What are you waiting for
Wearing out the shore
Under bloodshot skies
And a pair of rolling eyes says that you've been here before
A thousand times or more
Drowning in your lack of tears
And now the coast is clear

A ship is safe at port
But that's not what ships are for
And I'm waiting, yes I'm waiting
Won't you please make up your mind?

What are you waiting for
Staring at the door
It's time to go outside
Are you satisfied with pacing the floor?
A prisoner of the war
Between your heart and mine
Until you come to find

That a ship is safe at port
But that's not what ships are for
And I'm waiting, oh still waiting
Won't you please make up your mind?

So what's it gonna' be?
You're alone and you are free
But freedom's more than knowing how to sail

Come to me
You'll be fine
I am here
And it is time

A ship is safe at port
But that's not what ships are for
And I'm waiting, yes still waiting
Won't you please make up your mind?

What are you waiting for
Wearing out the shore
Under bloodshot skies
Salt water in your eyes says that you've been here before
A thousand times or more
Hoping that the sky will split
If you sit here long enough
