i tried to fall in it again
my friends took bets and disappeared
in mine they're sighing violins
i think i'll wait another year

i want my chest to pressed to your chest
my nervous system interfere
ten or eleven months at best
i think i'll wait another year

this weather turns my tricks to rust
i am a lousy engineer
the winter makes things hard enough
i think i'll wait another year

plus i'm only twenty-six years old
my grandma died at eighty-three
that's lots of time if i don't smoke
i think i'll wait another year

i'm not as callous as you think
i barely breathe when you are near
it's not so bad when i don't drink
i think i'll wait another year

i have my new ad frank cd
i have my friends and my career
i'll find a coward just like me
and we'll help each other disappear
but it could take forever
i think i'll wait another year
a few more fake surrenders
i think i'll wait another year
can't we just wait together
you bring the smokes
i'll bring the beer
i think i'll wait another year

    General Commentits all about procrastinating and putting things off for another year, for whatever reason. we all do it.
    what she's waiting another year to do remains a mystery to me.

    General CommentThis song makes me so sad. Because it's about me.

    They all are.

    I am such an egotist :D

    General CommentI laughed out loud with the end of this song (ok, it's depressing, but I thought it to be the most sarcastic depressive ending for a song).. It's like 'ok, we have hundreds of years to waste, but maybe I want it to end sooner, i'd rather lose my time destroying myself than losing than doing nothing'
