I let the feelings wash over me
As I sit in the silence
Listening, waiting, wishing
 
The days move quickly
There is no time for me to be
Listening, waiting, wishing
 
Even when time slows down
There still is no time for this
Listening, waiting, wishing
 
So I give up on time
I continue to sit in silence
Listening, waiting, wishing
 
This silence starts to expand
It overpowers me as I am
Listening, waiting, wishing
 
I begin to wonder
If what I do is in vain
Listening, waiting, wishing
 
Listening for footsteps
Waiting for you
Wishing you would return
 
Yet here I sit
Listening
Waiting
Wishing
