Transcription

Well I was watching me see it
And hearing me listen
The words I spoke told me the rest I was missing

I was feeling so little, so much of myself
It was like I was somewhere, or somebody else

And I've never seen a Monday so far from Sunday
Together, so close to falling apart
How do we feel this hole in our world-weary souls
And the empty space left in our hearts

Well there's 32 reasons to keep keepin' on
32 reasons to sing one more song
32 stars shinin' down from above
The soft blow reminds us of their undying love
The soft blow reminds us of their undying love

When the cameras aren't around
And the dust settles down
And we're left to care for this collegeing town
There's no more interviews and we're not on the news
And we're all that's left, now what do we do

We can talk to each other, or just turn away
Or sharin' what tearin' at our yesterdays

Some prayers and conversation
Bring this hokie nation
Some hope for tomorrow, today

Some prayers and conversations
Bring this hokie nation
Some hope for tomorrow, today

Cuz' there's 32 reasons to keep keepin' on
32 reasons to sing another song
32 stars shinin' down from above
The soft blow reminds us of their undying love

Yeah, there's 32 stars shinin' down from above
The soft blow reminds us of their undying love
