Still Waiting

  • Buried in the rubble there's a boy in trouble
    Reaching for a piece of the sky

    Clawing at the wreckage, sending out a message
    Dying to get back to the light

    Lost in time
    Long forgotten, hung forever
    On the line
    Still waiting behind

    Still waiting
    Forever left to wonder why
    Still waiting
    In truth I know that really I'm
    Still out there
    Still waiting
    A wandering ghost for evermore
    Still out there
    Still waiting
    I feel like I've been here before

    I had never reckoned ever coming second
    Stretching to get over the line

    But I'm all in pieces, sick as all my secrets
    Still now how they weigh on my mind

    Lost in time
    Long forgotten, hung forever
    On the line
    Still waiting behind

    Still waiting
    Forever left to wonder why
    Still waiting
    In truth I know that really I'm
    Still out there
    Still waiting
    A wandering ghost for evermore
    Still out there
    Still waiting
    I feel like I've been here before

    Phantoms in the shadows howl
    To devils on the edge of town
    Passing through the city walls
    Dancing down the hallowed halls
    Vultures in the inky haze
    Circle where my body lays
    I've got to get a message out
    Pull me from the wreckage now

    Still waiting
    Forever left to wonder why
    Still waiting
    In truth I know that really I'm
    Still out there
    Still waiting
    A wandering ghost for evermore
    Still out there
    Still waiting
    I feel like I've been here before Writer/s: Thomas Oliver Chaplin, Dan Heath
