Reasons for Waiting

This song is by Jethro Tull and appears on the album Stand Up (1969) and on the box set The 25th Anniversary Box Set (1993).

What a sight for my eyes to see you in sleep
Could it stop the sunrise hearing you weep?
You're not seen, you're not heard, but I stand by my word
Came a thousand miles just to catch you while you're smiling

What a day for laughter and walking at night
Me following after, your hand holding tight
And the memory stays clear with the song that you hear
If I can but make the words awaken the feeling

What a reason for waiting and dreaming of dreams
So here's hoping you've faith in impossible schemes
That are born in the sigh of the wind blowing by
While the dimming light brings the end to a night of loving
