Waiting In The Weeds

歌詞

It's coming on the end of August

 

Another summer's promise almost gone

 

And though I heard some wise man say

 

That every dog will have his day

He never mentioned that these dog days get so long

 

I don't know when I realized the dream was over

 

Well there was no particular hour no given day

 

You know it didn't go down in flame

 

There was no final scene no frozen frame

I just watched it slowly fade away

 

And I've been waiting in the weeds

Waiting for my time to come around again and

Hope is floating on the breeze

Carrying my soul high up above the ground and

I've been keeping to myself

Knowing that the seasons are slowly changing you

And though you're with somebody else

He'll never love you like I do

 

I've been biding time with the crows and sparrows

 

While peacocks prance and strut upon the stage

 

If finding love is just a dance

 

Proximity and chance

 

You will excuse me if I skip the masquerade

 

 

And I've been waiting in the weeds

Waiting for the dust to settle down

 

 

Along the Back roads running through the fields

 

Lying on the outskirts of this lonesome town

 

 

 

 

And I imagine sunlight in your hair

 

You're at the county fair

You're holding hands and laughing

 

And now the Ferris wheel has stopped

You're swinging on the top Suspended there with him

And he's the darling of the chic

The flavor of the week is melting down your pretty summer dress

Baby what a mess you're making

 

I've been stumbling through some dark places

Now I'm following the plow

 

I know I've fallen out of your good graces

 

It's alright now

And I've been waiting in the weeds

Waiting for the summer rain to fall upon the

Wild birds scattering the seeds

Answering the calling of the tide's eternal tune

 

The phases of the moon

The chambers of the heart

The egg and dart

A small gray spider spinning in the dark

In spite of all the times the web is torn apart

And I've been waiting in the weeds

Waiting for my time to come around again and

Hope is floating on the breeze

Carrying my soul high up above the ground and

I've been keeping to myself

Knowing that the seasons are slowly changing you

And though you're with somebody else

He'll never love you like I do
