Courtney Barnett – Small Talk lyrics
[Verse 1]
Do you have any siblings?
I got a brother, Blake, he’s four years older than me
And I guess he always will be
Yeah he’s clever and he’s got a cool girlfriend (hey Hayley)
Aw but wait, now that they’re engaged so
I hope they have kids so I can be a cool aunty, yeah

[Chorus 1]
I’m waiting here for you
I’m waiting here for you

[Verse 2]
What’d you think of the ultimate ending?
I fast forward, get busy pretending that, well I’ve seen everything
Can I get you anything? A soda? Campari? With lemon? Well, you got it
I got better things to do than shave my legs, my pits, oh yeah

[Chorus 2]
I’m waiting here for you
I’m waiting here for you
I’m looking ‘cross the room and hoping that you’re looking too, yeah

[Verse 3]
Do you have any siblings?
You got a sister, yeah, she’s a detective
Well I'll bet she’s got some good stories
I gotta go but I hope we can keep in touch
I like very much being here with you
But you see, all this small talk is killing me, yeah

[Chorus 3]
I’m waiting here for you
I’m waiting here for you
I’m looking ‘cross the room and hoping that you’re looking too
I’m waiting here for you
I’m waiting here for you
I’m looking ‘cross the room and hoping that you’re looking too, yeah
I’m waiting here for you
I’m waiting here for you
I’m looking ‘cross the room and hoping that you’re looking too
I’m waiting here for you
I’m waiting here for you
I’m looking ‘cross the room and hoping that you’re looking too
