Wait For It Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Theodosia writes me a letter everyday
I'm keeping the bed warm while her husband is away
He's on the British side in Georgia
He's trying to keep the colonies in line
But he can keep all of Georgia
Theodosia, she's mine
Verse 2
Love doesn't discriminate
Between the sinners
And the saints
It takes and it takes and it takes
And we keep loving anyway
We laugh and we cry
And we break
And we make our mistakes
And if there's a reason I'm by her side
When so many have tried
Then I'm willing to wait for it
I'm willing to wait for it
Verse 3
My grandfather was a fire and brimstone preacher
But there are things that the homilies and hymns won't teach ya
My mother was a genius
My father commanded respect
When they died they left no instructions
Just a legacy to protect
Verse 4
Death doesn't discriminate
Between the sinners
And the saints
It takes and it takes and it takes
And we keep living anyway
We rise and we fall
And we break
And we make our mistakes
And if there's a reason I'm still alive
When everyone who loves me has died
I'm willing to wait for it
I'm willing to wait for it
Verse 5
Wait for it
Wait for it
Wait for it
Verse 6
I am the one thing in life I can control
Verse 7
Wait for it
Wait for it
Wait for it
Wait for it
Verse 8
I am inimitable
I am an original
Verse 9
Wait for it
Wait for it
Wait for it
Wait for it
Verse 10
I'm not falling behind or running late
Verse 11
Wait for it
Wait for it
Wait for it
Wait for it
Verse 12
I'm not standing still
I am lying in wait
Verse 13
Wait
Wait
Wait
Verse 14
Hamilton faces an endless uphill climb
Verse 15
Climb
Climb
Climb
Verse 16
He has something to prove
He has nothing to lose
Verse 17
Lose
Lose
Lose
Lose
Verse 18
Hamilton's pace is relentless
He wastes no time
Verse 19
Time
Time
Time
Verse 20
What is it like in his shoes?
Verse 21
Hamilton doesn't hesitate
He exhibits no restraint
He takes and he takes and he takes
And he keeps winning anyway
He changes the game
He plays and he raises the stakes
And if there's a reason
He seems to thrive when so few survive, then Goddamnit
Verse 22
I'm willing to wait for it
I'm willing to wait for it
Life doesn't discriminate
Between the sinners and the saints
It takes and it takes and it takes
We rise and we fall
He play and he raises the stakes
And if there's a reason I'm still alive
When so many have died
Then I'm willin' to
Wait for it
Wait for it
Wait for it
Wait for it
Wait for it
Wait for it
Wait for it
Wait for it
Wait for it
Wait for it
Wait for it
Wait
