"Waiting For Wednesday" as written by and Lisa Loeb....
Waiting for wednesday, my stomach doesn't hurt enough
Pain always is the sign.
Waiting for wednesday, no proof of mine exists,
So I don't have to take it back.
Don't want to show you good-bye,
Show you good-bye.
Show you good-bye.
Show you good-bye.
But you're waiting for wednesday.
Waiting for wednesday.
Waiting for wednesday, I pray you'll put me on the spot.
I do believe you, that you'll love me that you'll leave me.
Don't want to show you good-bye,
Show you good-bye.
What will I do when you come near to me?
You'll put me on the spot.
You've been doing this a long, long time,
Not that you're better than me,
But that you do it a lot.
Now I'm waiting for wednesday,
Waiting for wednesday,
Waiting for wednesday,
I'm waiting for wednesday.
I'm gonna show you good-bye,
Show you good-bye,
Show you good-bye,
Show you good-bye.
Now I'm waiting for wednesday,
You're back from out of town,
The west is dry, your mind is clear,
And I don't want to be here,
I don't want to be here,
I don't want to be here,
To show you good-bye.
And I'm waiting for wednesday,
Waiting for wednesday,
I'm waiting for wednesday, to show you good-bye.
I don't want to be here, to show you good-bye.
Waiting for wednesday.
I don't want to be here.
Waiting for wednesday, to show you good-bye,
To show you good-bye!

    General CommentActually, it is. In the liner notes of her best-of compilation, Lisa writes, "This is actually a song about hoping that you're not pregnant: looking at your birth control pills and waiting for Wednesday to come to prove that you're not pregnant. I don't usually explain that in concert."

    General CommentQuote from Lisa Loeb:

    "At first you think the narrator is waiting for Wednesday because that's when she thinks her boyfriend is going to tell her goodbye. But by the time the last chorus appears, the tables have turned and she's in fact waiting to say goodbye to him. It's really about not knowing whether to stay in a relationship or leave."

    General CommentShe is waiting to see if she gets her period, and thinking about what that means to her relationship. By the end of the song, she decides that she is going to leave the other person whether or not she is pregnant.

    General CommentI always suspected this song was about a girl waiting for her period, but since having that theory confirmed I havan't enjoyed it as much. Too anxity provoking maybe? I don't know.

    General Commentit's definitely NOT about a girl having her period. the only thing that could allude to that is "my stomach doesn't hurt enough, pain always is a sign" but that is about her being nervous and getting butterflies in her stomach. jesus.
