Could someone tell me when the light is green?
Or hold me quick before my tears are seen?
And I would tell you but I don’t think
you’ll wanna hear these words I’m ‘bout to sing—oh!

Unfold those arms, babe, rest that stare.
Oh, my love is already there.
Oh, one day, somehow,
I’ll take a vow.
You’ll calm me down,
won’t let me drown.
I’m waiting for that time with you.

So watch me waiting in the dark deep,
and staring silently at my feet.
I love you more than what I think.

A thousand times the weight I bear, unseen.

Unfold those arms, babe, rest that stare.
Oh, my love is already there.
Oh, one day, somehow,
I’ll take a vow.

You’ll calm me down,
won’t let me drown.
I’m waiting for that time with you.

Take a long look
and I’ll know if
you would change your mind—oh,
and I wouldn’t be so inclined to change mine.

Oh, one day, somehow,
I’ll take a vow.
You’ll calm me down,
won’t let me drown.

I’m waiting for that time with you.
