Grizzly Bear While You Wait For The Others

While you wait for the others

To make it all worthwhile

All your useless pretentions

Are weighing on my time

You could beg for forgiveness

As long as you like

Or just wait out the evening

You’ll only leave me dry

Yes, you’ll only leave me dry

So I’ll ask you kindly to make your way

And what was there?

The perfect glare

We all fall through

While you wait on the answers

That I’ll pretend to find

Keeping up with emotions

Still occupies our time

You could hope for some substance

As long as you like

Or just wait out the evening

And always ask me why

Yes, you’ll only leave me dry

So I’ll ask you kindly to make your way

And what was left?

The perfect glare

We all fall through

And all we want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want

Want, want, want, want, want, want

Want, want, want, want

Want, want, want

And what was there?

And what was there?

And what wasn’t there?
