Songs About Waiting
Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio?
A nation turns its lonely eyes to you. (Woo, woo, woo)
What's that you say, Mrs. Robinson?
Joltin' Joe has left and gone away.
So I called up the Captain,
'Please bring me my wine'
He said, 'We haven't had that spirit here since 1969'.
And there won't be snow in Africa this Christmastime
The greatest gift they'll get this year is life
Where nothing ever grows, no rain or rivers flow
Do they know it's Christmastime at all?
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
'Til it's gone?
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot.
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
It's not warm when she's away.
It's hard to believe that there's nobody out there
It's hard to believe that I'm all alone
At least I have her love, the city she loves me
Lonely as I am, together we cry.
And I don't understand why I sleep all day
And I start to complain that there's no rain
In the desert you can remember your name
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain.
She asked me to stay and she told me to sit anywhere,
So I looked around and I noticed there wasn't a chair.
Her voice was soft and cool
Her eyes were clear and bright
But she's not there.
'Cause all the dreams you never thought you'd lose
Got tossed along the way
And letters that you never meant to send
Got lost or thrown away.
The pump don't work
'Cause the vandals took the handles.
Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids.
In fact it's cold as hell
And there's no one there to raise them if you did.
She's gone, she's gone
Oh why, oh why
I better learn how to face it
We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun,
But the wine and the song
Like the seasons have all gone.
I want to run through the halls of my high school
I want to scream at the top of my lungs
I just found out there's no such thing as the real world
Just a lie you've got to rise above.
There is no future
In England's dreaming.
Les yeux sans visage, eyes without a face
Got no human grace your eyes without a face
