about

“Waiting” is a song about patience, or in this case, the lack thereof. This song is similar to “Like The Rain” in that it touches on the same issue of comparing myself to others and wishing I could achieve more in a faster timeframe. The more I would obsess about not moving forward quickly enough, the more that life would seem to bring me down and get me frustrated. It’s something I still struggle with from time to time, but I feel like I’ve learned my lessons in this area and am improving.

This song also uses personification, which is when you assign human like qualities to something that isn’t human or sometimes to something that isn’t even living. I used this on a couple of songs on this album to make things a little more interesting instead of talking about a subject or subject matter in a more straightforward fashion. In this one I used the mess of thoughts in my head and the misery of being impatient and gave them human qualities to make the listener think and reflect a bit more on what the song is really trying to say. Hopefully it does just that.

lyrics

Where did you come from again
This mess in my head
I locked you inside of your cell
But you picked the lock and you fled

Cause if there’s a way
To change my fate
Then I’d be ok
But I can’t wait
No I can’t wait

Where did you come from again
This misery
Took a plane ride out of the city
But you touched down for an emergency landing

Cause if there’s a way
To change my fate
Then I’d be ok
But I can’t wait
No I can’t wait

All my life I’ve tried
To wait around for the right time
All my life I’ve tried
But still I’m waiting here
The last in line

Cause if there’s a way
To change my fate
Then I’d be ok
But I can’t wait
No I can’t wait
