WAITING UP FOR YOU

12 years old, I stood with my eyes to the sun
I watched all your ways and learned from when I was but young
My feet in your footprints I went where you would go
I never realized this dirt would turn to snow…

The winds are strong and the weather’s colder
You said you’d come back when I am older
But time has passed and I am almost through!
I’m done waiting up for you.

At 23, my hope was all that I had
No love from my mother and an absentee man for a dad
I wait for my brother to return home from this war
but no luck for this time my heart is completely torn

The winds are strong and the weather’s colder
You said you’d come back when I am older
But time has passed and I am almost through!
You said that you’d come back when it was over
I needed you here so much closer
But time has passed and I am almost through
I’m done waiting up for you
