While I Wait for You

Far enough so I can’t see 

I leave open every part of me

Will I ever know how safety feels?

Only God knows my desire for something real

 

I will keep swimming to shore

Under the waves that try to conqueror me

 

So I’ll wait as long as I have to, to feel you 

No, I won't let anyone else but you rescue me

I can’t give them what’s meant for you

Even if I have to watch everyone else first 

And even if it hurts

 

Under the stars, I lay tonight, and think of you  

Where their love fades, mine will last

You’ve fought many wars looking for me 

Others will try, but I won't let them hold me down 

 

I keep swimming to shore 

Under the waves that try to conqueror me 

 

So I’ll wait as long as I have to, to feel you

No, I won't let anyone else but you rescue me

I can’t give them what’s meant for you

Even if I have to watch everyone else first 

And even if it hurts

 

In time I’ll be better 

Maybe I’ll swim faster

When the waves come for me

In time I’ll be better 

I will swim faster

And you’ll set me free

 

So I’ll wait as long as I have to feel you 

No, I won't let anyone else but you rescue me

I can’t give them what’s meant for you

Even if I have to watch everyone else first 

And even if it hurts
