"I'll Be Waiting" as written by Oliver Robert Main, Matthew Peter George Bowman, David James Best, James David Naylor and Ryan Andrew Wilson....
I know you think you're so much better
and we used to get on fine together
now i don't think that will work
you want to see me in the dirt
made suspicious by your awkward glances
im not sorry that we took our chance
now you're heads a bit of a mess
im gonna put it down to success

i'll be waiting for you
when you wanna go
when you wanna go
i'll be waiting for you
when you wanna go
when you wanna go

oh so petty and so pretentious
false opinion, the rising tension
i don't think that will work
you'll never get me in the dirt
made suspicious by your awkward glances
in not sorry that we too out chance
now your heads a bit of a mess
im gonna put it down to success

i'll be waiting for you
when you wanna go
when you wanna go
i'll be waiting for you
when you wanna go
when you wanna go

i'll be waiting for you
when you wanna go
when you wanna go
i'll be waiting for you
when you wanna go
when you wanna go

    General CommentI have a feeling this may be a pop at the cribs and the songs that they have done about PD (Our Bovine Public, Don't you wanna be relevant).

    I know you think you're so much better
    and we used to get on fine together
    ------------
    The Cribs think they are so much better than the pigeon detectives (and they're right to think they're a better band, don't know whether they're better people), The Cribs and PD used to get on quite well until PD made it big.

    im not sorry that we took our chance
    ---------
    PD aren't sorry they took their chance to make it big.


    now you're heads a bit of a mess
    im gonna put it down to success
    ---------
    The Cribs and Ryan Jarman inparticular are arrogant.

    oh so petty
    ---------
    The Cribs being petty creating songs about PD, and now PD being petty making a song about TC.

    false opinion
    ---------
    The Cribs are maybe wrong to call PD a generic indie band.

    i'll be waiting for you
    when you wanna go
    ---------
    When The Cribs feel like quitting, PD will always be there to take their place as indie kings

    Or it could be about how most 'rock-stars' look down on the working class - arrogant.

    Or i could be just talking complete nonsense! Haha.

    General CommentApparently at the gig at Leeds Academy a few years back (2008?), Matt Bowman exchanged the line "im not sorry that we took our chance" for "Ryan Jarmans a bit of a wanker". So, I was almost right!
    But:
    "i'll be waiting for you
    when you wanna go"
    Is basically offering them out for a fight.
