Well I've been running away from you for the past couple years,
spent my days down by the river,
and hoped to see your face.
And it's been hard to speak up when no one is listening to me,
compared to you I am so small, so small.

Your words cannot tell me that my neighbour is burning.
For that I can't believe. So tell me, am I burning too?

The sky's your window, but where am I hiding?
I've been waiting.

It's always on my troubled mind. [x4]

How long will it take for you to fall to the ground?
'Cause I've been waiting here for years,
and my feet are cold, and my back is sore.
How long will it take for you to to realise that you are nothing?
'Cause I've been watching closely, and you just wouldn't show your face.

I was never about this, never about this love.[x4]

It goes on until I'm numb.[x2]

The sky's your window, but where am I hiding?
I've been waiting.

    Song MeaningI think this song's about God and having trouble with keeping your faith. I wish this was my own thought, because I wanted to kick myself when I realized how much it makes sense, but I read it somewhere. I really enjoy these guys. Couldn't say how many times I've seen them, but they are great everytime.But, yeah, read the whole thing with God in mind and it makes a lot of sense.
