From the recording Singles

A wistful, heavily melodic piece about longing.... wanting, needing to be held and told everything is going to be ok. Piano and strings meld with heavy drums and guitar (and some thick, delicious harmonies) in a style reminiscent of Queen or Coldplay. 

Lyrics

When my back is broken and I feel like I am choking / I might go back to smoking ‘cause I need a crutch for coping / My morals get caught napping while my enemies are clapping / My wings keep right on flapping but I can’t get off the ground / And I am down

Waiting for you / Waiting for you
I’m lost and alone and my heart’s in pieces
Waiting for you / Waiting for you
To rest me in your tender arms

No use in pretending that my standards are not bending / The stalling’s never-ending for the good I’ve been intending / The progress I’m erasing with the pleasures I’ve been chasing / Have only been encasing me in loneliness and shame / And I am down

My door is drafty and my enemy is crafty And he’s working his way inside
My shaky legs can’t stand their ground I’m slipping
