(M. Moore/Hem)

I've seen the shadows casting the spells
Sunlight was flashing on somebody else
When I could have spent this whole night
Watching you
I've not seen the city so down in the rain
Still I can find an excuse to complain
When I could have spent these hours
Watching you
Chorus:
I keep on waiting for someone to save me
From wasting the life that I knew
I open my eyes and...
I could have been watching you
I've seen the sadness that you've always known
I'm falling apart when I'm sleeping alone
And I could have spent this whole night watching you
I keep on waiting for someone to save me
From wasting the life that I knew
I open my eyes and...
I could have been watching you
I've not seen the sketch of myself redefined
I've never acknowledged what I left behind
And I could have spent my whole life watching you
Chorus:
