lyrics

DON'T WAIT

verse: Dm Am (Gm F) Bb
chorus: F Bb

up all night, whispers in my head
the MRI can't tell me what they said
& the stars are out...in their eternal debate
you can catch up to the answers if they'll wait

[CHORUS]
but they don't wait...they don't wait

quick as a scar, turning your head
i was allowed but i never said
& the words they will form a cascade
with the sun in your eyes, the mood of the place
the tick of the clock, the time that we waste
& i know you never felt more betrayed

[CH]
more betrayed...& i don't wait
i don't wait, i don't wait

[SOLO over VERSE]

blue & red lying in bed ashamed
the purple space between them goes unnamed
& you might state it plain – you might be saved
but i'll still lay my losses in your grave

[CH]
but you don't wait...& i don't wait
we don't wait...on our son
we both look...at the other one
& they don't wait; they don't wait.
