“Waiting Out the Wanting”
Nitanee Paris Lawson
Malibu, California

I sigh and hug my pillow
Watching shadows on the wall
And although I’ll never answer
I keep waiting for your call

I wonder if you feel it
And are you awake as well
Do you feel you’re in the middle
Between a heaven and a hell

You’re all I ever think of
But I know it isn’t right
So I’m waiting out the wanting
In the middle of the night
Waiting out the wanting
Tears and trying to forget
But these memories are haunting
And my pillow’s getting wet

Seeing you awakened
A new pathway to my soul
Now my heart is torn in half
At the thought of being whole

You’re all I ever think of
But I know it isn’t right
So I’m waiting out the wanting
In the middle of the night
Waiting out the wanting
Tears and trying to forget
These memories are haunting
And my pillow’s getting wet

Still if you came to me now
I couldn’t turn away
Some mistakes are meant to happen
And some rules are made to break

You’re all I ever think of
But I know it isn’t right
So I’m waiting out the wanting
In the middle of the night
Waiting out the wanting
Tears and trying to forget
These memories are haunting
And my pillow’s getting wet
