'Til Kingdom Come

  • Steal my heart and hold my tongue
    I feel my time, my time has come
    Let me in, unlock the door
    I've never felt this way before

    And the wheels just keep on turning
    The drummer begins to drum
    I don't know which way I'm going
    I don't know which way I've come

    Hold my head inside your hands
    I need someone who understands
    I need someone, someone who hears
    For you, I've waited all these years

    For you I'd wait 'til kingdom come
    Until my day, my day is done
    And say you'll come and set me free
    Just say you'll wait, you'll wait for me

    In your tears and in your blood
    In your fire and in your flood
    I hear you laugh, I heard you sing
    I wouldn't change a single thing

    And the wheels just keep on turning
    The drummers begin to drum
    I don't know which way I'm going
    I don't know what I'll become

    For you I'd wait 'til kingdom come
    Until my days, my days are done
    And say you'll come and set me free
    Just say you'll wait, you'll wait for me

    Just say you'll wait, you'll wait for me
    Just say you'll wait, you'll wait for me
