In a wordless moment, everything changed
And nothing I can do can take that away
And the hardest part is not knowing where you stand
I think I may have lost you before this began

So much pain, I thought it could end
But hello, sadness, you've joined me again
Well pull up a chair, it'll be a while because
Turns I'm not the person I thought I was

So come on, wake up
You know I'm counting on you
I thought I was enough
To pull us through
And I'm sorry for all I've done
You know I was never good at this part
And so it starts

In a whimpering moment, the first one went off
The air became thick, the ground became soft
And everyone feared just what would arise
But I took your hand and said "They'll never take us alive"

So come on, wake up
The waiting starts right now
The end will come sometime
But we don't know when, and we don't know how
And when all of this is done
You'll be the only thing in my heart
And so it starts

Please don't let go
Please don't let go
Please don't let go (come on, wake up)
Please don't let go (come on, wake up)
Don't let go on me yet (come on, wake up)
Don't let go on me yet (come on, wake up)
Don't let go on me yet (come on, wake up)

The waiting
We are forever in the waiting
