Waiting For Slow Songs (J. Ferguson/Sloan)

When you and your cast of friend arrive
And the party reaches a new high
Don't you think it'll last too long
Before you know it, baby
They break out into that song

That I know I've heard it once or twice
From where I just can't be precise,
Even though it's irrelevant
It's as if I've woken from,
A confused and cloudy dream

But you write the saddest song,
Turn around and make it a singalong
The heart scratch melody
Means there's more than this for you and me, yeah

When you wait by the door, look for your ride
And the shoes are piled up on the side,
And the dancing's out of hand
Don't leave just cause they won't play your favorite band

And the night goes on and on
And I'm waiting for slow songs,
But I block out most of the singing
Replaced by bells, is that your ride?
You only just arrived

But you write the saddest song,
Turn around and make it a singalong
The heart scratch melody
Means there's more than this for you and me, yeah

And the night it goes on and on,
I'm through waiting for slow songs,
But I block out most of the ringing,
Replaced by thoughts unjustified,
I wish that I could write

But you write the saddest song,
Turn around and make it a singalong,
The heart scratch melody
Means there's more to this than you and me

If words could be combined
To describe your trademark look tonight,
I'd write it out to boost my career,
But you know that writing always takes me years
