Sitting in unhealthy poses
While I’m sitting on a piece of carpet
That my father bought
Remembering things that my mother said
That contradict
Another voice
Voices mounting from opinions that
Depending on the circumstance
Sometimes waver my self-confidence
While negligent

And I wait for you
And I wait for you

Moving in unhealthy ways
While I’m sliding down
Your attention span
Counting on
That I might land
On solid ground
On solid ground
But you’re a million miles ahead of me
You won’t be turning back
I should be running along
Or stop the clock from turning
While ticking on

won’t you wait for me
won’t you wait for me

Sitting in unhealthy poses
While I’m sitting on a piece of carpet
That my father bought
Remembering things that my mother said
My father said
My mother said
My father said
My mother said
