We've waited for you

Existing here, in the darkness of the sunlight.
Taking in the wicked sky, until the dark of night.
The door cracks open, there is no sun shining through.
If I can't understand me, then I can't understand you.

What I thought I've felt, what I thought I've known.
Feeling betrayed and hollow because I stand alone.
If the sky that I look upon, should crumble and fall.
I'll be here waiting for you, standing proud and tall.

Even as twisted thoughts spin around my head.
There won't be a single tear, that you'll see me shed.
As I watch all the hills crumble down to the sea.
I cradling the broken glass, that has become me.

Looking at the pieces, full of my life and my disdain.
All glass breaks, maybe that's why its called a window pane.
As the world and all I know crumbles around my feet.
I should have known better, that one day we'd never meet.
