"Waiting For An Invitation" as written by and Benji Hughes....
Ladies roll by
Like a million cemetery lawns
I don't even try anymore
Keeping up with the headstones
Maybe I've been waiting too long, too long
For somebody to throw my kinda party
And I know, I'm too old

Stadiums cry
You'll whine until your band gets back together
Don't you think it's probably time you sit and write your fans an apology letter
Maybe you've been waiting too long, too long
For somebody to throw your kinda party
And you're old, you're too old

If you're waiting for an invitation
You're gonna wait a long time
Wait a long time, wait a long time

If you're looking for an invitation
It's never gonna come, it's never gonna come
You're never gonna get one

Lovers they try, they try to whip the stars into compliance
Careful, don't you pull too hard
Don't want to knock the planets out of alignment
Maybe you've been waiting too long, too long
For somebody to show to the party
And you're old, you're too old

If you're waiting for an invitation
You're gonna wait a long time
Wait a long time, wait a long time

If you're looking for an invitation
It's never gonna come, it's never gonna come
You're never gonna get one

If you're waiting for an invitation
You're gonna wait a long time
Wait a long time, wait a long time, wait a long time,
you're gonna wait a long time, wait a long time,
wait a long time, wait a long time, you're gonna wait a long time,
wait a long time, wait a long time, wait a long time,
you're gonna wait a long time, you're gonna wait a long time

    General CommentThey played this in How I Met Your Mother when Ted finds out that Stella left him. Perfectly fitting in my opinion.

    General CommentI totally agree, kinda surprising scene and a great song - the best one of Benji's (weak) LP by the way.
