Submit Corrections Cancel

You said you'd like to see me again
And then it all unraveled
I heard that you were seeing someone
Not such an insignificant other

It seems my moves were far too swift in life
Some things are worth the efforts
I touched the place where your hair had been
I pull on the shirt that you left 'round mine

Defacing the pictures of famous people on the train
Standing by the monument, just waiting for the rain

In my wallet with your photo booth smile
And I, wearing my waterproof jacket
Posterity has hold of us now
Am I just waiting for the next chapter?

We'll sleep tonight in separate towns
At dusk we see our disparate futures
I tore a sock to bind up your golden hair
We found a hotel bar to sustain our last night in vain

Defacing pictures of famous people on the train
Standing by the monument, just waiting for the rain
I'm just passing my time with you on my mind
I'm just passing my time

No more late night calls
Where tear drops fall
No more late night calls
Where tear drops fall, tear drops fall

Standing by the monument, just waiting for the rain
I'm just passing my time with you on my mind
I'm just wasting my precious time

I'm just wasting my time with you on my mind
