wondering, wanting, waiting
watching the darkness settle in
to this tender heart that’s breaking

the choice that wasn’t mine to choose
knowing what was right
but not willing to lose

i close my eyes to see
the chance to escape
these webs that chain me

the light is slipping
and fading so fast
i hear the echoes shout from my past

the darkness, the sweet darkness
has found its way
soothing the pain from this twisted mess

take me away, and keep me with you
i am letting it all go
to find the peace i once knew

once again, i am breathing
looking for the way
wondering, wanting, and waiting
