Waiting For The Key To Drop


I'm waiting for the key to drop
I'm waiting for the rain to stop
I'm waiting for my bubble to pop
And burst again

I'm waiting for my new best friend
I'm waiting for this film to end
Clip off this cast I'm on the mend
Complete recovery

   I'm waiting...mmmm-hmmm I'm waiting
   I'm waiting...mmmm-hmmm I'm waiting

I'm thinking that the light's too low
Is that a fox buried in the snow?
I see it's whiskers, they're all aglow
And shining on (in this winter sun)

   I'm waiting...mmmm-hmmm I'm waiting
   I'm waiting...mmmm-hmmm I'm waiting (for you)

Your eyes shink within their metal frames
Reflect the frozen headlights of a train
And the sputter as it starts to rain
All over again

   Are you waiting...mmmm-hmmmm are you waiting?
   Are you waiting...mmmm-hmmmm for me?

   (spoken)
   A toothbrush in a paper cup
   Shirt tail in, snip and tuck
   The ice is melting, your time is up
   YOu look ahead (yeah, what she said)

You're waiting for the key to drop
Needing to unlock your lock
Desperate to flip and flop
And burst again

   Hands whizzing round on a clock that sits in the square in the center of town
   People moving on past that clock that sits in the square in the middle of town
   In the middle of...town
