Why did you wait so long?
Lyrics
Why did you wait?
© 2007 Bruce Mills (ASCAP)

Why did you wait so long?
CODA: Why did you wait so long?
Why did you wait so long?
To tell me you love me

Just like a silent witness
Always just standing at my door
You knew I'd never answer
With nobody knocking - no invitation

Why did you wait so long?
Were you indifferent? Was I too distant?
Why did you wait so long?
To say that you cared for me
To say you prayed for me
To say you stayed for me
To say you needed me -
That you believed in me -
Deep down - deep down - deep down
Deep down in your soul

What did you do - with all the love you were lending?
Or were you saving it - up for a rainy day?
When all this time you could have been spending -
All your love on me - oh - you'd feel better -
And I'd feel better - oh we'd be better
No, not perfect -
Deep down - deep down - deep down - deep down in the soul

Why did you always hide from me?
Oh, baby, what was the secret - you kept inside?
Two steps behind - but never beside me
Just far enough away - that I could never see - you
Didn't you know I could have taken you?
Anywhere you wanted to go - oh baby -
Out of the desert - I would rescue you
Up on the mountain - I would shelter you
Deep down in the valley - I would comfort you
Baby I would keep you safe - deep down in my heart
But now - no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no!

Why did you always follow?
Why were you just like my shadow?
Did you think all your sorrow?
Would end tomorrow

Why did you wait so long?
Was I indifferent - were you right - all along?
Why did you wait so long?
To tell me you love me

Didn't you know I could have taken you?
Anywhere you wanted to go - oh baby -
Out of the desert - I would rescue you
Up on the mountain - I would shelter you
Deep down in the valley - I would comfort you
Baby I would keep you safe forever in my heart
But now, oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no!

Just like a silent witness
Always just standing at my door - and waiting
You know I'll never answer
With no one knocking - no invitation
Nobody talking - no conversation
You were just walking - you were just walking - walking - walking - walking away ...
