The Waiting Room

Album: Today Was A Good Day (2019)
  • Never knew that I needed you
    Until you just arrived
    And I found a lifeline
    In those big brown eyes
    When you found something you liked
    Well you gave it to me
    Then you gazed out the window
    Of my passenger seat

    But nothing lasts forever I wish it did

    I’d wait forever in this waiting room
    Because I know I can’t leave here without you
    I’d stay forever in this waiting room
    But I know you can’t be here anymore

    On my happiest of days
    We would swim in the sea
    And you knew you swam better
    So you stayed close to me
    In that single bed hotel
    You slept on the floor and I watched you breathing
    Couldn’t love you anymore

    Then something inside you changed
    The hair upon your head it turned to grey
    And I could see you were in pain
    Though if you could I know you’d never say

    On the day the vet walked in
    And told me it was time
    I looked into your big brown eyes
    And you looked back at mine

    I loosened your collar
    And I cried and I cried
    And I thanked you for friendship
    And your years by my side

    I told you you were good
    The best that there’d been
    And I watched for your last breath
