The lyrics to this song are just so incredibly beautiful and apt for my life right now.

I am sure to some they will be about a loved soulmate lost whom they still pine for; but for me they represent a soulmate I may have met, or have yet to meet and whom I pine for… someone who understands that beneath ‘me’ ( YES I AM HAPPY and POSITIVE and LOVING and JOYFUL ) there is a girl who has been through an awful two months, the worst battle for the life of my beautiful hero sister Deb, in the 29 year journey we – and especially she – has had to endure. 

This tiny ordinary girl Jojo, is a little broken and tired and yet I smile and laugh through the day as it is who I am as a person – happy … yet little does the world know that at night my heart breaks for my sister and my world feels slightly shattered.

How wonderful to know I could meet a man, soulmate, friend and lover who could understand that, and love me for it… yes for my smiles and love and laughter but more importantly for me and the broken part of me that he wants to fix. A man who understands my love is for my family right now and yet knows I yearn one day for my own little ones, my own little family. A man who understands that all I have to give right now are the pieces of me not reserved for my sister when she needs me most,  as she has given her world to me when I needed her most. These pieces are small but represent a love so beautiful, a promise of something so special that for now, for him, they would be enough…

….because little do I know he can see the bigger picture of a beautiful heart ready to love in time.

[Sierra:]
Little do you know
How I’m breaking while you fall asleep
Little do you know
I’m still haunted by the memories
Little do you know
I’m trying to pick myself up piece by piece
Little do you know
I need a little more time

[Sierra:]
Underneath it all I’m held captive by the hole inside
I’ve been holding back for the fear that you might change your mind
I’m ready to forgive you but forgetting is a harder fight

Little do you know
I need a little more time

[Alex:]
I’ll wait, I’ll wait
I love you like you’ve never felt the pain,
I’ll wait
I promise you don’t have to be afraid,
I’ll wait
The love is here and here to stay
So lay your head on me

Little do you know
I know you’re hurting while I’m sound asleep
Little do you know
All my mistakes are slowly drowning me
Little do you know
I’m trying to make it better piece by piece

Little do you know
I, I love you ’til the sun dies

[Sierra:]
Oh wait, just wait
I love you like I’ve never felt the pain,
Just wait
I love you like I’ve never been afraid,
Just wait
Our love is here and here to stay
So lay your head on me
[Alex:]
I’ll wait (I’ll wait), I’ll wait (I’ll wait)
I love you like you’ve never felt the pain,
I’ll wait (I’ll wait)
I promise you don’t have to be afraid,
I’ll wait
The love is here and here to stay
So lay your head on me
Lay your head on me
So lay your head on me

[Alex:]
‘Cause little do you know
I, I love you ’til the sun dies
