"Wait" as written by and Polly Jean Harvey....
I thought that if I waited, things might happen
There was no need to move myself, what's happening to me?
I sit around, and sit around, my legs are underneath me
Sit around, and dream around the things I'm going to be.

But
I've waited so long
Forgotten what i was waiting for
Waited six long years or more
Another minute won't make any difference, at all.

Might even happen today, might even happen tomorrow.
Everyone is waiting, everyone was sighting
Ways of moving slowly, but nobody is moving.

I've waited so long
Forgotten what i was waiting for
Waited six long years or more
Another minute won't make any difference, at all.

Might even happen when you are looking out the window.
Might even happen when you are walking down the stairs.

All i seem to do is wait
Waiting for buses, waiting for trains
But my bus is always late
All i seem to do is wait
Spend my life anticipating things that will never happen.

My God, I've waited so long
Forgotten what i was waiting for
Waited six long years or more
Another minute won't make any difference, at all.
