A reflection on a life left far behind that can never be returned to.


The only constant in this life is change
And though I'm proud of who we both became
I can't help but to miss the simpler days

Playing Sufjan on your old guitar
Drinking brine out of the pickle jar
And riding on our bikes long after dark

Yeah I miss all the days
We wasted
Just waiting
For something

The moths condemn themselves to seek the light
I watch in horror as their wings catch fire
And I wonder if I'll make it through the night

Don't think I didn't see your small sad smile
The kind that doesn't really reach your eyes
When I told you everything would be alright

Made me miss all the days
We wasted
Just waiting
For something
To take us out of this place
We hated
But that day comes
For no one

We're lost and we're waiting
We're waiting for something
We're lost and we're waiting
We're waiting for something

Ain't it funny how it never seems
(We're lost and we're waiting)
To quite hold up against your memories
(We're waiting for something)
We were living in a fantasy
(We're lost and we're waiting)
But it felt good while we still both believed in something
(We're waiting, we wait for something)
