You're everything I thought
I wanted as a young girl
Handsome and troubled
Worldly, wise and misunderstood
They call you a scholar
But they don't know the difference
And they call you Professor
But they don't know the subject

And it's all the same I suppose
When everyone's just living in lies
Oh, God, I swear sometimes its easier
To just deny what I know
And why I'm waiting
Well you still say

What you want
What you wish
What you crave
You've saved for more than this
John and Junior

What you've giv'n
How you pray
What this means
What awaits you more than
John and Junior

Go on, accuse me of
Existing in a castle
Go on and say I'll be
Finally woken and broken
When I'm sorely disappointed
With how life really is
How the real world is
But don't you see

You call me a dreamer
And I'll call you comfortable
While I'm on my adventure
You'll be safe with your ego
And you're hiding beneath the skin
Of an unlearned warrior
Oh, God, he makes being lost
Look so good and so good is
Better than nothing at all

But worse than the best will fail
And I'm still waiting
Yeah you keep saying my child

What you want
What you wish
What you crave
You've saved for more than this
John and Junior

What you've giv'n
How you pray
What this means
What awaits you more than
John and Junior

Oh, if you count
It'll go by so slow
But if I try then
Maybe I could follow
What I know
And why I'm waiting
You still say

What you want
What you wish
What you crave
What you've saved
For more than this
John and Junior

What you've giv'n
How you pray
What this means
What awaits you
More than John and Junior
