lyrics

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
