"Waiting" as written by and Maida/kreviazuk....
Well it all comes down to the things that I never even wanted
I should live my life without holding on to you
But its hard to see the sky through the clouds when its raining
I know somewhere it's blue
Well it all comes down to the love that was never really given
I should've taken more than time to get the truth
And its hard to believe that you couldn't recognize my tears
I glued them on for you.
Waiting to fall apart
Waiting and it all comes down to you
When it all breaks down I won't be the one that's running
But under every rock and stone I try to hide
And it's hard to believe that behind this smile there are tears
I hold them all inside
Waiting to fall apart
Waiting and it comes down
Waiting to fall apart
Waiting and it all comes down to you
I hear you calling, I know that voice
I hear you calling, I have no choice
I hear you calling, I know that voice
I hear you calling
Waiting
Well it all comes down to the things that I never even wanted
I should live my life without holding on to you
And it's hard to believe that you couldn't recognize my tears
I glued them on for you.
Waiting to fall apart
Waiting and it all comes down, to you.

    General CommentThis song is indeed beautiful and Michelle Branch on backing vocals just adds to that beauty. It's a very mellow pop almost country type song that from what I understand is about a person being unable to let go of someone or something that is troubling them and "waiting" for either a resolve to whatever is troubling the person or things to simply fall apart causing the person to figuratively speaking wither and die.
