Do you see the world in different colors?
Do you see the world in black and gray?
Alone in your thoughts, how many others
Have stood where you stand, where you stand today?
Have stood where you stand, but oh can you

Wait for me now
And take off this crown
To break all these vows
Don't you know?

Wait for me now
Air's running out
Wait for me, wait for me
Wait for me, wait for me now

A promise of safe return I deliver
But the ocean is wider than I first guessed
With roads disappeared, I follow the rivers
But somehow get in over my head
So a deep breath I'll take in.

Wait for me now
And take off this crown
To break all these vows
Don't you know?

Wait for me now
Air's running out
Wait for me, wait for me
Wait for me, wait for me now

A lost dream of what could have been
A house on fire, a tangled web
The key turns, to find the locks have changed
In time to hear the backdoor slam
A sound that to this day I can't forget
The colors drain to black and gray

Wait for me now
And take off this crown
To break all these vows
Don't you know?

Wait for me now
Air's running out
Wait for me, wait for me
Wait for me, wait for me now

    This isn't my meaning of the song but you def have the verse "a promise of setting free of the lever" wrong its actually "a promise of safe return i delivered"
