A Lifetime Waiting:
By Robin Nederlof.
Eyes like ocean blue.
A body beyond my wildest dream.
The first time I saw you.
I told myself, I had never seen.
Butterflies inside of me.
You just aren't from this planet.
How come you are all I see.
While you are so far out of my league, damn it!
Even if I would be surrounded.
By thousands of women who look so pretty.
I would still pick you out of it.
Because you are the only one I see.
Rejected again and again.
I guess I was never in your plan.
For another man you fell.
And turned my life into a hell.
He had everything I didn't have.
A pretty face and a great voice.
My head kept on repeating his laugh.
It made me believe he was the right choice.
But I never gave up on you.
As tears turned into a waterfall.
And my feelings were so blue.
Hoping to be awakened by your call.
Being realistic is the hardest thing.
I just can't accept we don't have that fling.
And why is a word I said so many times.
Why is the word that comes up in all my lines.
Why wait for a woman who rejected me so much?
Why wait for a women who I can't even touch?
Why throw your life away for one with a bit of flair?
Why for someone who doesn't even care?
Seconds keep ticking away
24 hours are still making a day
365 of those make a year.
But after all the waiting, you're still not here.
The Hourglass of my life flows on.
How much time left? It only shows.
All those years of waiting, they are gone.
I am not the man you chose.
All the time I have wasted.
Why did I wait for you?
All those pictures I pasted.
In an album that helped me through.
On those pictures we were young.
I was in love, you were my dream.
But you thought it was wrong.
And declared my love as just a scene.
Remember, I even wrote you that song.
And entitled it : why do you think I am wrong?
I did my very best and it only made you angry at me.
Why didn't I stop? Why couldn't I see?
And now I am a man who is old and grey.
Who wishes he could see you once more, just to say.
That his feelings still haven't gone away.
And that he will continue the path his lonely way.
Maybe you will follow me there someday.
And wrap your hands around mine.
Your lips will move for me and say.
Those feelings weren't wrong but fine.
The lonely way then wouldn't be so lonely.
But it will be until that day arrives.
My life will flow away from me.
As I walk on thinking about our lives.
Time isn't on my side, the hourglass still flows.
It seems there are only a few drops of sand.
I need you to know that you will always be the one I chose.
Forever and beyond, even at my life's end...
