Waiting, waiting
For the darkness closing in
For the stars to spin
And the candleís light to waver

Waiting, waiting
For the sleep to overtake
For the day Iíll never wake
And the final sunset seen

Hoping, hoping
That it all will end so soon
That the shining from the moon
Will be the last I see

Hoping, hoping
That Iíll go with grateful grace
And the dark that will replace
Will come so slowly through the night

Wishing, wishing
That it didnít have to be this way
I always have to pay
The final price

Wishing, wishing
That death will welcome me
So I donít have to be seen
As one weak
