“No voice to calm my rainy head”



Song for the Waiting

by Aron Wright


There’s no straight road

Tonight to take me home

To lay me in my lover’s bed

There’s no good way

Tonight to make me okay

No voice to calm

My rainy head


It’s not the road

It’s not the miles

Or being alone

That tells my heart

She should be aching

The danger’s in

The danger’s in

The danger’s in the waiting


I see my life well rehearsed

And it bores my mind

It’s like a show

I’ve seen a thousand times before

I see my life in reverse and it scares me inside

I see all the ways

I should be giving more


It’s not the road

It’s not the miles

Or being alone

That tells my heart

She should be aching

The danger’s in

The danger’s in

The danger’s in the waiting


The night is warm but lonely

I should be crawling in

You’re fast asleep but I am waiting


The days are so unholy

You make me right again

The night is long

I’ll be waiting
