Death Cab For Cutie – Wait lyrics

Every town has a diner
Where I'll meet you, and your friends too.
Things are just a bit nicer over some coffee;
You can tell me all about your day.
I don't know much about you,
Not that I want to,
Not that I want to.
Sometimes I can't escape from my room so excuse me,
I'll be just a little late.

You will wait for me,
You will wait for me

Every town has a corner,
Where I'll see you and your friends too;
Hanging out looking cool,
Saying the same things over and over (again).
Sometimes we all feel stupid,
We say the wrong things;
You're not the only one.
Sometimes we all get left behind
In a race of style,
It's a dumb thing.
You will wait for me
You will wait for me
You will wait for me
You will wait for me
