"Waiting" as written by and Peter Alan/thompson Veitch....
Standing outside myself waiting for the time
When one of us drops the ball.
Right now we're on a spin; one foot out,
One foot in. I can't tell where we will fall.

Who will be the first to leave?
I wait for you.
You wait for me.

Standing poutside myself looking at this life
Like a fly sitting on the wall.
I see who we've become; who you aren't and who I'm not. From here I don't know us at all.

Who will be the first to leave?
I wait for you.
You wait for me.

Ah ah ah ah

Who will be the first to leave?
I wait for you
You wait for me
I wait for you
I wait for you
I wait for you
