Annie Waits

Original Artist: Ben Folds

And so
Annie waits, Annie waits, Annie waits
For a call
From a friend
The same
Its the same
Was it always the same?
Annie waits for the last time

The clock never stops, never stops, never waits
Shes growing old
Its getting late
And so he forgot, he forgot
Maybe not
Maybe hes been seriously hurt
Would that be worse?

Headlights crest the hill
Shadows pass her by and out of sight
Annie sees her dreams:
Friday bingo, pigeons in the park

Annie waits for the last time
Just the same as the last time

Annie says "You see this is why Id rather be alone."

And so
Annie waits, Annie waits, Annie waits
For a call
From a friend
The same
Its the same
Was it always the same?
Annie waits as the last...

Headlights crest the hill
Who will be the one for evermore?
(ooh ooh)
Annie, I could be
If were both still lonely when were old

Annie waits for the last time
Just the same as the last time
Annie waits for the last time
Just the same as the last time

Annie waits
But not for me
