I survive the cold on your promises
Frozen in a life so temporary
Trapped in the darkness of an endless night
Living for the day when you'll be mine
You promised
The door would open, open again
You promised
I would hold you once again
And every time the phone rings I run just to check
But it's never been you and I'm starting to suspect

That I wait in vain
Oh I wait in vain
Oh I wait in vain

It's just one small step and I'm out of the shadow
But I can't escape your indifference
I'm gripped by indecision and paralyzed by pride
Hesitating till the day you'll be by my side
You promised
I would feel your soft kiss again
You promised
I would hear you whisper again
And every day I'm standing, just standing at your door
I can't even find the strength to hate you anymore

Wait in vain
Oh I wait in vain
Don't make me wait in vain
No no

You promised the door would open again
You promised I would hold you, hold you again
And in the crowd I always think I see you up ahead
When I call out your name it's someone else instead

Wait in vain
Oh I wait in vain
Oh I wait in vain

Please don't make me wait in vain
Oh I wait in vain
Wait in vain
