lyrics

I’m waiting in between what is seen
What is coming, what is here and what has been
I’m waiting in between what is done,
what is finished, what is here and yet to come

But while I waited down here for more
You were coming in quietly backdoor
You did not come in like a fire, like a storm or like a shark
You were just standing by a lamppost like an angel in the dark

I’m waiting in between what I fear, what I long for what I love and what is here
I’m waiting in between what I lost, what I hoped for what I took and what it cost

I’m waiting for this heart to change
For a bigger wind to blow and rearrange

But while I waited down here for more
You were coming in quietly backdoor
You did not come in like a fire, like a storm or like a shark
You were just standing by a lamppost, an angel in the dark
You were the empty handed waiting for a word or for a score
You were a million stricken voices lying naked on the floor
