Verse 1
I’m in love with a King
He said, “I love you more than anything”
And He treats me like a queen
When I run and ruin everything
Well I lost the fight
I’m alone in the absence of any light
But He’s raising an army
To find me and be my shining knight

So you wait, you wait, when I run so far and lose my way
You wait, you wait, you’d find me out in the pouring rain
You wait, you wait, and even in the dark You still remain
You wait, You wait

Verse 2
So here is my white flag
I’m a traitor who lost everything that I’ve had
And I deserve the worst
For being the kind that should be cursed
As I stare at your crown
You look me in the eye and sit me down
And say, “Darling, I’ve been waiting for you so you could be found”


Well I’m running out of reasons to doubt
The seal upon your vow
And you’ll run after me and all the weight
Of the shame that I carry
But how could you save a wretch like me?
So take my wandering heart and bind it to thee
Bind it to thee, bind it to thee, bind it to thee
