I’ve been waiting for you, my dear
I’ve been waiting for you
over valleys and mountains
it helps to keep counting the days

and last night felt kind of strange, my dear
last night felt kind of strange
all those blankets and sheets
and those lies through your teeth that i fell through

and closing the doors never helped me close up the room
now i’m hosting the gathering
when all the men will be boys
and the girls sing the chorus again

and i’ve been writing your name, sweet pea
I’ve been writing your name
on the hotel halls and all the bathroom stalls
it’s for you

and you came to one of my shows
i saw your face from the candle light glow
and my fingers forgot where to push in the knots of the wood

and closing the doors never helped me close up the room
now i’m hosting the gathering
when all the men will be boys and the girls sing the chorus again, again

and closing the doors never helped me close up the room
now i’m hosting the gathering
when all the men will be boys and the girls sing the chorus again.
and holding your hand never helped me forget the truth.
now i’m hoping your right this time,
and all the men will grow up
and the girls start to see a new day

that all the men will grow up
and the girls start to see a new day

but all the men will be boys
and the girls sing the chorus again.
