Waiting

Lyrics: Waiting

MAYBE IT’S JUST ME

OR MAYBE IT’S THE WORLD

IT’S ALL SO CRAZY

MAYBE IT’S THIS SORROW

FROM WAITING ON TOMORROW, I’LL BORROW

A SMILE AND A LAUGH,

WORTH A MILE AND A HALF,

BUT TODAY’S ANOTHER DAY

AND I DON’T SEE A SINGLE RAY

WHY’S THE SUN SO LAZY?

ALL I SEE ARE SKIES OF GREY HEY, HEY, HEY

 

I’VE KNOCKED KNOCKED HARD

ON TOMORROW’S FRONT DOOR

TIME HAS LOCK, LOCKED BARRED

ME FROM WHAT I’M WAITING FOR

I’VE BEEN ROCK ROCK SCARRED

LEFT ON YESTERDAY’S COLD FLOOR

I’M STILL WAITING

 

MAYBE IT’S THE DAWN

LIKE A MEMORY WITHDRAWN

IT’S ALL SO HAZY

MAYBE I’M JUST SMALLER

FROM BETTING THAT BOTTOM DOLLAR, A SQUALOR

WORTH A FROWN AND A TEAR

I’LL JUST WAIT ANOTHER YEAR

 

BUT YESTERDAY IS GONE

YET I’M STILL HANGING ON

COME AND GET YOUR BABY

I’M COUNTING, COUNTING ON THE SUN

 

I’VE KNOCKED KNOCKED HARD

ON TOMORROW’S FRONT DOOR

TIME HAS LOCK, LOCKED BARRED

ME FROM WHAT I’M WAITING FOR

I’VE BEEN ROCK ROCK SCARRED

LEFT ON YESTERDAY’S COLD FLOOR

I’M STILL WAITING

 

FOR THE SUN TO COME OUT

AND THE RAYS TO RUSH IN

AND UN-BREAK THIS HEART

I’M SO READY OH OH OH OH

FOR THE LIGHT TO COME AND FIND ME


This song was inspired by the character Annie.    There was a character in Nobody’s Idol, a 20-something orphan who believes wholeheartedly that she is the little orphan Annie.  She decides to go on this televised singing competition to help find her parents.

I wanted to post these song lyrics as I’ve been waiting for a couple of results.  I submitted the play I’ve been working on Witch to the Fringe play contest.  Who knows?   The draft I submitted isn’t even really that done – there is so much more I need to add to it.  I also put my name in the hat for the lottery.  This year I am not going to take it personally if I’m not picked.  That is definitely my main problem – I take things way too personally.  I don’t know why I’ve just always been sensitive.   My second in command is my secret singer partner, Ana Trask.  We’ll do some incarnation of The Secret Singers or we have been working on a musical we’re calling Ghosted.   

I agonized all day about whether or not I would go to the party where they announce the contest and lottery winners but I couldn’t.  It’s too overwhelming.  I’ll monitor the twitter feed as I’ve done for the past couple years.

I have also been waiting to hear about this grant I applied for way back in August.  I was mistaken when I thought the results were going to given in November.  All month I checked my email incessantly.  But I was wrong it’s actually supposed to be December.  Still waiting to find out.  I tried to send a polite little email just to see if maybe it would be like tomorrow or next week.  All I got was a generic: soon.  I tried to get more information about what the hold up might be – is it an I.T. thing?  Are they still deliberating?  They reminded me December was an approximation.
