Way down in a not-so-distant place
Your ghost is lingering still frames remembering the way we were
Way down see reflections in the well
A distant haunting bell resounding every time I touch you in my mind

Helpless prayers cannot speed the time
Nor heaven change their mind left to our own device we set this bridge alight
One day you may not know it yet
But this you won't forget I was the one who came running back again

[Chorus:]
I'm gonna wait, I'm gonna wait, I'm gonna wait, I wanna
I'm gonna wait, I'm gonna wait, I'm gonna wait, I wanna
I'm gonna wait, I'm gonna wait, I'm gonna wait, I wanna
I'm gonna wait, I'm gonna wait, I'm gonna wait for you
(X2)

My arms are reaching out for you
Each time I think of you the flood gates open and I'm left drowning in
Although it lingers in my sleep
May you return to me Not to possess but to hold you in my keep

(Repeat chorus)

And so the last pictures remain empty until we write the rest
And some may that I'm a fool, a fool for waiting for you

(Repeat chorus)

I'll be a fool, a fool waiting for you
When you come calling, I'll be here still waiting for you
