I’ll Wait

You fixed my heart and never broke it
Those farewell footsteps then you chose
Deep midnight hours left me breathless
I couldn’t hold you like a rose

Tell me where I’d have to stand
To hold your gaze for a while
And could I ever hold your hand
If I saw you like a child

I’ll wait forever on my own
I’ll wait for ages all alone
I’ll wait for moonshine in your eyes
I’ll wait for sunlight ‘til you’re home

If you need the warmth of someone
No sense in spending time alone
It’s more “I love you” than “I crave you”
Just tell me when you’re coming home

Tell me where I’d have to stand
To hold your gaze for a while
And could I ever hold your hand
If I saw you like a child

I’ll wait forever on my own
I’ll wait for ages all alone
I’ll wait for moonshine in your eyes
I’ll wait for sunlight ‘til you’re home

Even now the times are changing, nothing stays the same
We won’t cling to what is gone
So even when he holds you close and I’m outside alone
I see your smile and feel so strong

Now in a world where nothing’s sacred
And skies are filled with hate and waste
Flowers bloom for our salvation
Your love is all that I can taste
