I hope that you like it in your little motel
And I hope that the suite sleeps and suits you well
Well, I can see it as time and a sight through smell, and
That's why it's nice to be by yourself

[Chorus]
Cause that's what I'm waiting for
That's what I'm waiting for
That's what I'm waiting for, aren't I?
That's what I'm waiting for
That's what I'm waiting for
That's what I'm waiting for, darlin'

We treat mishaps like sinking ships, and
I know that I don't want to be out to drift
Well, I can see it in your eyes, like I taste your lips, and
They both tell me that we're better than this

[Chorus]

We trade *** for tat, like that for this
And I don't think that there was an insult that was missed
I can see it in your eyes, like I taste your lips, and
I'm very sorry

[Chorus]

It rained, over the remains of a shooting star
Landed directly on our broke-down little car
Before that we had made a wish
That we would be missed
If one or the other just did not exist

[Chorus]

That's what we're waiting for
That's what we're waiting for
That's what we're waiting for, aren't we?
