Guided By Voices – If We Wait lyrics

There's some food upon the table boys
And if you have ever seen me flying
Then you know that I am weak
And you are free to take me downstairs
Away from cares

I'll be with you in the morning boys
'Cause you know that if we wait for our time
We'll all be dead

Oh, now I've bored you cryin' my life away
Don't I know it, always the things I say
Always too far

If you could be anything that you wanna be
Do you think that you would be who you see in the mirror
If I look long enough, my face would start to change
If I look close enough, I'll take away the pain

Oh, I don't care anymore, anymore
Anymore, anymore, anymore

I'll be with you in the morning boys
'Cause you know that if we wait for our time
Then we'll be there
