about

A cricket lived bedside my house last summer. He kept asking the same question over and over and over.

lyrics

WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR
copyright 2006 john common music

you're with withholding
now unfolding inside
to be holding
that smile that turns me into

juxtaposer
such a see through loser
hold me closer
this limping horse wants to run

what are you waiting for?
who’s going to save you when you’re on fire?
what are you waiting for?
for jesus to come and throw you in the ocean?

motor scooter
my fly commuter, to be
your new suitor
at least until the sun comes up

something chemical
illogical and digital
it's beautiful in my head…

quiet breakdown...
my mistake was making
those awake sounds
you make when you want to get up

what are you waiting for?
who’s going to save you when you’re on fire?
what are you waiting for?
for jesus to come and throw you in the ocean?
