Every day is an endless dream
Of traffic lights and gasoline,
Watching as the world passes me by.
All my friends have gone away,
Leaving empty strangers in their place.
The empty fills me up sometimes.

I am only waiting
For someone to break my heart.
I am only waiting for someone.
I've got these words that I've been saving
For a song that I can't start,
While I am waiting
For someone to break my heart.
While I am waiting
For someone to break my heart.

Every night's the same to me,
Alcohol and scripted scenes, and looking
For some answers I won't find.
A hundred different shades of gray,
A million miles and nothing seems to change.
I ain't changed in such a long time.

I am only waiting
For someone to break my heart.
I am only waiting for someone.
I've got these words that I've been saving
For a song that I can't start,
While I am waiting
For someone to break my heart.
While I am waiting
For someone to break my heart.

I am only waiting
For someone to break my heart.
I am only waiting for someone.
I've got these words that I've been saving
For a song that I can't start,
While I am waiting
For someone to break my heart.

    General CommentI think the writter has, in the past, always written about falling in love, being in love, falling out of love, etc. But now, he hasnt had anything to do with love, and has nothing to write. So he's waiting for someone to break his heart so he can write a song.
