Release information
Release Date: 2000-7-17
Genre: Folk, World, & Country
length: 4:29
True north is hard to find
These long, long nights play tricks upon the mind
I tried my best but I'm lost I guess
What I thought was freedom was just aimlessness

Now I'm waiting for Amelia to come in from the west
Waiting for Amelia and the light is fadin' fast
C'mon Amelia, you have got this battle won
You know that only angels fly into the sun

I have never learned to wait
I yearn for skies my heart can't navigate
It's been so long since I held someone
And all my dreams of freedom they don't keep me warm

Now I'm waiting for Amelia to come in from the west
Waiting for Amelia and the light is fadin' fast
C'mon Amelia, you have got this battle won
You know that only angels fly into the sun

Maybe the night was dark
And the sky was a starry dome
Maybe she lost her way
Or maybe she just didn't wanna come home

Now I'm waiting for Amelia to come in from the west
Waiting for Amelia and the light is fadin' fast
C'mon Amelia, you have got this battle won
You know that only angels fly into the sun
