What am I waiting for, and why am I waiting for it?
Who’s supposed to have come, and why aren’t they here yet?

What am I waiting for, and why am I waiting for it?

Who’s supposed to have come, and why aren’t they here yet?

 

What is this hollow space, and why has it become so?

Who else should have been here, and why don’t I know?

 

What have I forgotten, and why can’t I remember it?

How come I feel so cold when the air is stuffed with heat?

 

Why so many people teeming all about?

What am I still missing? What am I without?

 

They said I need to rest and wake up at my best

They said I was a case with such a lonesome face

They said I’m better now, but I just can’t see how

They said I need to rest, and think a little less

 

What was here before, and why is it no more?

Why can’t I recall the reasons for this all?

 

What’s supposed to be, and why can I not see?

 

Who has been and gone, and left me here alone?
