Oh Elijah, don't make me wait
Nobody's winning
The sharks are swimming in the red

Oh Elijah, don't make me wait
While you are sleeping
My mind goes creaking down the hall

Slow down, dilettante
So I can limp beside you
And follow in your house too

Hang on, street savant
My bank in my back pocket
How far you think it'll take us?

You're like a party I heard through a wall
I'm always watching you through a keyhole
Let's not forget, let's not forget
Let's not forget, why we crawled here

Oh Elijah, don't make me wait
I got no patience for an estrangement, anyway

Wake up, avenue C
Your hometown is still sleeping

You're like a party I heard through a wall
Invite me
But I'm always watching you through a keyhole
Let's not forget, let's not forget
Let's not forget, where we crawled from

Oh Elijah, don't make me wait
What is so pressing
You can't undress me anyway
