"Waiting, Watching, Wishing" as written by and Chris Trapper....
Well here we go again
Looking for a ride
Got a smile to hide
All the rain in my eyes
And your bags are full with loving goodbyes

I don't care if I never grow up
Don't want to shrink in a suit
Don't want live just to suck someones bones dry
I'd rather die

Each time I think back to my home town
And my sad skinny self standing around
Waiting, watching, wishing for something to happen

I used to dream about a girl like you
Hair dyed black and eyes jet blue
Desperately trying and searching for something fantastic

We've been here before
Stood up at the door
Holding secrets we'd never say
Hey, don't hang your head
Feel the breeze instead
Fear no shadow, don't feel no shame

All it took was one punch in the face
To make me want to steal the guys car in the first place
The grass on the suburban lawns never looked so black

Crack in the window
Slip in through the door
Hand me your hair-pin
Your knees to the floor
Head to the highway
Never turning back
We're never turning back
We're never turning back
We're never turning back
We're never turning back

Car by car
And line by line
One day you'll find your place
And I'll find mine
In a new time
In a strange new place
Get up, get up, get down
On and on and on we go
We got no radio
Singing songs we know
For miles and miles on open road
Get up, get up, let's go

We've been here before
Stood up at the door
Holding secrets we'd never say
Hey, don't hang your head
Feel the breeze instead
Fear no shadow, don't feel no shame

Waiting, watching, wishing for something
Get up, get up, get down
Waiting, watching, wishing for something
Get up, get up, get down
Waiting, watching, wishing for something
Get up, get up, get down
Waiting, watching, wishing for something
Get up, get up, get down

    General CommentAmazing song. Is this song about a robbery? It seems like he wants some excitement in his life, and not wanting to "wait, watch, wish for something to happen."
