Timo Schmitz: “Awaiting” (2013)

Should I feel happy or should I feel sad,
The longing in my heart, my secret dream, is it what I will get?
I told you, but I am still waiting for an answer, and new hope in my heart,
Awaiting – and still no words from your side, my heart is not yet apart,
And in a moment I think of you I feel so happy,
But my heart is still chappy,
I don’t know what you will say,
And if you agree, will you stay?

Awaiting – for two days, it feels like two weeks,
And knowing you care me brings a color on my cheeks,
But no answer from you, does it mean you did not receive it?
Or do you ignore me, and you don’t wanna see it?
You have to face the truth – now or later,
But if you let me alone, I’m not going to wait for ya,
So think of it quickly and tell me soon,
Because I am ready to love again.
