Waiting in Vain

The leaves fall to the ground again
It's that time of year when the cold sets in
Here I am staring into the rain again
Can't seem to get no sleep, no rent, no food to eat
I've had enough of all the strain

When's it gonna change for you
When's it gonna change for me
That day of reckoning, will it ever come to be
Or are we just waiting in vain

Unanswered prayers are drifting through space again
Is their anybody up there listening
My faith is slowly sinking down again
Sometimes it's hard to believe


Fairytale, myth or prophecy
I just can't decide, but still
I hope it all comes true
and wipes this darkness from my life
