"Waiting Game" as written by and Van Morrison....
On a golden autumn day returning
Where each moment never is the same
Sometimes pure joy it comes with patience
When I'm waiting on, waiting game
When I'm waiting on, waiting game

There must be reason for all this inaction
Does it mean that everything must change
Sometimes I'm looking for perfection
When I'm waiting on, waiting game
When I'm waiting on, waiting game

I am the observer who is observing
I am the brother of this snake
I am the serpent filled with venom
A god of love and a god of hate

There is a presence deep within you
Sometimes they call it higher flame
And the leaves come tumbling down, remember
I'll be waiting on, waiting game
I'll be waiting on, waiting game

I am the observer who is observing
I am the brother of this snake
I am the serpent filled with venom
A god of love and a god of hate

There is a presence deep within you
Some people call it higher power in flame
When the leaves come tumbling down, remember
I'll be waiting on, waiting game
I'll be waiting on, waiting game.

    General CommentBeen a huge Van fan for a long time. Sort of stumbled on the album (The Healing Game) that this song comes from by accident. Not many people have heard this album, but after listening to it just once it became my favorite Van - if you are a fan, I STRONGLY recommend it. However, like a lot of Van songs, the songs on this album seem to have a lot of personal meaning that is extremely difficult to understand. In Waiting Game, it seems Van explores a long time relationship (rerferences to fall)and the demons and angels he brings to that relationship The lyrics and the music just tumble together, making it a very easy listening song (as are a lot of the songs on this album), good enough that you can sort of let it wash over you without even thinking about the meaning of the lyrics. Great music, great musician.
