    on clearer days I can see the lights from my bedroom door
    on windy nights I can smell the lake as it drifts to me from the shore
    the traffic lights silently change a thousand times a day
    but I'm still waiting
    yeah I'm still waiting

    if my hand could block the sun
    would we ever wake up?
    If I turned back all these clocks
    would that be time enough?

    I can't remember exactly when this longing began
    but I know it wasn't before the day you touched my hand
    laugh and shout in blissful daze
    and numbers are exchanged
    I'm still waiting
    yeah I'm still waiting


    so put your hands where I can see them
    and shut your mouth
    I know who you are
    in a world void of feeling or heart
    I know that we are the torches in the dark

    let's break this down
    let's make this count
    let's leave this one-horse town
    no better time than now

    the angels dance
    like feathers float
    they're here to see and to be seen
    the clock strikes two
    the music slows
    and each one slowly dons their wings
    once outside
    they all pair off and hand in hand they leave
    but I'm still waiting
    yeah I'm still waiting

    Would We Ever Wake Up?
