  • If you're willing to wait for the love of your life
    Please wait by the line
    And you know dispersive prisms rainbow
    But my native optimism isn't broken by the light

    The idea of life without company fell suddenly
    It crashed through the ceiling on me
    And pinned me to the pine
    And layer upon layer of hope and doubt
    Will crush bones to oil in time

    Are you a pusher or are you a puller?
    I pull the weight towards me
    And I lack the zest of a lemon, looking forward
    Unless I have a woman pushing me

    A canopy of red-billed quelea
    Passed over the blue
    A five hour flock, not one dives down
    To tell you the truth

    As night falls, a quelea crawls
    And whispers on his last wings
    So abundant are we, left alone I shall be
    But a waited phone never rings

    Are you a pusher or are you a puller?
    I pull the weight towards me
    And I lack the zest of a lemon, looking forward
    Unless I have a woman pushing me

    Are you a pusher or are you a puller?
    We could hold hands for fifteen minutes in the sauna
    We could hold hands for a pool length under water
    I can push and pull
    Her

    If you're willing to wait for the love of your life
    Please wait by the line Writer/s: Augustus Figaro Niso Unger-Hamilton, Joe Jerome Newman, Thomas Stuart Green
