lyrics

Waiting
-----------

Once in a dream I could see all my life
And it felt like my world was all right
A soul in the front row held his hand up high
And he told me to write down these words

I saw inside of my head
Oh the sounds almost come back to me
Why does the pain keep on top of my will
To say you’re the same as me?

What have I been waiting for?
Won’t you tell me why I left my life to chance
this time?
What have I been waiting for
To find the strength to live my life the way
you want?

You have a plan but you say I can’t know
Of the one thing you had picked for me
Somehow it seems so familiar when there
But awake I just discard my dream

I must discover the gift you arranged
But I can’t see it now
Dark times have come and the
light seems so far now
Power seems so close that way

What have I been waiting for?
Won’t you tell me why I left my life to chance this time?
What have I been waiting for
to find the strength to live my life the way you want?

There was a time I confused what you meant
But I found it all again in my dreams
Did I imagine it all now?
Falling and praying and willing it too

Repeating tones that I’m certain are wrong
But the spirit of it is as true
The colour’s familiar or so you might say
But the red could be easily blue

You’re so concerned with the will to resist
The evil within
You must remember that I have free will
To change back to your side again

What have I been waiting for?
Won’t you tell me why I left my life to chance
this time?
What have I been waiting for?
To find the strength to live my life
The way you want me to (live)
