I bought a drink for you
But you were smoking with your friends outside and I see
Big things for you
I made plans for you and I

I scream screams for us
'Cause I have dreamed of bigger stuff and I know
Sometimes it hurts
Tell me when I'm gonna get what I want
Get what I want
And forget who I was
And I will wait

Saw you pass me by
No "hello", not even a smile
And I said a silent goodbye
Goodbye

I poured a drink for you
But you where smoking with your friends outside and I see
Big things for you
On my own, at least for awhile
And I will wait

    Song MeaningOne of my favourite's by Wolf Alice.

    Simple and heartbreaking, the simple act of doing something to impress someone you care for being ignored or going unnoticed due to the business of that person's life resulting in an idea of a romance blossoming becomes disillusioned, like the dissipating smoke from his cigarette. even the symbolic idea of the mental effects of smoking being a short term buzz can be related to the speaker and her unbridled optimism of buying a drink for someone to those shattered dreams of finding him not there for her, and that harsh acceptance of an empty chair next to her or a full wine glass - it ends on her assumption something will happen eventually but both the listener and speaker know that's hopeful and unlikely at best
