Waiting In The Weeds

 

It's comin' on the end of August

Another summer's promise almost gone

And though I heard some wise man say

That every dog will have his day

He never mentioned that these dog days get so long

 

I don't know when I realized the dream was over

Well, there was no particular hour, no given day

You know, it didn't go down in flame

There was no final scene, no frozen frame

I just watched it slowly fade away

 

And I've been waiting in the weeds

Waiting for my time to come around again and

Hope is floating on the breeze

Carrying my soul high up above the ground and

I've been keepin' to myself

Knowin' that the seasons are slowly changing

Even though you're with somebody else

He'll never love you like I do

 

I've been biding time with the crows and sparrows

While peacocks prance and strut upon the stage

If finding love is just a dance

Proximity and chance

You will excuse me if I skip the masquerade

 

And I've been waiting in the weeds

Waiting for the dust to settle down along the

Back roads running through the fields

Lying on the outskirts of this lonesome town

And I imagine sunlight in your hair

You're at the county fair

 

You're holding hands and laughing

And now the ferris wheel has stopped

You're swinging on the top

Suspended there with him

 

And he's the darling of the sheik

The flavor of the week is melting

Down your pretty summer dress

Baby, what a mess you're making

 

I've been stumbling through some dark places

Now I'm following the plow

I know I've fallen out of your good graces

It's alright now

 

And I've been waiting in the weeds

Waiting for the summer rain to fall upon the

Wild birds scattering the seeds

Answering the calling of the tide's eternal tune

The phases of the moon

The chambers of the heart

The ebb and dart of small gray

Spiders spinning in the dark

In spite of all the times the web is torn apart

 

And I've been waiting in the weeds

Waiting for the time to come around again and

Hope is floating on the breeze

Carrying my soul high up above the ground and

I've been keepinl to myself

Knowing that the seasons are slowly changing

Even though you're with somebody else

He'll never love you like I do
