I hoped you'd come back for me
So I sat down and waited
The air was blowing cold
And people stared as they walked past
But I sat so still and just waited there for you

With a focused look, you headed towards the corner
And I ran like a child after you
And I can't remember words that I was saying
While you put the night in picture frames

You were taking photographs while I hovered by your side
So you can catch this night on film and I can keep it in my mind
You were taking photographs of lights and city life
While I just took it all in by your side

And the train ride home that night was spent in silence
While you held my hand like we first met
And it hit me then, that we were both still children
Afraid of letting go the hand we've held

So I held you close just like your photographs have held on to that night
And why be adults when it takes a child to forgive throughout this life?
And what matters most is that we're able to believe when all seems lost
So why be adults?

I hoped you'd come back for me
So I sat down and waited
The air was blowing cold
And people stared as they walked past
But I sat so still and just waited there for you
