I’m waiting
for the knock at the door
for the ring of the phone

Waiting for something
waiting for anything

Then the negotiations start
the email back and forth
the compromise

Will it happen tomorrow?
will it happen the next day?
what about the day after that?

I need them to come now
I want them to come now
please please please

I would do anything
to make the earth spins faster
to reach up and drag the sun through the heavens
tomorrow, and tomorrow and tomorrow
