now we're gettin down early in the afternoon
we do a hundred sketchy things i swore id never get to do
theres a fire in your smile
let me watch for awhile
can't keep my eyes off your legs with that dress on you
wake me up now, i need this so bad
all the drugs i could fit in my lungs
couldn't fuck me up half as hard as the understated one

ive been waiting all my life for
ive been waiting all my life for
ive been waiting all my life for this
waiting all my life for this.

you make a blunt remark about my size
as we walk down sunset boulevard trading starry eyes
and the things that you say pierce my hide of LA
watch you, giggle as it spits up bile the block your way
and i melt as your top lip wrinkles with wit so nimble
wakes my ghost, cling to my former coast
you extend your arm to save me from its hungry moat

and ive been waiting all my life for
ive been waiting all my life for
ive been waiting all my life for this
waiting all my life for this.

you tend to laugh with childish dignity
and you tend to pretend that you didnt always see
when i psychically said "you should choose me instead"
my eyes stripped you bare right in front of me
but if you leave me, ill always wait here
born blondes put holes in our tongues
i wish to god i could have met you as a younger one

ive been waiting all my life for
ive been waiting all my life for
ive been waiting all my life for this
waiting all my life for this

one whole year, one whole year, one whole year, one whole year.

    General Commenti think it should be "you extend your arm to save me from its hungry -moat-"
    moat as in the deep trench around a castle to keep out invaders. it makes more sense than hungry mount =/
