[Verse]
C
I came home
         F
Like a stone
             C              G
And I fell heavy into your arms
          C
These days of dust
           F
Which we've known
          C                  G
Will blow away with this new sun
 
[Pre-Chorus]
     Am    G/B   C
And I'll kneel down 
  F   C   G
Wait for now
    Am     G/B    C
And I'll kneel down
    F    C   G
Know my ground
 
[Chorus]
 C                             Em   G
I will wait, I will wait for you!

So break my step
      F
And relent
      C                    G
You forgave and I won't forget
                C
Know what we've seen
             F
And him with less
            C                 G
Now in some way, shake the excess

 C                                Em     G
Cause I will wait, I will wait for you!

And I will wait, I will wait for you!

Now I'll be bold

As well as strong
        C                           G         G
Use my head alongside my heart
           C
So take my flesh
           F
And fix my eyes
              C                           G           G
That tethered mind free from the lies
 
[Pre-Chorus]
   Am    G/B    C
And I'll kneel down 
  F   C   G
Wait for now
    Am     G/B   C
And I'll kneel down
    F    C   G
Know my ground
 
[Bridge]
 C     G/B Am      F   C   G     x2
 
 C    G/B Am
Raise my hands
 F          C       G
Paint my spirit gold
     C    G/B Am
And bow my head

Keep my heart slow
