All the obstacles in my way now
They're disappearing every day now
I'm getting closer, we're getting closer to home
It won't be long till the summer comes

Are you gonna wait forever
Are you gonna wait forever

Getting out from under my bed now
Gonna say the things I should've said now
Getting closer, getting closer to what's true
Gonna find myself in you

Are you gonna wait forever
Are you gonna wait forever
Are you gonna wait forever
Are you gonna wait forever

There's no one there behind their eyes
They're in the business of beautiful lies
We keep the promise 'cause we don't know how to break it

The furniture you can rearrange
Don't trade your dreams for some small change
Guard the flame, or better, leave it naked

Are you gonna wait forever
Are you gonna wait forever
Are you gonna wait forever
Are you gonna wait forever
How, how, how
Or is it now, now, now
Or is it now
