I am the waiting one it seems,
Days grow somber quickly,
Now how the quiet is release,
And I feel so lonely.

How did you think I would feel,
Throw me aside again,
How did you think I would feel.

Won't let you hurt me again, now,
I'm nothing to you, I can see,
Just walk away from me,
I'm torn up but I can't believe,
You sat and watched me bleed.

She knows the waiting one in me,
That I needed to hold you,
Still I can smell her, hear her breathe,
Feel her body beside me,

How long I've waited,
Waited for you,
To come back to hold me,
What should I, what should I,
What should I do,
When I feel so lonely.

How could you do this to me,
Betrayed by my closest friend,
How could you do this to me.

Won't let you hurt me again, now,
I'm nothing to you, I can see,
Just walk away from me,
I'm torn up but I can't believe,
You sat and watched me bleed.

What should I,
What should I do,
Well how long I have waited,
What can I,
What can I do,
When I feel so lonely.

How did you think I would feel,
Threw me aside again,
How did you think I would feel.

Won't let you hurt me again, now,
I'm nothing to you, I can see,
Just walk away from me,
I'm torn up but I can't believe,
You sat and watched me bleed.

How could you do this to me,
Betrayed by my closest friend,
How could you do this to me,
I won't let you hurt me again.

I am the waiting one it seems.

    The main character has been heart broken by someone he deeply cares for. Throughout the song he is coming to realize that he really doesn't mean anything to her, and he is slowly getting over her. He still longs for her affection, but he knows it will never come. He has waited a very long time for her to change, but he knows she wont. He misses there memories. But he now knows that she is no good for him. He is giving up on her. Walking away after many heart breaks.

    I can relate to this song very much. It is exactly what every says, its about being betrayed by a loved one. A friend or bf/gf to be more clear. My gf who I loved with all my heart left me for another. She lied to me about being with someone else and when I did find out, she simply tossed me to the side. I told myself that maybe she would come back to me one day, but in my heart I know she never will. Still I am the waiting one, waiting for her to come back to me one day.

    The way I can relate to this song is how I was waiting for the girl who I really fell for. We both had feelings for each other. Everytime I got close to her she pushed me away, leaving me to wait for her. In the end I found out that she has been dating another man. Leaving me to wait for her. I did and every time it was the same. Get close and then get betrayed. The only way was to let things go.

    This song has a good and painful meaning to me, cause I finally found a girl who I loved to the core of my soul, I was happy when I was around her and spoke with her, but now a so called friend of my stole her from me, he knew how much I loved her, but still he back stabbed me. And now I'm have lost my reason to be happy again, my hearth has been shattered.

    What this song means to me is that two of my closest friends betrade me. One of their names were cielo ever since she became friends with her x-bff again she has been acting like. That girl was the only person in the world by the way that girls name was ariana. So ariana wasnt my friend any more because cielo was not. That is what this song means to me.
