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 & Junior
What you've giv'n, how you pray, what this means,
What awaits you more than
John & 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 your'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, and 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 & Junior
What you've giv'n, how you pray, what this means,
What awaits you more than
John & 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 & Jr.
What you giv'n, how you pray, what this means, what awaits you
More than John and Jr.
