I've been walking in the shadows for so long
That I forgot the sun can shine
I've turned away from everyone and everything
That wanted to be mine

Somehow I always shot my eyes and heart
To everything that I could share
Now I'm standing still and I'm wondering
Just how long have you been there

And every path I've taken I have turned around
And quickly closed the door
It seems as though I knew
If I ever stop to feel, I want more

I kept a steady run so my eyes could never focus anywhere
Now I'm standing still and I'm wondering
Just how long have you been there

How long have you been standing there
Protecting me from love that shouldn't be?
Knowing all alone that I could realize
That you were meant for me

Now I've got to mend every broken fence
And bridge that I have burned
I've got to clear away the cobwebs in my heart
So I can start to learn

For I realize that you've been waiting
Just to teach me how to care
Now I'm standing still and I'm wondering
Just how long have you been there

And now I'm standing still and I'm wondering
Just how long have you been there
