Waiting For You

It's a long run but it's worth the fight.
While your lungs give in, and you don't feel right.
Someone else waits in the cold of night.
Someone is waiting for you.

Though you try so hard, nothing ever works out.
And your mind fills up with meaningless doubt.
Someone else knows what it's all about.
Someone is waiting for you.

If everything was perfect, you'd never change. You'd live a life that never got strange. The bad wouldn't count, as it wouldn't exist. But perfect's not perfect if it's all that there is.

A smile's not a smile if you've never frowned.
And you can't get up if you never fall down.
Someone will pick you up off the ground.
Someone is waiting for you.

If you've never lost, you can't tell when you win.
And you can't know forgiveness if you never sin.
Someone will be there to lift up your chin.
Someone is waiting for you.

If everything was perfect, you'd never change. You'd live a life that never got strange. The bad wouldn't count, as it wouldn't exist. But perfect's not perfect if it's all that there is.

If it doesn't work out, it was not meant to be.
And you can't meet the right one till the wrong one's set free.
Someone will come to answer your plea.
Someone is waiting for you.

You can't say you hate something you've never done.
If you've never been bored, you can never have fun.
Someone will show you that they are the one.
The one who's been waiting for you.
