I was waiting for you
Backstage, and in friends' homes
I was waiting for you
In the street, and in the night
I was waiting for you
Now you're here
Now you're here

All the time that I let slip by
I was worrying
In the end, you found me and
We were rebuilding
In the day, and in my mind
I was waiting for you
Washing clothes, standing in line
I was waiting for you

Like and island, ok, I guess
Oh, but half asleep
I recognize my home address
I was ground and beach
The air around me was still
Locked out, still outside
You re-imagined the story
You rewrote every line

But I'm still waiting for you
Start again, in a foreign town
This is how it is
Head down
I wash the dish and I twist the lid
Are you near?
Are you near?

In a striped shirt
And a grand tote bag
I didn't see your ring
Scan my street, I haven't seen you since
Were you just visiting

Like an island, ok, I guess
Still a third asleep
I recognize my home address
I ground my wings
Standing on love's corner
Waiting for my ride
To get your house in order
They say it must come from inside

Les années réinventées
Tu as un tel effet
Tu ne dois pas oublier
T'és ma sorcière et ma fée

From every apartment
A different kind of rhyme
Not done walking
I pass so many rhymes
