"My Room (Waiting For Wonderland)" as written by and Peter Hammill....
Searching for diamonds in a sulphur mine,
Leaning on props that are rotten,
Hoping for anything, looking for a sign
That I am not forgotten.
Lost in a labyrinth of future mystery,
Tracing my steps, all mistaken,
Trusting to everything, praying it can be
That I am not forsaken.

I wait by the door, wondering
When you will come and keep me warm.
I pray for the end of the night,
Hoping the light will still the storm
Which presently betrays me;
Helpless sea-monster stranded on the shore,
Marooned in an ecstasy of waiting,
I yearn, although knowing that I shall dive no
More
In the tide already racing.

My lungs burst to cry: "Finally
How could you leave me here to die?
I freeze in the chill of this place
With no friendly face to smile goodbye-
How could you let it happen?"

How could you let it happen?
Dreams, hopes and promises, fragments out of
Time,
All of these things have been spoken;
Still you don't understand how it feels when I'm
Waiting for them to be broken.

    My InterpretationTo me, this song is about a one sided relationship. Giving love but not receiving it can be quite painful and it can make you feel lonely.
    I think you can have many more takes on the meaning, but this is how I feel about the lyrics and I can relate to them
