Youthfully, I have loved
With a fervent fire I've felt how it burned
I've watched the flame grow bright and proud
And the ache of change as it started to turn

I've watched a heart wandering
Make violent ashes of a home
Or just calmly fade out
It may seem that I haven't had time
To feel tattered and torn, uneasy or tired
But for all I've got left, I'm not throwing it around

I'm waiting for my man
To come along and save me from this mess
It might hit us like a brick
Or we might fall on accident
But we'll know, we will know

You're young, have fun
While your skin is seamless
While there's flush on your lips

You can go home with whoever you want
You can be a siren, you can be a temptress
Oh, but I've played and been played before
I have held out my hand, just to see who might take it
What's the point of dancing with no color in your step?
What's the use of seamless skin
If you've got no one to draw in the lines with?

I'm waiting for my man
To come along and save me from this mess
It might hit us like a brick
Or we might fall on accident
But we'll know, we will know

I wonder if he's tired too
If he's dragging his feet through the moves
Just like I do
I am not focused on losing my faith
Though I'm human in this need
I've got a quiet but certain patience for this thing
