i'll wait, you'll see
there's suffering inside of me
but i could even wait forever
being a grand wallflower
it could get old

but as we grow older

you'll see
that i'm just happy to be living

but i can't bear the sight of watching
a living thing fall apart
and i just can't hold back this feeling
i have had from the start

it could get old

but as we grow older
you'll see
that i'm just happy to be living here
and i can't even picture
what your eyes have seen

and my mind can't stop running
not even when i sleep

you'll see no one'll fall apart
within my reach
and within our garden
you'll see my happiness can rise
as well

and if you're killing all the ants
that's fine
i'll take part
cause we could live without a little
pester from the start

but if you're killing more than that
including, or not, yourself
i just can't take part
cause it just grows old
as we grow older

you'll see i'm just happy to
be out of here
you'll see i'm not willing to go
any longer
without you here
