As I Lay Waiting

March 29, 2010
As I lay waiting
standing in the rain
for this green eyed girl
that brought me so much pain
I look towards the sea
towards the horizon
looking for some sign
of love that was lost
love that was lost
in the sea of hatred
in the sea of death
no sweet melodies
come to me anymore
as I wait
on this distant shore
so far away
from everyone else
so far away
so far away

As I lay waiting
under this dead shower tree
atop the deep green grass
I lay in wait
for my love to come
but time has past
and no one has come
to relieve me of my wait
for this green eyed girl
that showed me to love
that showed me to hate
that showed me everything
except for what fate
had in store
for all of us

As I lay crying
beneath this golden shower tree
the rain is pounding
on my heart and on me
my soul is ripped in two
the same with my heart
my lost love
my lost inspiration
lay beneath this tree
to teach me a lesson

As I look out
to a new horizon
without my love
without my inspiration
I wander aimlessly
until I am lost
I find my new self
in this city beneath the waves
I find my new self
my dead inspiration
my dead love
beneath blue skies
beneath waves where water turns black
I find what I've been waiting for
I find her once more

As I lay no longer waiting
I look towards life
with greater understanding
I learned from my trip
and I soaked it all in
here in this city beneath the waves
I come to wonder where life begins
and I come to hope that it never ends
