"Annie, Let's Not Wait" as written by and Fyfe Dangerfield Hutchins....
Found something crying it was my soul
I fed it milk, so wouldn't grow old
We crossed the borderline at dawn
And woke up in a field of corn

A farmer told me I was late
I better start oiling the gate
Said that, "Those who rush'll fall"
But I don't wanna wait for waves
I don't wanna wait at all

Annie, let's not wait, let's cross the river now
We could sit for years staring at our fears
Oh, they're such pretty things they're so cute
But our dreams are all we really need to grow

I found something dying, it was my light
I had resigned itself, tonight
So I threw it out a fishing line and said
"Catch your will and then catch mine"

Oh, Annie, let's not wait, let's cross the river now
We could sit for years staring at our fears
Oh, they're such pretty things, they're so cute
But in the end they're just a suit

Oh, Annie let's not wait, time's not on our side
Well, it never was, you know that deep inside
Oh, just look at you with your ruffled hair
Oh, I love you and that's all you need to know

Annie, Annie
Annie, Annie
Annie, Annie
...

    General CommentThis song is fantastic. I don't think its about much though and some of the lyrics are only there because they rhyme. That said its sort of about not wanting to conform and get a job etc and just doing all the things you dream of.

    General CommentCouldn't agree more Mattzillaman. An outstanding track with a wombling sort of theme to it's lyrics- don't just sit on yer ass doing nothing with your life, take hold of it and throttle it - the backing vocals towards the end are such a cool addition. The tune reminds me a lot of a later OMD one (perhaps the Sugar Tax era?).

    General CommentI love this song. Actually, the lyrics are great. I think the artist is trying to get laid. Seriously, I cant avoid thinking he is proposing to Annie. Only one thing: where he says "staring at our fears" he should be saying "staring at our feet".

    General CommentIt's definitely "staring at our fears." Not "feet."

    "They're such pretty things, they're so cute." He's intentionally making their fears and concerns seem less daunting, less worth worrying about. It's beautiful.

    And of course the title is "Annie, Let's Not Wait" (not "Waiting").

    General CommentHe was feeling sad and incomplete, was afraid of getting older (probably because he hadn't done anything he wanted to)

    "Said that those who rush will fall. but i don't want to wait for waves i don't want to wait at all'' People always say that our time will come, we just have to wait for it, but he don't wanna to wait the fate ('the waves') do it, he don't wanna wait for anything. just want to go there and do it, just live!
