Waiting

Waiting

I’ve been waiting
I’ve been thinking
How what you meant to me
Is still true

Through all the trials
Through all the fire
I’d always think of you
As my own

We’d always been so close
So far
You’re something different
You’re something innocent
And I haven’t found anyone else

No one can come as close
To you and what you are
I’ve never had perfection
Like your perfection
Can’t you see, there’s no one else

Our memories and the emotions we’ve shared
Aren’t ones I want to give away
I want to hang onto them
Reinvigorate them
I want things to be how they were

All the things we talked about
All the things we’d do together
Disappeared at once
Up in a flash of smoke
And then I was left with nothing

I’ve been waiting
I’ve been thinking
How what you mean to me
Is still true

I don’t care
I won’t dare
To think that my heart wants something
That’s not you

It’s not a problem to me
Time is relative
I’d rather know I’m yours
And have you out at shows
Than not be with you at all

You meant the world to me
But I’ve found, you’re so much more
Everything reminds me
Of our memory
How much it means to me

How naïve we both were
To think a break would fix things more
Was it good for you?
It wasn’t good for me
It wasn’t good for anyone else

I’ve been awake at night
I’ve barely gotten sleep at all
Every little picture
Every song
Is something you’ve touched before

I don’t want to lose that
I don’t want to lose you
I’m already willing to wait
If that’s what it takes, I’m already there

I’ve been waiting
I’ve been thinking
How what you mean to me
Is still true

I’ve been lonely
I’ve been fractured
The only one that can fix it
Is loving you

Just tell me what you need
For me to be yours once more
I’d give everything for your love
Every thing I have
Just to be with you again

You shouldn’t worry about me
About what I’d do without you
We’re both still young
There’s time to figure it out
I just want you to be my love

If in the end we end up together again
If these next years keep their weight
I’d never need a damn thing
Not ever again
Having you would be all I need

I’ve been waiting
I’ve been thinking
How what you mean to me
Is still true

I’ve been broken
I’ve been reminded
About all the things we’ve done
And could do

It would be so easy
Easy to be us again
I hope you’d see that
Like you’ve seen before
Through my eyes to yours
