I Am (The Waiting)

Walking out alone The night fits like a stone inside a boot heel Hot and cold winds blow And no oneís here to know the way I feel The corner I once knew brings me in to view again So I could stay out late, find new bones to break But then Iíd be dragging home admitting I am because You are I am I recognize clearly I see I am because You are I am I am in You and You are in me Spent too many days devising many ways trying to escape you Played too many roles Dug too many holes just big enough to fall in to And I could linger here, hoping to disappear in excuses Come morningís shining face Iíd be crawling to the place I call home Where first you cut me loose and The places that Iíve carried You, I wouldnít take a dog Stop and calmly think of that Tear this church down to itís cornerstone And build it up again, build me up again.
