I'm sitting in the car again
Waiting for you
You said you'd be a minute
But you've been twenty two
See you've got to do your hair
And get it just right
Sometimes you're in the bathroom
For half of the night

And I'm waiting for you again
Yes I'm waiting for you
And I'm waiting for you again
Tell me what can I do
And I'm waiting for you again
Yes I'm waiting for you
And I'm waiting for you again
Tell me what can I do

Now I'm sitting by the phone again
Waiting for your call
You'd said you'd phone at two
And it's a quarter past four
Now I'm standing out the front
Again
It's late at night
And I'm truly sick to death of
Sleazy men
Undressing me with their eyes

And I'm waiting for you again
Yes I'm waiting for you
And I'm waiting for you again
Tell me what can I do
And I'm waiting for you again
Yes I'm waiting for you
And I'm waiting for you again
Tell me what can I do

Now I'm back back from
The theater
I watched the show alone
I waited for you and
I missed half act one
Have you never heard
Of the phone
I don't like being
Taken for granted
I'm too nice for my own good
See I do what I say
And i say what I do
Is it too much to expect
That you could
I wish you would

I ain't waiting for you no more
I ain't waiting for you
I ain't waiting for you no more
Go find another fool
I ain't waiting for you no more
I ain't waiting for you
I ain't waiting for you no more
It's the usual coup
I ain't waiting for you no more
I ain't waiting for you
I ain't waiting for you no more
May I show you the door
I ain't waiting for you no more
I ain't waiting for you
I ain't waiting for you no more
I ain't missing nothing for you

    General CommentIs it prokofiev that was sampled for this?

    I can never remember the name or composer, but it has been twisted perfectly to fit this theme.

    General CommentI love this song, never knew it to be Sia until I got into Zero 7.It doesn't need much interpretation, but is never the less outstanding.

    General CommentCould the narrator's relationship possibly be with a metrosexual man? He takes an awful lot of time to do his hair. Either that, or they're in a neighborhood where the "sleazy men" are gay...

    General CommentSia has been in a relationship with a woman before so since she is bisexual this song could be directed at a female character.
