Lyrics

Waiting for the Sun

 

Night… you come and steal me from the evening

Slow…I barely feel your vapored breath

Kiss….something passionate and urgent

like a matter of life or death

 

Hope….the only reason for tomorrow

Love….a fiction feeding me your line

Tears….the wages paid in full by dreamers

pathways too familiar for a sign

 

I know you feel my in the shadows

Like a bird in rain before the warmth of dawn

No one could be farther from love’s arrow than I am

Oh and I am left here waiting for the sun

 

Blessed…just a word that you once called me

Blind….I half stumble through the dark

Freedom…..what greater coldness could be offered

like a winter that leaves it’s sterile mark

 

I know you feel my in the shadows

Like a bird in rain before the warmth of dawn

No one could be farther from love’s arrow than I am

Oh and I am left here waiting for the sun

 

I know you feel my in the shadows

Like a bird in rain before the warmth of dawn

No one could be farther from love’s arrow than I am

Oh and I am left here waiting for the sun
