"Wait" as written by Terry Wolfers, Petter Ericson Stakee, Sam Kearney, Austin Beede and Alec Higgins....
The wind hit my back
Cold as I remember
And caught me off guard
In the middle of December
Sometimes a crowded room
Can feel the most alone
Sometimes I wonder
Why you won't pick up the phone

This wall is glaring
And it's too hard for me to climb
I've ran and ran
And now there's nothing left behind
I see a picture of a broken man inside
I tried and tried
And now there's nothing left but time
And I'll wait for you
I'll wait for you alone
And I'll wait for you
I'll wait for you alone
Together we will fly tonight
Leave all of the rest behind
I'll wait for you

These hands can feel
Like they're not even mine
A tree and hill and a cry in the night
Sometimes a little step is the greatest divide
Sometimes I feel your breath right at my side

When this wall is glaring
And it's too hard for me to climb
I've ran and ran
And now there's nothing left behind
I see a picture of a broken man inside
I tried and tried
And now there's nothing left but time
And I'll wait for you
I'll wait for you alone
And I'll wait for you
I'll wait for you alone
Together we will fly tonight
Leave all of the rest behind
I'll wait for you

Here I am at the edge of the road
One hand on the end of the rope
One crack and it breaks alone
Wondering who's gonna take me home
On my knees when you call my bluff
Begging please from the edge of the rough
I know when I've had enough
And I know it, and I know it

I see a picture of a broken man inside
I've tried and tried
And now there's nothing left but time
And I'll wait for you
I'll wait for you alone
And I'll wait for you
I'll wait for you alone
Wait here, stay here
Say you're the only one I need
I know it, I'm holding
Together we will fly tonight
Leave all of the rest behind
I'll wait for you
I'll wait for you
Wait here, stay here
Say you're the only one I need
I know it, I'm holding
Wait

    General CommentObviously, the song is about waiting. But for what? The return of Jesus. Kearney is saying how, despite his isolation in the world ('crowded room') he will wait for the Lord to come, and to take him away from this. "Wonderin whos gonna take me home" Christians see heaven as their true home..with their Father, God.
    "I know when I've had enough
    And I know it, and I know it" These lines..i can only realy relate to the passage in the Bible which states that the Lord will only put us through, whaat he knows we can handle.
    A beautiful song, i love it! Almost brings a tear to my eye sometimes.
