Waiting to Exhale

Location

My heart is heavy and my head is unclear

Waiting to Exhale

My eyes are watering and my soul is crying

Still waiting to exhale

My hands are trembling and my smile is weak

And I'm still waiting to exhale

My chest is tight and my voice is shaky

Lord knows I can't wait to exhale

 

My ears are deceiving me and my knees are weakening

Waiting to Exhale

My tears are flowing and my fears are growing

Still waiting to exhale

My friends are ceasing and my family is decreasing

And I'm still waiting to exhale

My body is trembling and my anger is grumbling

Lord knows I can't wait to exhale

 

My faith is strong and my love is gone

Waiting to Exhale

My lungs are tired and my headaches won't retire

Still waiting to exhale

My life is flying and my future is blinding

And I'm still waiting to exhale

My hope is faded and my joy is fabricated

Lord knows I can't wait to exhale

 

My knowledge is multiplying, but my adoration is undying

Waiting to Exhale
