Waiting (feat. Caroline Campbell)

about

“Life doesn’t always happen at the pace you wish for it to. There are days, weeks and even months or years, when we need to be able to surrender to the situation and wait it out. But there are plenty other times when one must realize that waiting can also be a form of cowardice, or – more compassionately put – fear. We wait when we are afraid of change. We wait because we hope the circumstances will change, or our partner will. We wait to move on, break up, change jobs or career paths, have children etc. We wait. And yet, if there is another thing I have learned in the recent years is: time only passes faster and faster every year, as we grow older. Time flies, as the old cliché would say; and if you wait too long, it runs out on you. We may be waiting, but the world is not.

When Jonathan sent me the initial rough track for Waiting, I knew we had something special. He wrote a violin solo which was supposed to be towards the end of the song, and it felt really good to me, but I wanted it to be special[…]”

lyrics

Hmmm...
Hmmm...

I have waited for so long
I have tried to carry on
but I know I’m getting weak
and it’s time for me to speak

Though I’ve dreamed of you as home
cold has seeped into my bones
So I shiver and I shake
And I wish I’d never wake

Cause I know that you will never stay
You will go when winter calls my name

Waiting, I’ve been waiting
Can you hear me, can you see me
Cause I’m breaking, I’ve been breaking
Are you with me, are you near me, oh

I am brittle made of glass
when you hold me in your arms
but I used to be so strong
made from metal, built from stone

Don’t deny me cause I’m cursed
Give me water for my thirst
I will die of summer drought
if your walls should keep me out

And I know that you will never stay
You will go when winter calls my name

Waiting, I’ve been waiting
Can you hear me, can you see me
Cause I’m breaking, I’ve been breaking
Are you with me, are you near me

Hmmm...
Hmmm...
