Lyrics

A Gentle State Of Waiting
Words and Music © Grant Maloy Smith

The fields are waving honey
and the sun is hanging high
our feet are tired from running
And so we lie
so we lie / so we lie / so we lie

You're full of expectations
Some are great
and some are small
Sometimes you cry out of frustration
About it all
But you're pushing hard / much too hard

There's a gentle state of waiting
When you're in between the lines
And impatience drives you wild
There's a gentle state of waiting
And a gentle state of mind

You were stranded like a sailor
you were only seventeen
just a baby
And you alone could be your jailer
Your pocket holds the key
Still you're crying out / you're crying out for me

The waves are full of trying
And the moon is holding fast
Your eyes are done with crying
You're free at last
Free at last / free at last / free at last

Chorus

The fields are waving honey
and the moon is hanging high
Your heart beats fast
to make this moment last
You can free yourself /
You can free yourself tonight
