  • Sunday morning going slow
    I'm talking to the radio
    Clothes and records on the floor
    Memories of the night before
    Out in club-land having fun
    And now I´m hiding from the sun
    Waiting for a visitor
    Though no-one knows I'm here for sure

    [Chorus]
    Dancing laughing
    Drinking loving
    And now I'm all alone
    In bedsit land
    My only home

    I think it's time to cook a meal
    To fill the emptiness I feel
    Spent my money going out
    I've nothing I'm left without
    Clean my teeth and comb my hair
    Look for something new to wear
    Start the nightlife over again
    Kid myself I'm having fun

    [Chorus]

    Look out from my window view
    I've really nothing else to do
    Read a book and write a letter
    Mother, things are getting better
    Watch the mirror count the lines
    The battle scars of all the good times
    Look around and I can see
    A thousand people just like me

    [Chorus: x2]

    I'm waiting for something
    I'm only passing time Writer/s: DAVID JAMES BALL, MARC ALMOND
