"What Are You Waiting For?" as written by and Matthew Gerrard Bridget Benenate....
There must be a reason you're calling tonight
Could it be you're never coming home?
Why do we run, why do we hide?
When we know there is something wrong?

And if this is what you want then
I can't help you, I can't win this fight

So what are you waiting for?
Someone to come
To carry you out of the darkness
What are you waiting for?
Your eyes to open up
And see me leaving here

Maybe I'm wrong to try and make you see
But you're killing yourself this time
It may take away your pain
But it can't make you whole again

And if this is what you want then
I can't help you, I can't win this fight
And if this is what you need then
Nothing can save you, nothing can make this right

So what are you waiting for?
Someone to come
To carry you out of the darkness
What are you waiting for?
Your eyes to open up
And see me leaving here

If somehow we turn it all around
Would you let me in, would you let me down?
And if somehow we turn it all around
Would you let me in, would you let me feel again?

So what are you waiting for?
Your eyes to open up

So what are you waiting for?
Someone to come
To carry you out of the darkness
What are you waiting for?
Your eyes to open up
And see me
Won't you open up
And see me leaving

What are you waiting for?
Your eyes are open
