I have to hold the screams inside me
Wanting to scream for you until my throat is numb
Wishing I knew where you are my friend
And why you had to go
Wishing you could hear me
So you know I still care
Feeling worlds apart
'Cause I'm here and you're there
Still, I know one day I'll hear from you
I know you'll come back to me
So in the meantime, I will sit here
Waiting patiently
