See a mountain, see an ocean, see the years that bring
Rock and tide close together
Settle down I said to myself, things that come with time
Will always be better

Everyone gets what they want too fast these days
No one knows the way to make things last

Still I say, Hey baby, I'm through waiting
Cause I need you now, I'll show you how
You can take my hand and save me
Come on, save me

Everyone gets what they want too fast these days
No one knows the way to make things last

Now the moon is in the right place
After years of spinning round the sun, so I'm done with
All the times I strained to find a rhyme left me blind
And busted

Everyone gets what they want too fast these days
No one knows the way to make things last

Still I say, Hey baby, I'm through waiting
Cause I need you now, I'll show you how
You can take my hand and save me
Come on, save me

Hey baby, I'm through waiting
Cause I need you now, I'll show you how
You can take my hand and save me

Hey baby, I'm through waiting
Cause I need you now, I'll show you how
You can take my hand and save me
Come on, save me
Come on, save me

    General CommentFirst of all, this is a great song.

    I think it's about a guy who was alone and seeking for love for a long time ("Settle down I said to myself, things that come with time"), who meets a girl. He knows, that some modern relationships is build on fast sex and leaving before dawn ("Everyone gets what they want too fast these days
    No one knows the way to make things last"), but he's tired of waiting ("Still I say, Hey baby, I'm through waiting"), so he tries to convince himself, that she's the one who can save him.

    Just my two cents.
    Sorry for possible mistakes, English is not my native language.
