Description by Stephanie Fornasier

lyrics

"The feeling when, you are waiting for something… and you know it’s going to take a while, but you are starting to lose faith.
When you think of it, you have so much hope, your heart swells, it’s like falling in love for the first time when you imagine it happening! You think of all the endless possibilities, of how perfect and happy your life will be when you get it.
But you try not to allow yourself to think too much about it because you know, even if you do get it, if you build it up too much you will be disappointed.
But you just can’t help it… on long drives, or train or bus trips, when you’re trying to get to sleep and need something to occupy your mind, there it is, the promise of better things, and you let it take over.
But you’ve been waiting so so long. Do you have any patience left?

The song should start delicately, quietly, contemplative, like a typical acoustic ballad or piano piece (up 2 u!), but as it progresses, it shifts slightly and builds in intensity until it becomes a swooping (almost orchestral but not cheesy)
panoramic expression of joy and wonder! And then silence as reality sinks back in"
