Lyrics

She used to be so wise
Bartenders would come to her for advice
And she was always so outrageous with mascara in her hair
And perfume in her eyes
And she never took anything for granted
Even though it was all God-given
But the day her pager read “9-1-1”
Was the day that she stopped livin’.

Now she’s waiting, and she’s waiting
For someone who’s just not coming
He’s not there anymore.

I saw her sitting at the border
Waiting for him to arrive
The obituaries were screaming in her lap
As she whispered, “I know he’s alive.”
I tried to reason with her gently
But I sounded like a Hallmark Card
In an effort to distract her, I tried to seduce her
But she wouldn’t let down her guard.

She’s just waiting, and she’s waiting
For someone who’s just not coming
He’s not there anymore.

Am I boring you with this story?
Do you wish it was more angst-ridden?
Do you want me to tell you she killed her whole family
And they caught it on television?
Or do you want her to be your baby
Just as gentle as a kitten?
Or do you want her to be an allegory
With a meaning that’s very well hidden?

She used to be so wise
Now she can’t even make up her own mind
And she needs constant reassurance
That healing comes with time
She’s as beautiful as a recovery
And as talented as Mozart
But she would end her life at any given moment
Since she doesn’t believe it will start.

She’s just waiting, and she’s waiting
For someone who’s just not coming…
