A million years she'd been awake
A million years she prayed
For one familiar soul to help her navigate her way
She stood agog at the spray of stars
And thought aloud each day
I've been here so long
Holding on, but

Somehow I know
I can't be on this planet alone
And one waits
One waits for me
One waits
One waits for me
One waits
One will wait for me
And time's the only lonely curtain in between

And you could be a lion
Or a buzzard or a bee
However soft your symphony
I'll know you sing for me
You too wandered the island
With a strange name in your throat
And when you come home
I won't let you go

Somehow I know
I can't be on this planet alone
And one waits
One waits for me
One waits
One waits for me
One waits
One will wait for me
And time's the only lonely curtain in between

Come out, come on out
Wherever you are
