Why haven't you called me?
Did you forget me?
I need to know

When were you intending
To break the silence
And let me know?

Mine is the loneliest of numbers
And now is the loneliest of times
You're 19 days late, but still I sit and wait, oh

Waiting and waiting
Waiting and waiting
Waiting and waiting
Waiting on you

Who have you been seeing
That made you forget me?
I bet you call him

Where, oh where does he come from?
I bet he lives close by
I bet he's just a friend, oh

Mine is the loneliest of numbers
And now is the loneliest of times
You're 19 days late, but still I sit and wait, oh

Waiting and waiting
Waiting and waiting
Waiting and waiting
Waiting on you

Waiting and waiting
Waiting and waiting
You got me waiting
Waiting on you

I asked you if you had a good heart
You answered, "Yes, I'll never do you harm"
I asked you if you had a good heart
You answered, "Yes, I'll never do you harm"

    General CommentKarl and the guys? Karl's just the webmaster. He isn't in the band, haha.

    I always thought "19 days late" was a reference to her being pregnant. Like he's been waiting to find out if it was his, or if she cheated on him.

    General CommentI love this song too. To me this song is about a guy how likes this girl and gets her number and calls her all the time and she calls him but one day she stops calling and never says why. So, he doesnt have the balls to call her and just sits wondering why.

    General Commentthis song is so good! it's become one of my favourite weezer songs, and at the risk of sounding a bit cliche - i can totally relate. especially the last two lines.but i guess it's just another chronicle into the phenomenom of girls and the way they think. anyways, that's what i think...

    General Commentit was on 'the good life' ep which was only released in japan and australia back in 1997. its easy enough to find on p2p places, and is so worth it. one of the best songs from the pinkerton era. anyways, that's what i think...
