I'm the star of a book you wrote before your career was illustrious
Though only renters and college kids skimmed through
Skipped through to the end to see if you got help from someone there up on high
Who may have heard the beacon's faint cry
"I could do things for you, I could do things for you"

All the reasons I always dreamed of school
I just dropped out and left them there
It was always the fabulous stain on, on my reputation for opening doors
And selling arts and crafts from the floor
Lately I notice much no more
We've been waiting for you
We've been waiting for you

I'm not like you, I'm done restating
Teen beat fears of bright lights fading
You learn to wean yourself off of it

Did some orphan's lament get heard one night, pinball through moons and time
Wind through some harmless darkness, bounce off stars
And knock into some warm waiting arms?
Or was it just some time served, some proof
Until we learned some obvious truth?
We've been waiting for you
We've been waiting for you

I'm not like you, I'm done restating
Teen beat fears of bright lights fading
You learn to wean yourself off of it

We've been waiting for you
