As we walk together through the autumn, nearing winter
Through the dying leaves and trees we call our home and native land
You say you don't believe a thing I say, I say you don't believe a thing
You say you can't believe how I don't understand

But I know, you will be waiting
Oh I know, you will be waiting
Oh I know, you will be waiting
Waiting there for me

You say you cannot live with me, you need your own identity
And now we air our laundry on national TV
And so you hate my arrogance, my smothering, and sitting on the fence
But I'm afraid of the hard permanence of letting you go free

But I know, you will be waiting
Oh I know, you will be waiting
Oh I know, you will be waiting
Waiting there for me

I'm so sick of fighting and that effigy you're lighting
Looks an awful lot like someone whose name I just can't quite place
And though you say it's not supposed to be me or an entity
Still through the flames and smoke I see, I recognize that face

But I know, you will be waiting
Oh I know, you will be waiting
Oh I know, you will be waiting
Waiting there for me

You were someone who would always tell me
Things I don't know, tell me where to go, there I'll always go
Always go there whether or not you're waiting
Well, I don't care if you'll be waiting

But, please say that you will be waiting there for me
Don't you ever leave me, don't leave
