Sit And Wait

  You stay there lost, alone, and fading
   I can see in your eyes that you're wasting away
   You say that you have somewhere to go
   But with a heavy heart, I tell you to stay
   I hate to see you hurt like this
   The bruises on you break you down whenever you see them
   You try so hard to cover them up but
   It seems you can't let go of the problem
   It's a shadow that follows you wherever you go
   It grows, it grows and engulfs you in the fray
   It's a matter of time, inevitable, might as well sit and wait
   The best we can do is hope it's not that way, that it's not that way
   You are so young, so far away from the truth
   You're looking for a road to recovery, to stitch the open wounds
   You try to get by all by yourself
   But walking down that road, you find out it's no use
   You're trying to find satisfaction in unsatisfactory things
   Trying to find ways out, at least one way out of the vices that hold you close
   You say you're in need of something to numb the pain
   You say you need painkillers, but maybe you're in need of a love overdose
   It's a shadow that follows you wherever you go
   It grows, it grows and engulfs you in the fray
   It's a matter of time, inevitable, might as well sit and wait
   The best we can do is hope it's not that way, that it's not that way
   You have to see, desperation comes everyday looking for someone weak to cover
   It's something that weakens you, then makes you stronger
   You say when you go to bed soon, that it'll be six feet underground
   But with just a little faith, you don't have to wait for love any longer
   Have faith in me, have faith in me, I won't leave you alone tonight
   And after a little while, the scars on your wrists won't mean anything
   I can soothe your heart, if you do your part, and let me in
   And you'll smile and finally mean it, and you'll see your happy ending
   It's a shadow that follows you wherever you go
   It grows, it grows and engulfs you in the fray
   It's a matter of time, inevitable, might as well sit and wait
   The best we can do is hope it's not that way, that it's not that way
