I was the one who had it all I was the master of my fate I never needed anybody in my life I learned the truth too late I'll never shake away the pain I close my eyes but she's still there I let her steal into my melancholy heart It's more than I can bear
Now I know she'll never leave me Even as she runs away She will still torment me Calm me, hurt me Move me, come what may Wasting in my lonely tower Waiting by an open door I'll fool myself, she'll walk right in And be with me for evermore
I range against the trials of love I curse the fading of the light Though she's already flown so far beyond my reach She's never out of sight
Now I know she'll never leave me Even as she fades from view She will still inspire me Be a part of everything I do Wasting in my lonely tower Waiting by an open door I'll fool myself, she'll walk right in And as the long, long nights begin I'll think of all that might have been Waiting here for evermore

Anonymous Music Lover This song is a love ballad. It’s about a man who was blocked off and opposed to love before he met the girl he fell in love with and changed his mind about a lot of things . But, the man must let the girl go and even thought she’s leaving physically, she still remains in his conscience and inside his heart, which is why the man is willing to wait for his lover no matter how long it takes for her to return.
