While I’ve been waiting for a handful of my thoughts to finish themselves musically, I came to write a song about patience in the meantime. We played it a couple weeks ago and recorded the performance so I’m sharing the lyrics.

“Waiting For”
Music & Lyrics by Karen Bridges

Hey you, whatcha doing with my heart?
Hey you, you gonna watch it fall apart?
Hey you, all I’ve been hearing from you is how you’ve got a plan
Hey you, you know I’m patient but there’s only so much heartache I can stand

What are you waiting for, what are you waiting for now?
Show me what you’ve got in store, what are you waiting for now?

Hey you, when’re ya puttin’ on that speed?
Hey you, I could think of a few better places to be
Hey you, can you tell me why I worked so hard for this?
Hey you, you’ve got your eyes closed, back turned, no one else to blame for what you’ve missed

What are you waiting for, what are you waiting for now?
I’ve half a mind to show you the door, what are you waiting for now?

I’m gonna love you hard even if it breaks my heart. Honey, I don’t care if I come out scarred
Don’t let me go without a fight. You know we’re on the same side.
We’re gonna figure this out if we get some time

What are we waiting for, what are we waiting for now?
What are you waiting for, what are you waiting for now?
