lyrics

There is the waltz in waiting
A sort of serenade
Put your change down in the tray
And wait for love to come back

The gate by the road is always open
Even the birds know their place
Saint Peter is pushing to stay awhile longer
Good thing you're still awake

Hang on tight and dance
You can stand where the other's stand
Collect yourself from this foolishness
And hang on tight and

Let the falls come and rush straight over
Forget what brought you and if you're headed straight
Calm water will be here next summer
I'm sure that's where you'll get your way

Hang on tight and dance
You can stand where the other's stand
Collect yourself from this foolishness
And hang on tight and

Did you dig yourself into the earth
Or were you planted by another's hand
The almanac says you were due in June
But you're still waiting, aren't you?

You might just think of me
