Voices fade to the background
Where life goes back to what we know
Instead of what we want.
Sit playing with a piece of paper
Wondering if I wanted you badly enough
Perhaps you would just appear.
The curtains fall on a play
Everyone has loved
Nobody wants to move
In case everyone will come out again
Act the play all over.
I sit and wait to hear word
Like the beach waiting for a wave
Or the grass waits for the sun every morning.
Tenderly I’ll wait for you
While my heart beats out of chest
And my soul refuses to leave your side.
