the one for me 
is enough enough 
i saw the sign and it opened up my eyes 
i saw the sign 
life is demanding without understanding 
i saw the sign and it opened up my eyes 
i saw the sign 
no one's gonna drag you up 
to get into the light where you belong 
but where do you belong 
under the pale moon 
for so many years i've wondered 
who you are 
how can a person like you bring me joy 
under the pale moon 
where i see a lot of stars 
is enough enough 
i saw the sign and it opened up my eyes 
i saw the sign 
life is demanding without understanding 
i saw the sign and it opened up my eyes 
i saw the sign 
no one's gonna drag you up 
to get into the light where you belong 
but where do you belong 
i saw the sign and it opened up my mind 
and i am happy now 
living without you 
i've left you all alone
i saw the sign and it opened up my eyes 
i saw the sign 
no one's gonna drag you up 
to get into the light where you belong 
i saw the sign and it opened up my eyes 
i saw the sign

*CHORUS*
--------
I crossed the line
But you gave your Son to die
Now I am fine
No longer commanding
My life not withstanding
I crossed the line
But you gave your Son to die
Now I am fine
Three days and you were raised up
And rose into the light where you belong
And its where I belong

*VERSE 1*
---------
You gave me new life
I can hardly contemplate the way it came
How can a being like you care for me?
Why would you ever
When I'm not the perfect one
Am I not guilty?

*VERSE 2*
---------
I'm wasting no time
Unlike all the years I've squandered
Now they're gone
How can a person like me bring you joy
I'm wasting no time
Since I now see where you are
And I follow you
