  • I've been waiting for months, waiting for years, waiting for you to change.
    Aw, but there ain't much that's dumber, there ain't much that's dumber
    than pinning your hopes on a change in another.
    And I, yeah I still need you, but what good's that gonna do?
    Needing is one thing, and getting, getting's another.

    So I been sitting around, wasting my time, wondering what you been doing.
    Aw, and it ain't real forgiving, it ain't real forgiving sitting here picturing someone else living.
    And I, yeah I still need you, but what good's that gonna do?
    Needing is one thing, and getting, getting's another.

    I've been hoping for months, hoping for years, hoping I might forget.
    Aw but it don't get much dumber, it don't get much dumber
    than trying to forget a girl when you love her.
    And I, yeah I still need you, but what good's that gonna do?
    Needing is one thing, and getting, getting's another.

    When? When? Why not now? Why not me? Why not me? Writer/s: DAMIAN KULASH, TIMOTHY NORDWIND

  • Sydney from Dallas, TxThe guitar solo is done at 55 mph. Pretty impressive. Also, all of the piano's had to be tuned to play the same note wherever they were struck. All of the guitars and amps were donated specifically for this purpose. And about half of the strings broke after they were played.
