Your gentle voice I hear.
Your words echo inside me.
You said you long for me,
that you love me.

And I want to see you too.
Feels just like I'm falling.
Is there nothing I can do?
Wonder if you hear my calling.

I'm here and waiting for you.
Where are you?
I can't find you.
I'm here and waiting for you.
I'll wait forever for you.

Mom's gone to Heaven now.
Why won't she come back down?
Does she have someone she
loves more than me?

I thought I could love you better.
We were always together.
If we took some time apart
you would finally know my heart.

I'm here and waiting for you.
Where are you?
I can't find you.
I'm here and waiting for you.
I'll wait forever for you.

I fell in love with you
and now you're gone.
There's nothing left
within my lonely room without you.

I'm here and waiting for you.
Where are you?
I can't find you.
I'm here and waiting for you.
I'll wait forever for you.

I'm here and waiting for you.
Where are you?
I can not,
I can not find you.
I'm waiting for you.
Where are you?
Where are you?

    General CommentI like this song, it's a good song about longing for another person.

    Truth be told, this song is actually about James and Maria's relationship from Silent Hill 2.

    General CommentActually the song itself was written for the Silent Hill 4: The Room soundtrack. I see how you might think it's about James and Maria's relationship, however the lyrics more pointedly imply the feelings of a young Walters being confused about who his true mother was (and thus attributing the room he spent his earliest years in as his "mother"). It's a pretty messed up story, but I love it.

    General CommentAkira Yamaoka himself said the song was written about James and Maria's relationship in Silent Hill 2. Just because it's on the soundtrack doesn't mean it's about those characters.

    General CommentI always figured this was about James and Maria (OR MARY...)
    but what about the lyrics,

    "Mom's gone to Heaven now.
    Why won't she come back down?
    Does she have someone she
    loves more than me?"

    General CommentI agree with the second commenter, this is about Walter and his mother. (though for some reason I think of Cheryl calling out to Harry or Alessa for that matter despite the fact that neither wouldn't have in that way)
