LYRICS: Verse 1 I will wait like nothing I have ever waited for I will catch your tears from falling Until from my hands they fall Verse 2 You can leave me abandoned Like the year if you are begging (not sure of this line) Like the rest I have been branded Far beneath the skin So far beneath the skin Chorus You shall be... You shall be.... You shall be..... Forgiven.... You shall be... You shall be.... You shall be..... Forgiven.... Verse 3 Here I have been waiting While the time has come and gone I tried singing to you But you turned my words to stone Verse 4 Here I have been waiting It seems for quite a while Changed on my reflections But inside I'm still just a child But inside I'm still just a child CHORUS SLIDE GUITAR SOLO W/WAH WAH Verse 5 These eyes weren't made for crying This love wasn't made to waste These arms weren't made for battle But to share your warm embrace But to share in your embrace CHORUS x 2 -I dont know if that is exactly were it ends but it was cut off at that point on th radio and I transcribed this from the tape of the radio show. -Jai Mitchell (Self Proclaimed to be arguably the biggest Ben Harper fan on earth) PROVE ME WRONG!!!!
