"The Waiting" as written by and Angel L. Olsen....
Here you come along
I take a breath and remind myself that I too can be strong
Thought I was cool
Turns out I'm a fool
Clearly you've proved me wrong
I didn't know what I was missing when I was alone

And now I'm fruitlessly waiting for
Someone not thinking before they start rushing to my door
Someone to run not walk
Oh, someone to sing not talk
Oh, no hesitation at all
Sometimes I need you to be the one to call

Well I'm lost in my thoughts
They tumble ahead
Over and over again
Yeah it's true

Just take a look at what's been done to me
I've wasted time to ponder
Here I am now all Alice in Wonder
Partly I do this to myself, but why can't you see?
The gesture is small, but know that it means the world to me

Oh, forgive me for wanting, I'm only learning
I've forgiven myself and now there's no returning
I want to be the one who knows the best way
I want to be the one who knows the best way
I want to be the one who knows the best way to love you

But now I'm foolishly waiting for
Someone not thinking before they start rushing to my door
Someone to run not walk
Oh, someone to sing not talk
Oh, no hesitation at all
Sometimes I need you to be the one to call
I need you to be the one
I need you to be the one
I need you to be the one
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
