"Waiting Four Years" as written by Joshua James Bradford and Shane M Told....
I gave you everything,
but it just wasn't enough
to make you stay.
You said you'd give me time and space again.
I asked to see you everyday.
Now I'm waiting four years
just to feel your touch,
waiting four whole years
to say how much I care.
The flowers I gave you,
died, lost and thrown away,
just like me.

Life has passed me by,
reflected in my eye.
Never again will I have
you beside me, you to be there.
The years behind cost more than I'll ever have.
more than I'll ever have
more than I will ever have

Now I'm waiting four years just to hear your voice,
waiting four whole years to lie right by your side.
I waited all this time,
just to see your smile.
I waited all this time
to say how much I care.

Can you see me (x6)
Can you see me everyday
waiting for (x3)
everyday (x2)
waiting for (x3)

    General CommentFour years? Some form of college? He's girlfriend went to college and he misses her, sounds quite simple, but I might just be right on this one.

    General Commentthis song is so beautiful, i don't know what he means by four years, high school? maybe college? but it's still a very sweet song. Silverstein is an awesome band and more people should listen to them, cuz they rock my socks!

    General Commenti have to agree with autums monolouge, it doesnt have to be a specific four years like hs or college it can be any general four years of his life. anyways i feel anyone who ever really liked someone and waited it out for them can relate to this song its so touching to me especially when he says "ive waited all this time to say how much i care"

    General Commenti think that what it means is that there was something that consumed four years of his life, maybe like military or something, and she didn't want to wait for him, so she moved on.
