Verse 1

This heart of mine is pounding in my chest,

Like a spirit searching for peace and rest.

Until you're here, I'll keep it safe,

Locked away in the deepest grave

That I can dig up in the hole

He has made in my fragile soul.

Chorus

Until you're here,

There will be tears

That blur the beauty of this good old world from my eyes.

Until you're here,

There will be fears

That make me see everyone as traitors in disguise.

And I'll wait for the sinister skies to clear,

Until you're here,

Until you're here.

Verse 2

This heart of mine has lost its wilful faith,

Like a wounded soldier waiting for death.

Until you're here, I'll hide it in

A dark place that no light has seen,

Away from thieves with charming smiles,

Or monsters straight from the X-files.

Chorus

Until you're here,

There will be tears

That blur the beauty of this good old world from my eyes.

Until you're here,

There will be fears

That make me see everyone as traitors in disguise.

And I'll wait for the sinister skies to clear,

Until you're here,

Until you're here.

Bridge

What's taking you so long?

Do you need a map soaked in my loneliness?

See my star in Hong Kong?

Follow it until it leads you to my face,

Follow it until you're here.

Chorus

Until you're here,

There will be tears

That blur the beauty of this good old world from my eyes.

Until you're here,

There will be fears

That make me see everyone as traitors in disguise.

And I'll wait for the sinister skies to clear,

Until you're here,

Until you're here.
