"Wait" as written by Sarah McLachlan...
Under a blackened sky
Far beyond the glaring streetlights
Sleeping on empty dreams
The vultures lie in wait
You lay down beside me then
You were with me every waking hour
So close I could feel your breath
When all we wanted was the dream
To have and to hold that precious little thing
Like every generation yields
The new born hope unjaded by their years
Pressed up against the glass
I found myself wanting sympathy
But to be consumed again
Oh I know would be the death of me
And there is a love that's inherently given
A kind of blindness offered to appease
And in that light of forbidden joy
Oh I know I won't receive it
When all we wanted was the dream
To have and to hold that precious little thing
Like every generation yields
The newborn hope unjaded by their years
You know if I leave you now
It doesn't mean that I love you any less
It's just the state I'm in
I can't be good to anyone else like this
When all we wanted was the dream
To have and to hold that precious little thing
Like every generation yields
The new born hope unjaded by their years

    General CommentI also love the beat. Here's an interpretation:

    She's singing from the viewpoint of an alcoholic (i.e. addict to whatever drug of choice) in a broken relationship and has come to terms that she needs a break from her habit first before she can attempt a try at the "dream" of "that precious little thing." ANyhow, I still love this song because of the emotional entry of that synth piano riff.

    Peace
