    "I've Been Waiting" Lyrics

    Sixpence None The Richer

    So I'm waiting by a phone for the blessed ring
    Like a Holy Grail for the Fisher King
    Time is ticking down like a metronome
    Rhythm for my brain, and ceaseless scales
    I never seem to play them to the beat I hear
    Though my heartbeat is a beat, that beats so near

    So we had a talk last night about the heavy blow
    That you dealt in fright, your back against the wall
    It was a puzzle piece, important to the whole
    That I may not find, to place within that hole
    I never seem to put them in the gaps I see

    Like a puzzle with the pieces lost you need

    So I'm changing who I am
    Cause what I am is not good
    And I know you love me now
    But I don't see why you should
    And I don't see why you should
    No, I don't see why you should

    So I drift into the air like a moth to light
    Down the boulevard to a coffee shop
    In the land of song, in the land of waits
    My pen is bearing down on this lonely town
    I never seem to write them down as good as him
    Like I, somewhere, lost the keys that let me in
