"Waiting Man" as written by Adrian Belew, William Scott Bruford, Robert Fripp and Anthony Charles Levin....
I come back...come back
You see my return
My returning face is smiling
Smile of a waiting man...

I be home soon soon soon
Soon cry on your shoulder
Your shoulder against my burning tears
Tears of a waiting man...

One two three four one two three...
I wait every moment
I wait, wait for my chance
I wait for my friend to say

Hello, you waiting man
Feel no fret feel no fret feel no fret
You can wait and feel no fret
And so I wait so I wait so I wait so I wait

I return face is smiling
Be home soon cry on your shoulder
Tears of a waiting man
Every moment wait for my chance

My friend say hello feel no fret
You can wait and I wait and I wait
And home I am...

    My InterpretationThe song is from the point of view of a person going to a funeral and then coming home. Home is forever changed by the loss, but retains its integrity.
    What is he waiting for? What we all wait for after losing a loved one; their return. Something irrational and impossible, yet what we wait for all the same as we grieve.

    General CommentIt seems pretty obvious to what this song's about. I think it's about a guy who falls in love with a girl, the girl goes off to a new (possibly better looking, richer, but not nicer) guy, and the waiting man knows that their relationship will end, so he just sits and waits for her to come back to him. Really a deep and touching song IMNSHO.
