Since you've gone
Nothing seems to fit no more
Nothing's as it was before
Everyday
Is a battle that I just can't win
I know I won't see you again
But I keep waiting for the night
I close my eyes and hope you'll find me sleeping
Coz in my dreams
We can spend a little time just talking
In my dreams
We're side by side just walking
Oh, I think of the times we used to know
The places we used to go
Are still there
In my dreams
On the front of crossbar of your bike
We can go anyplace, anywhere you like
In my dreams
And as hard as it seems
Till then I'll wait
To see you again
In my dreams
Don't you wake me up
I don't wanna go nowhere

I've been waiting for a zillion years
You're gone too soon
I know I'll never get the chance
To say the things I never said
But I keep waiting for the night
I close my eyes and hope you'll find me sleeping
Coz in my dreams
We can spend a little time together
In my dreams
We're side by side just walking
Oh by the pier that we used to know
The places we used to go
Are all still there
In my dreams
On the front of crossbar of your bike
We can go anyplace, anywhere you like
In my dreams
And some place when I feel we'll fade away
Till then I'll wait
To see you again
In my dreams
Coz I'll wait, I'll wait
To see you again
In my dreams
I'll see you again
In my dreams

    I haven’t felt this awake in years
    To busy drying my tears
    To feel the sun was shining on my skin
    Locked up in my own cage
    True love with a bitter rage
    Couldn’t see the prison I was in
    I walked across the line alone
    To find the truth I'd never, ever known
    The truth has been here all this time
    The only one that couldn’t see is me

    And I...been
    waiting for this awakening for so long
    so long
    And I get a little light inside
    And I have ...
    holding up for just one thing
    And it’s your love
    Your love, makes everything feel alright
    I was slowly slowly dying
    slowly dying
    It’s like the first day of my life

    Flowed through me like summer breeze
    Put my twisted mind at ease
    All the troubles of the world just drift away
    Jump out like a shooting star
    Make a wish to be where you are
    Underneath your claw is where I'll stay
    The only place I want to be
    Is right with you next to me

    An I...have
    waited for this for this awakening for so long
    for so long
    And I get a little light inside
    And I ... here holding out for just one thing
    And it’s your love
    Makes everything feel alright
    I was slowly, slowly dying
    slowly dying
    It’s like the first day of my life

    Instrumental...
    I ...I ...I ...
    Been waiting here for so long
    so long, so long, so long
    And I want to cross that line alone
    To find the truth that I’ve never ever known
    The tape has been here all this time
    The only one that couldn’t see was me

    And I...been waiting for this awakening for so long
    for so long
    And I get a little light inside
    And I am holding out for just one thing
    And it’s your love...
    It makes everything feel alright
    I said I
    I...I...I...
    been waiting for so long, so long so long
    I...I...I... been waiting here for so long
