Angel Olsen The Waiting Lyrics

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 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
