It's a rat trap
it's a dead end
it's a bull's eye
it's a fake friend

it's a blank check
it's a free ride
it's a dead end
on the other side

but I don't mind waiting for the sunshine
been drowning in the rain
but don't you know
I can hold my breath for a long time
...waiting for you

it's a stacked deck
it's a big joke
it's a phone booth
and you're flat broke

it's a big lie
it's a blank ____
it's a big smile
when you're so mad

but I don't mind waiting for the sunshine
been drowning in the rain
but don't you know
I can hold my breath for a long time
...waiting for you

I've been waiting for the sunshine
oh yeah, I've been waiting for the sunshine
yeah, I've been waiting the sunshine
I can hold my breath for a long time
I can hold my breath for a long time
I can hold my breath for a long time
