The Waiting

pathetic as it may be for a
man of twentyfive i’ll try
to write myself a note on what to dooo
when once again
i am fool enough to ignore
everything i’ve ever learned
when neither for the first nor last time
i chose to wait in silence

this fatal art of waiting
has cost me more than i’ll ever know

never knew how beautiful it really was
i hope i’ll never know
i stood and watched it happen to me
and i was waiting
unsure, contemplating doubts
but i’m not waiting now

for years i kept on moving lest i
slowed down long enough to think
about the life i kept myself from
for good or bad or ingenting
it took me eighteen years to get there
another seven to find home
an eternity to remind myself
whithersoever i go

pathetic as it may be for a
man of twentyfive i’ll try
to make this song the last reminder
not to let me sink so low
and never ever to ignore
all the things that i have learned
