Terri Hendrix — Long Time Coming lyrics

Tell me you need me
And I will understand
Because I've seen the desert drinking
From the rains open hand
Tell me you want me
And I will lay me down
We can melt like snow in the summer
And flow underground
Just don't tell me that you love me
Because I'll believe it like an answer to my prayers
And I've been waiting for these words
On the thinnest of air
Its been a long time coming
Its been a long time coming
I tell you I'm frightened
A crash of lightning in the air
Now you're changing like the weather
And I'm caught unprepared
You see I've been angry
I've been all dammed up inside
And when the walls come down
I'm gonna drown with the tide
Nothing can save me this time
Then you tell me that you love me
And I believe it like an answer to my prayers
Because I've been waiting for these words
On the thinnest of air
I've been dreaming of this moment so long
I almost don't care
