You're everything I thought I wanted as a young girl
Handsome and troubled
Worldly
Wise and misunderstood
They call you a scholar but they don't know the difference
And they call you professor but they don't know the subject
And it's
And it's all the same I suppose when everyone's just living in lies
Oh
God I swear sometimes it's easier to just deny what I know
And why I'm waiting
Then you say

What you want
What you wish
What you crave
You've saved for more than this John and junior
What you've given
How you pray
What this means
What awaits you more than John and junior

Go on
Accuse me of existing in a castle
Go on and say I'll be finally woken and broken
When I'm sorely disappointed with how life really is
How the real world is
But don't you see

You call me a dreamer and I'll call you comfortable
While I'm on my adventure you'll be safe with your ego
And you're hiding beneath the skin of an unlearned warrior
Oh
God
He makes being lost looks so good
And so good is better than nothing at all
But worse than the best will fail
Aand I'm still waiting but you keep saying my child

What you want
What you wish
What you crave
You've saved for more than this John and junior
What you've given
How you pray
What this means
What awaits you more than John and junior

Oh
If you count it'll go by so slow
But if I try then maybe I could follow what I know and why I'm waiting
You still say

What you want
What you wish
What you crave
You've saved for more than this John and junior
What you've given
How you pray
What this means
What awaits you more than John and junior
