until you come back, i am doomed
to lie in waitful swoon,
my heart as a sputtering engine
worn down by daytime indecision
and, unknowing of your present
position, i thus know naught of mine.

oh where did you go?
oh where did you go?
oh, of the existence of God i once did know,
but my love, she keeps me waiting;
the daylight, it is fading.

was it that evil man who would that
you wilt as a rose in a desert garden,
that chose to hide you from my view?
oh, if that is so what can i do?
if he knew that my heart could burst,
he'd let you come to my doorstep first...

my love, she keeps me waiting;
her singing voice is fading.

i sit at your altar but you are not there;
i would drink your sweat and taste your hair,
but you still aren't there.
what goddess abandons her altar?
my heart is beginning to falter.

my love, she keeps me waiting;
sweet love, my faith is fading.
