lyrics

brown eyes, blink back, braced
i know how to feel afraid
i’ve been forced to change
all to familiar, but wait

why are you looking at me that way?
could it be true that your really listening?

what are you waiting for?
i’ve never seen this before?

addled, armed, amazed
i’m not used to feeling so safe
all of my takers take and take and take and take
but it seems you’re not playing that game

what are you waiting for? (4x)

what are you waiting for?
you’re supposed to scold me with your eyes
you’re supposed to hurt me with your silences
i’ve never seen this before
why aren’t you wearing a disguise?
why aren’t you making empty promises?

could i surrender to your kind face?
could it be true that you’re really genuine?

what are you waiting for?
you’re supposed to scold me with your eyes
you’re supposed to hurt me with your silences
i’ve never seen this before
why aren’t you wearing a disguise?
why aren’t you making empty promises?
what are your waiting for?
you’re supposed to shame and criticize
you’re supposed to blame me for all damages
what are you waiting for?
you’re supposed to scold me with your eyes
you’re supposed to hurt me with your silences
