Uptempo jazzy-pop; a chain of thoughts while waiting for love unrequited

lyrics

Waiting
Copyright 2016 Sweet Amnesia Music, ASCAP

Waiting for you requires the truest test of patience
If I know the meaning of the word in its relation to
other times in my life I’ve had to wait for other things:
tadpoles, telephones, toasters and of course, spring

While I’m speaking about changes in the weather,
have you noticed that when waiting, the days run on forever,
I’ve had ample time alone to count the sunrises, new moons, supernovas,
monsoons and satellites

I'm still waiting, waiting, waiting for your love
I'm still waiting, waiting, waiting for your love

Waiting for you requires the truest test of patience
And finding reasons to takes everything I’ve got
It seems the more I watch the time, the greater your hesitation
The more I explain your silence, the stranger my thoughts

I'm still waiting, waiting, waiting for your love
I'm still waiting, waiting, waiting for your love

Funny I should mention things that move in endless circles,
I feel a certain empathy for things that go in circles
I’m drawn to things that can conceal their edges cleverly:
pancakes, crater lakes, pinwheels and daydreams

I'm still waiting, waiting, waiting for your love
I'm still waiting, waiting, waiting for your love

I'm waiting for your love
I want to just give up
I'm waiting for your love
I want to just give up

I'll keep waiting
I'll keep waiting
