lyrics

This is a song for all the wasted hours spent pining after someone, and all the wasted flowers, you wanted just to give them out, and all the wasted words, tryin to prove they were good for you – it's not wasted breath... Cause all those wasted hours were tryin to show you something more about those wasted floweres, to see just what you're giving for, and all those wasted words were heard and spoken simply to be your truth, simply to be heard and spoken by you… And what is my truth? And what do I want to say? And what is my meaning? And what is my way? Cause I feel so empty sometimes, feels like I need another to fill this hole inside, and I'm reachin, I'm searchin, I'm seekin, and I'm wantin, I'm askin, I'm needin… And maybe baby you can go down deep – where is that hole? Maybe baby you can go in deeper – what does it sound like? Maybe baby you can find what you seek – into the darkness. Maybe baby you will find much more – listening to silence… And I do not want to give anything less than love. And I do not want to settle for anything less than your whole heart. And I do not want to give anything less than love! And I do not want you to settle for anything less than my whole heart…
It's holy… Nothing excluded, nothing outside, there are no exceptions to what is divine…
And it's not wasted hours spent being alone just with yourself; and no wasted flowers given just for giving out; and no wasted words, heard and spoken simply to be your truth, simply to be heard and spoken… it's not wasted breath… And it's not wasted hours trying to understand why you love someone, and how you want to be loved, trying to get to know yourself so you can love yourself that much
