I've waited hours for this,
I've made myself so sick 
I wish I'd stayed asleep today,
I never thought this day would end 
I never thought tonight could ever be
This close to me

Just try to see in the dark,
Just try to make it work,
To feel the fear before you're here 
I make the shapes come much too close,
I pull my eyes out,
Hold my breath,
And wait until I shake 

But if I had your faith,
Then I could make it safe and clean 
If only I was sure,
That my head on the door was a dream 

I've waited hours for this,
I've made myself so sick,
I wish I'd stayed asleep today 
I never thought this day would end,
I never thought tonight could ever be
This close to me

But if I had your face,
Then I could make it safe and clean 
If only I was sure,
That my head on the door,
Was a dream
