DONT YOU WAIT

Ahab's daughter taught him how to feel

She settled on him like winter on the hill

When he tried to melt through her lies

And catch the woman in her sighs

She opens up her eyes and leaves him naked in the bed

 

How to love, how to love and how to kill

The memories that get between the words you say

And who you want to be?

 

He won't come to you unless you let him 

Go on and get him

Don't let him go.

He won't come to you unless you let him

Go on and get him

Honey don't you wait until he's gone.

 

You lose yourself counting lines

On the road through ponderosa pines

And how much quiet would you find if he were by your side?

Then again sometimes it's nice

To fall and hurt your leg and cry

And not to have to crawl back home with needles in your spine.

 

How to love, how to love and how to kill

The memories that get between the words you say

And who you want to be?

 

He won't come to you unless you let him 

Go on and get him

Don't let him go.

He won't come to you unless you let him

Go on and get him

Honey don't you wait until he's gone.
