I've waited hours for this
I've made myself so sick
I wish I'd stayed asleep today
I never thought this day would end
I never thought tonight could ever be
This close to me

Just try to see in the dark
Just try to make it work
To feel the fear before you're here
I'll make the shape come much too close
I pull my eyes out, hold my breath and wait
Until I shake, shake, shake

But if I had your faith
Then I could make it safe and clean, clean, clean
Clean, clean, clean
If only I was sure
That my head on the door was a dream, dream, dream
Dream, dream, dream

But if I had your face
Then I could make it safe and clean, clean, clean
Clean, clean, clean
If only I was sure
That my head on the door was a dream, dream, dream
Dream, dream, dream

But if I had your face
Then I could make it safe and clean

I've waited hours for this
I've made myself so sick
I wish I'd stayed asleep today
