Barely Just Missed You

verse 1

I’m just sitting here wondering what you’re doing right now
probably sleeping


chorus 1

And I don’t wait for no one
It’s the price I paid
the exception is made
and no one waits for me


verse 2

remember the fireworks in Berlin
remember that time I sang to you in a dormitory in Tokoyo
I don’t beg, I don’t plead
and I get
nothing


Chorus 2

And I don’t wait for no one
it’s the price I pay
the exception is made
almost every day
and no one waits for me
I’m not waiting for anyone anymore
and no one waits for
no one waits for me


Bridge

On the first of May I waited for you
Like that time on the curb
or that time in the cuffs
under the shady tree by myself playing saxophone
saying
I’m gonna quit tomorrow
I’m gonna quit tomorrow
it’s a bargain if you get it right
got off the flight
and no one was there
all that time so high,
I just barely, barely, barely
barely just missed you
