​The Waiting

This song is by Sarah McLachlan.

As I watched in the shiftless sky I'm waiting
The clouds begin to gather for the coming storm
I saw you not for who you are unsheltered and tainted
By the bitter winds that blew you away
But i
Like a lonely child who found a friend
Oh I wanted to trust you
'Cause you were all I had
So I thought and so it seemed
You walked away with my heart
It hung heavy on your sleeve
You drained the very part of me
That hides my deepest fears
I was lost inside myself
You dragged me out into the night
Into the cold
I wondered
What you meant when you said
Don't be afraid
I won't let anything harm you
I won't let anything touch you
So where do I go now that there's nowhere left to turn to
And what do I do now that there's no one left to talk to
I'm building these walls around me no one's going to break through
So with nothing left to feel I close my eyes and close my heart
I watched in the shiftless sky I'm waiting
As the clouds begin to gather for the coming storm
