New Dawn Fades Lyrics

A change of speed, a change of style
A change of scene, with no regrets
A chance to watch, admire the distance
Still occupied though you forget
Different colours, different shades
Over each mistakes were made
I took the blame
Directionless so...

    He is NOT talking about waiting for a "particular" person. I believe with all of my one big unblinking eye, he was referring to basically the tiresome nature of being a old soul. You become like Marla on the mountain(Never Ending Story Reference). It's almost like you fade out of life's picture sometimes. There is almost nothing more you can cram into your "souls bag". You are too beyond the world to even fit in it or (sometimes want) to live in it anymore. It's just you, you see/ experience things others just can't, and you feel alienated and lonely by being so different. I can relate, fully.
