It was a blue letter she wrote to me
It's silver words she told
"Want to be on the road to paradise
I want to lover who don't get old"

Do I read the message in your eyes?
You want a love to stay another night
Baby, when your day goes down
I won't be waitin' around for you

For every voice you've ever heard
There's a thousand without a word
Redbird, don't say you told me so
Give me one more song to go

Do I read the message in your eyes?
You want a love to stay another night
Baby, when your day goes down
I won't be waitin' around for you

(Oh yeah)

For every voice you've ever heard
There's a thousand without a word
Redbird, don't say you told me so
Give me one more song to go

Do I read the message in your eyes?
You want a love to stay another night
Baby, when your day goes down
I won't be waitin' around for you

I ain't waiting, I ain't waiting, I ain't waiting (c'mon)
I ain't waiting, I ain't waiting, I ain't waiting
I ain't waiting, I ain't waiting, I ain't waiting

    My InterpretationThe song is about being dumped by someone who is searching for a much younger lover, or possibly, fame and immortality, forcing both lovers to go their own way (heh heh, sorry) and resenting each other, with Buckingham actually passive aggressively saying: "I hope you fail."
