I am waiting for nothing but morning
I don't care if you never return
though you left me without any warning
I don't mind, and you have much to learn
if you think that I care where you're going
or wonder what keeps you so late
I am much better off never knowing
than to stay and do nothing but wait

I am waiting for nothing but daybreak
I haven't a thought left to spare
for you, and I've no need to partake
in this mourning and guilt and dispair
If you wanted my love or my sorrow
than you shouldn't have left me alone
I've no memories to lend or to borrow
and what pain you feel now is your own

I am waiting for nothing but sunrise
I don't worry how I'll make it through
though my choices be foolish and unwise
I don't need you to know what to do
with my moments, my days and my hours
For I know how you would have me waste
the precious few thoughts and the powers
that our memories might have erased

I am waiting for nothing but dawn
when a bloody light covers the sky
when the world looks unhappy and drawn
like it spent the night waiting to die
I remember the smile you gave me
on the day we might have said goodbye
And I know that you're not going to save me
I just wish I could understand why

I am waiting for nothing but morning
Will this be the day you return?
When you left me without any warning
I saw just how much I had to learn
Where are you, and where are you going?
And why have you been gone so late?
Am I much better off never knowing?
Must I stay and do nothing but wait?
