waiting room lyrics – adrian belew

when will i ever grow up
when will today be enough
when will i learn to be here now?
it’s on the other side of the door – that’s what i’m looking for
i have what i need – why do i want more? more?
put a lot of pavement on my shoes
made a lot of payments on my dues
i’m running out of patience just like you
i’ll be in the waiting room tomorrow just like today and yesterday
why am i still waiting my life away?
where will i find the will to stop running and just stand still
and take a look at the bird in my hand?
how can i find the faith to drop out of the human race
and let the future crawl back to its cage?
