Verse 1:

I can hear your smile at the end of the line,

I hear your laugh when you're not there.

I feel you next to me it's like living in yesterday

Though I know inside this life's not fair.



But nothing's new,

I'm still waiting on day waiting on a dream

Waiting cos I care, for you

Will be, I know…

Waiting in the shadows of a dream and I'm not there

Will I ever see that day, again…



Chorus:

It hurts I know,

So hard to show that you're waiting,

Why are we waiting?

Why can't they see in this life I lead,

I'll be waiting, always waiting…

Can you rescue me?



Verse 2:

As your army rides away,

I will walk into the distance and await another day,

It's like a million new ways forward

When you only need the one

To go back to where you started

Turning slowly from the sun…



Chorus:

Oh, it hurts I know,

So hard to show that you're waiting,

Why are we waiting?

Why can't they see in this life I lead,

I'll be waiting, always waiting…

Yeah…



Coda:

They're waiting, their hearts as one,

The longest night, it has barely begun.

Out to fight a war that they didn't start,

Out to find a light that got lost in the dark.

It's amazing, what the world can do,

While you're waiting for a dream to come true…
