Northwoods Benediction

from by Brian McGrath

lyrics

I was waiting for something, I was waiting to hear you sing
Waiting for a reason, for a sign, so it seems
Waiting for the future and all good things to come
Fleeting little moments belonging to the young

Everything unspoken, all the day’s we’d yet to be
Anything remotely true to that which made us free
When the hope of youth is born to sad uncertainty
Mourning all the years we’d yet to clearly see

Love it comes and goes
Time it kills us slow
Kills us slow

Still I wait for something, still I wait to hear you sing
Waiting for an answer, still waiting to be free
Hoping for the future and all good things to come
Fleeting little moments belonging to the young

But love it comes and goes
Time it kills us slow

It kills us slow
