"Waiting for the Sunrise" as written by and Brian Price Judy....
I heard a whisper in the leaves
And the shape of broken memories.
I closed my eyes,
Seeking something deeper still.
But the secret lingers here.

Oh come alive again and hear me.
Oh why do I pretend that you can hear me?

The night is swiftly falling
And giving way to moonlight.
The sacred stones are bleeding underneath
And gazing in the twilight.

Are the oceans livid with your rage?
Do the trees reveal your secret name, oh Lord?
A crooked hand was upon my very eyes.
Lesser men have come and gone.
Still, I'm waiting for the sunrise.

I was on the brink of solving this.
But there's a remnant I've still missed.
Pull back the curtains.
Shed the light on all these years.
But the secret lingers here.

Hear me.

    General CommentI'm not really into getting all detailed... so

    To me, it's about someone who's had it rough. Life is weighing down on his back and he feels like he carries the weight of the world on his shoulders.
    There's some perturbed relationship/bond with someone... and secrets never told. Distance between persons... The most important verse, to me, is "Lesser men have come and gone. Still I'm waiting for the sunrise". It sorts of summarizes everything. Lesser men (people with lesser morals, lesser minds etc... open for interpretation) have been before him, many have walked the same path. They found something/someone they were looking for, or found a purpose. He still hasn't found it yet. He's desperate.
    Sometimes he feels like he's on the brink of solving the puzzle of life, but then his conclusions fall back on him, betray him.
