It's so easy when you call
I was waiting by the phone
Knowing that you're all alone
And I ask you when you call;
'But will you wait for me?'
...Will you wait for me?
Cause in a while I'll never look behind
Even when I'll nearly lose my mind
So when the devil wins that toss
Will we be making it across?
Hang on...
Want it ,need it,
My want is found and feeding,
Hanging around with a girl
'Cause I want it, need it,
So bad I can hardly breathe but it slows me down.
And through all we bear the scars,
on the soul, through the stars,
Alone...
Forever we roam.
And you ask me when you call;
'But will you wait for me?'
...I will wait for you!
Cause in a while I'll never look behind
Even when I'll nearly lose my mind
So when the devil wins that toss
Will they be making it a cross?
Hang on...
Want it ,need it,
My want is found and feeding,
Hanging around with a girl
'Cause I want it, need it,
So bad I can hardly breathe but it slows me down.
Feel it in my mind and soul
Feel it in my constant lies
Feel it now, feel it go away... OH YEAH!
I WANNA GO, WHERE NOBODY'S GONE
WHILE HANGING AROUND WITH THAT GIRL
'CAUSE NOBODY KNOWS WHERE THE RIVER FLOWS NOW...
YOU'VE SLOWED ME DOWN!!!

    General CommentMaybe slightly more than the standard love, that you're so in love with them that you want to your lives to become one even though it would mean a massive change in your own life, or maybe that your life is going by that fast that the "slowing down" this song references is like "stopping to smell the flowers"

    General CommentThis song is definitely one about being in love, but I think it can be interpreted as being a song about sex, too. Very catchy and probably the closest Devin will get to the "pop genre".

    General CommentThis song has an oddly poppy feel to it... but it's Devin Townsend alright. I love this song, one of my favorites by him. Just awesome.

    And I can sing it, too.
