Isaac Laquedem

it's a long day

you’re waiting for a phone call that you know will never come

you're a freeway

they're the sun

play it off cool

like everything is turning out exactly how you planned

make your own rules

don't give a damn what they say

 

<chorus>

you're waiting for an answer

to a question that you asked when you were young and fearless

you're a poet and a dancer

you're a statue you are grace

and so you wait

</chorus>

 

it's a hard game

it’s like everyone except for you has memorized the rules

and you don't play

the way they do

so you watch, wait,

and try to make yourself a puzzle piece to fit inside the hole

but you’re the wrong shape

and you know what they'll say

 

<chorus>

 

oh everybody knows

something that you don't

and everything is wrong

cause you still don't belong

 

here

so you try to find a place where you can simply just exist

where the sky's clear

and you'll be missed

but you're a nomad

and the ground beneath your feet’s the only comfort you will know

until you look past

the open road and hold fast

 

<chorus>

 

you're waiting for a sign somehow

to finally settle down

and so you wait

you're waiting for the day to come

when you won't try to run

and so you wait
