Wait So Long Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I could never pretend that I don't love you.
You could never pretend that I'm your man.
That's exactly the way that I want it.
That's exactly the way that I am.
Verse 2
And you call me in the morning with your troubles
Takin' it downtown every night
I could never place the stars at night above ya.
I got my hands on the ground,
And you know I'm right.
Verse 3
You wait so long
You wait so long
You wait so long
You wait so long
Verse 4
It's a coffee stained earth ever time it happens.
Liven up honey it ain't that bad.
Any afterthought rose to recognition
Like every other coffin that I had
Verse 5
And your Buick broke down in Winnemucca,
Fall to your knees and you pray to the lord
Then you take up hope at the politicians:
Nothing happens in this burnt out town anymore.
Verse 6
You wait so long
You wait so long
You wait so long
You wait so long
Verse 7
And your hollows on like a frozen freight train
You know that I help you if I can
But I'm just a raindrop in a river
Just a little itty-bitty grain of sand
Verse 8
And you know that I'm doomed to repeat this
With all the bad habits that I've learned
But it's better than your fiber 'n fornication
And all the dirty money that you earn.
Verse 9
You wait so long
You wait so long
You wait so long
You wait so long
Verse 10
You wait so long
You wait so long
You wait so long
You wait so long

I think it’s about a hooker as well. She calls him in the morning with her troubles because she’s downtown every night. Coffee stained earth = crying about her profession, fornication and dirty money. Yeah, he loves a stripper and is OK with it, he’d change it if he could but he’s just one guy, he can’t fix the world. - Comment by bulldogjenifer124 2 months ago
