Watching and waiting
For a friend to play with
Why have I been alone so long
Mole he is burrowing his way to the sunlight
He knows there's some there so strong

Cos here there's lot of room for doing
The thing you've always been denied
Look and gather all you want to
There's no one here to stop you trying

Soon you will see me
Cos I'll be all around you
But where I come from I can't tell
But don't be alarmed by my fields and my forests
They're here for only you to share

Cos here there's lot of room for doing
The things you've always been denied
So look and gather all you want to
There's no one here to stop you trying

Watching and waiting
For someone to understand me
I hope it won't be very long

    It's self explanatory. It's about loneliness. We have to reach out and ask for connection. Field and forests i think could be referring to innermost secrets... "they're here for only you to share.. " wide open fields being one's happy thoughts, hopes and dreams... Forests being one's darker places... Fears and sadness. It's about wanting to connect and having a very hard time feeling connected.
