Lyrics: 

Waiting For The Call
The years could have been kinder, we tried to do our best
But there's always a reminder and a need for rest....
And with every moment passing, the distance now so great
You leave things in the strong hands of choice and fate
It could have been so different but nothing seemed to help at all
And all we can do is sit, waiting for the call
Summer turns to Winter but I think I lost you in the Fall
I'm thinking of you and waiting for the call
Alone here in my garden, new life starts to rise
I'm wondering how things look through your eyes
Is there anything that matters? Is there anything you feel
That would make a little difference and help us heal?
It could have been so different but nothing seemed to help at all
And all we can do is sit, waiting for the call
Summer turns to Winter but I think I lost you in the Fall
I'm thinking of you and waiting for the call
The years could have been kinder, it's the choices that we make
We learn from the reminders but not mistakes
So whatever comes tomorrow - I love you and that is all
But I'm still waiting
I'm waiting for the call

Roy Henderson 11/7/19

This is very beautiful... well constructed. The lyrics are excellent. They scan so fluidly. I love the shortened last line verses and the extra 2 lines in the chorus. Seriously good song.

Hauntingly melancholic! Sounds like a classic. Wonderful lyrics, the melody is just right for them, and your vocal does them both perfect justice. Excellent song!
