WAITING
Words and Music by Kurt Scobie

I saw you waiting
I saw you hoping
I saw you holding on
I saw you sitting
As I was walking
Your tears on the sidewalk
And your heart in the air
Asking

Is he still coming?

Then I was thinking
I should be going
I shouldn’t linger long
Then you saw right through me
And I said I’m sorry
I was avoiding
This person that was me
Asking

Is he still coming? Is he still coming for me?
I have been waiting so long
I have been aching inside this heart he’s taking
But it’s still beating
My chest is still bleeding to know
If you love me anymore


I said
Hold me I’m hurting
I have been starving
And I’ve not been sleeping at all
Over and Over
Old letters I’m reading
And here’s where I’m crying
Next to you
Dying to know

Is he still coming?

Stuck between the place where you’ve been waiting, and where I’ve been staying
Aching for the day when all the ways are turned to one and we will
Face your face and end the fakeness end the sickness end the hatred
End the emptiness that eats away at me I’m falling I am
Waiting, I am waiting, praying, hoping this is it and I won’t
Have to hurt again and end the latest greatest thing that’s ever
Happened to me please don’t leave me stranded wondering are you coming
Are you aching for me too? I’m aching. O you know that I am

Are you still coming? Are you still coming for me?
I have been waiting so long
I have been aching inside this heart you’re taking
But it’s still beating
I am still breathing
My chest is still bleeding to hope
That you love me anymore
