  • Oh my God
    Tell me this won't last forever
    Tell me that I'm not alone
    Tell me this will come together now

    Packed my things up just the other day
    Said my goodbyes to all these things I've sayed
    Out in the driveway we laugh under the moon
    Among my friends for now but I'll be leavin' soon

    Many days from now I'm sure
    I'll be back among your graces
    And with you I won't pretend
    No not at all, Oh

    Crack the morning, up and running quick
    No sleep again last night
    That's the way it is
    Out in the open under broken skies
    I feel every foot step I see everybody's eyes

    Oh and this is summer, in another world
    Far from the driveway and my baby girl
    Soon come the winter and with it quiet nights
    And darker days and darker fights

    Many days from now I'm sure
    I'll be back among your faces
    And with you I won't pretend
    No not at all

    Oh, the theater is burnin over at midnight
    But never like this
    Hot under the fire, the stars are a fallin
    But never like this
    No, I hope you never see this

    Wait, wait for my love
    Don't forget me never let me go
    If you wait, wait for my love
    I'll remember never let you go

    Until I'm fine, fine, fine
    Until I'm fine, fine, fine

    To be back in my room
    I have the same dream every night
    Just me, among my things
    No one else is there, there's no one left to fight, just me

    Among my things
    Many nights from now I know
    I'll be back among your graces
    Until then I'll just pretend
    That I'm not cold

    Oh my god, tell me this won't last forever
    And tell me that I'm not alone
    Tell me this will come together
    Oh my God you know

    Wait, wait for my love
    Don't forget me never let me down
    And just wait, wait for my love
    I'll remember every one of you

    And just wait, wait for my love
    Wait, wait for my love
    Wait for my love

    Until I'm fine, fine, fine
    Until I'm fine, fine, fine
    I'll be fine, fine, fine
    I'll be fine, fine, fine Writer/s: MARC ANDREW ROBERGE, RICHARD JOE ON
