"Waiting" as written by and Matthew Kelly Sharp....
I'm waiting
For something to come through
I'm hoping
I can write a real sweet tune

No passion
(ooo ooo ooo)
No warmth in these words
(ooo ooo ooo)
I'm trying
(ooo ooo ooo)
But have nothing to offer

I'm waiting
With nothing to do
I'm waaaiiiting , just a waiting on you

Sadly, just like before
It's lifeless and soulless, and yeah,
I fall way short

No beauty
(ooo ooo ooo)
No sweet melody
(ooo ooo ooo)
No four-part barber shop harmony

I'm waiting
With nothing to do
I'm waaaiiiting, just a waiting on you

I'm waaaiiiting on you
I'm waaaiiiting on you, you

I'm waiting
With nothing to do
I'm waaaiiiting just a waiting on you

Waiting on you (hoo ooo ooo)
Waiting on you (hoo ooo ooo)
Waiting on you (hoo oooo oooo)
Waiting on you (hoo oooo oooo)
Waiting on you, hoo oooo oooo
Waiting on you, hoo oooo oooo

    My InterpretationI've known this song for a few years now but it only recently started to relate to me so I'm going to throw in my two cents. The song to me is about trying to give something an effort to enjoy but you deep down don't feel it, and it sucks because at one time you had that passion for something. I think the song is about everything in general, too. The thing he's waiting for is that something or someone to come along and rejuvinate him and get that positive/loving emotion back into his life. I'm at a point in my life where I can relate so hard to that. I'm currently not into anyone or anything and not having that lust for something can make things so bland and it doesn't work when you force yourself to love something, and it makes you feel "lifeless" when you're indifferent towards so many things like a girl you used to love or something like that. I don't know. This song just came up on my shuffle the other day and I was like holy shit this song makes sense to me a lot right now. Sorry for rambling and the last comment for this song was like10 years ago so LOL but if anyone reads this I hope I'm not the only one that can relate!

    General CommentThis song is adhorable. No matter what the rentals are always going to have their innocent and mushy lyrics to back you up in almost any situation.

    General CommentAs to what it's actually about... fairly clear I guess, but he's trying to write a song about a girl, but can't seem to do his feelings justice.

    General Commenteh, edit- he's definetly trying to write and song and can't get it right, but it might not be about a girl... whatever.
