You know that someone is waiting for you,
pining outside -
sitting on his hands and watching the time.

Well I know perfect moments are hard to find,
but ten years is a long time
to wait for one to happen by
and they drag on and on...

You know that someone is waiting for you,
pining outside -
and when he comes what will you do?

Well I know you can't just give over,
you can't just give in,
and winning isn't everything.
And I know
perfect moments are hard to find,
but ten years is a long time
and never's just a moment away.

You know that someone is waiting for you
on the outside
and out of sight is where he'll stay
and I know.
