... for people just waiting.
     Waiting for a train to go
     or a bus to come, or a plane to go
     or the mail to come, or the rain to go
     or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow
     or waiting around for a Yes or No
     or waiting for their hair to grow.
     Everyone is just waiting.

     Waiting for the fish to bite
     or waiting for wind to fly a kite
     or waiting around for Friday night
     or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake
     or a pot to boil, or a Better Break
     or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants
     or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.
     Everyone is just waiting.

That's not for you!
          Somehow you'll escape
          all that waiting and staying.
          You'll find the bright places
          where Boom Bands are playing.
