Lyric Waiting For Mine

take me down to the river s edge
don t let me fall in
let me into your circle of life
while I m waiting for mine to begin

but the river runs wide and so deep
I can see myself drown
I m awake but my conscience is asleep
as the wind drags me down

my mind s eye would always be blind
heading down for the cliffs
I would not feel the need to be saved from the flight
hour of truth reality sinks in hello
I ve been bound behind a closed door
never have been denied
now I m sentenced to life never knowing what for
then the words I never thought I d hear
now all I want to know is
what the hell just happened here

here I stand at the river s edge
dripping wet from the fall
the tide is high and the ferry s delayed
to take me back home

but the river still runs to the sea
drifting my wishes away
tomorrow is pain
and in time you will hear my say
