She waits down by the water's edge.
She dreams of a simpler time.
She waits down by the water's edge.
She dreams of a simpler time.
I couldn't watch.
I couldn't walk away.
I couldn't give.
I couldn't give it up.

She waits for an explanation.
She needs a reason why.
I couldn't speak. I couldn't give an answer.
I couldn't speak a word at all.

She waits for a sign of life.
She searches for a little spark.
She waits for a sign of life.
She searches for a little spark.

I am a candle in a vacuum.
My face is stone.
My lips are frozen.

If I seem a little scattered to you now,
it's just because I haven't learned my lesson well.
If I seen a little shaken to you now,
it's just because I haven't really let it go.
