The Wait

The wait is all we know & all that we breathe.
Anticipation’s building as the countdown nears zero.
In the back of our minds we’re already so close.
But in reality we’re not face not face & I feel so out of place.
I apologize for all the places that I can’t be right now.
The closer you get, the more it hurts.
With you this is not like the usual, far from it.
I love you & no I’m not confused.
I’ve made my move, when will you make yours?

All this running around has got me winded.
Always falling for someone that can’t be there.
It’s not fair to want this for so long & to never know this as more than a passing dream.
Do you hear what I’m saying?
It was never supposed be more than a moment, but somehow the years caught up with us.
Always on the move, we take what we can get.
Stealing away for hours like it was our last day.
I never know which way we’ll go, but I have faith that we’ll be together.
I know it sounds crazy.

Just one thing stays the same.
Somewhere along this long, winding road we’ll cross paths, like we always do.
Destiny says that it’s bound to happen eventually.
Time tells me to hurry up & make it count.
Life let’s me know that love is for the living.
So what are we living for?
Don’t stop coming my way, I’ll meet you half way.
The time has come to give in or move on.
There’s a time for everything & a place for everyone worth losing sleep over.
Everything comes together when you breathe easy & just let it be.
We’re just counting the days on our fingertips.
