I've been walking in the shadows for so long that I forgot the sun can shine
I've turned away from everone and everything that wanted to be mine
Somehow I always shot my eyes and heart to everything that I could share
Now I'm standing still and I'm wondering just how long have you been there
And every path I've taken I have turned around and quickly closed the door
It seems as though I knew if I ever stop to feel I want more
I kept a steady run so my eyes could never focus anywhere
Now I'm standing still and I'm wondering just how long have you been there
How long have you been standing there protecting me from love that shouldn't be
Knowing all alone that I could realize that you were meant for me
Now I've got to mend every broken fence and bridge that I have burned
I've got to clear away the cobwebs in my heart so I can start to learn
For I realize that you've been waiting just to teach me how to care
Now I'm standing still and I'm wondering just how long have you been there
And now I'm standing still and I'm wondering just how long have you been there
