You illuminate me
You're the color I see
You're all that shines above
Through the dark and distrust
All the doubt in your eyes
All the stars in mine
Is it the distance you need
Or is it just me

I know you're awake
'cause you shake when you cry
As long as I wait I've got nothing but time

[Chorus:]
Take me in or just take me out
Put me on if you must or just put me down
'Cause I'm done
I'm all worn out
We're either alive or a lie
I'm done with the middle ground

You're the wind at my back
You're the courage I lack
But you live your life like a war
What are you fighting for

Your touch is the water that gives and takes away
So I wait in the gutter for another rainy day

[Chorus]

You close your eyes to see the sun
And all the things you've never done
They all come out in the dark
And once again just break your heart
I know you're awake
'cause you shake when you cry
I'll hold you I'll hold you but you've got to decide

[Chorus]

    General Commentit is about knowing a decision for a "yes or a no" and instead of giving up he/she chose to wait for that decision even if its a no.
