lyrics

The bus don’t come til early in the morning,
So what are you waiting for?
The train don’t come til early in the evening,
So what are you crying for?

Your man done left you with a baby in the oven
and you’re crying and you’re dying
cause your folks been loving
that you left the house with a fella
even though they’d never tell ya
They were happy to see ya go.

Plane don’t stop unless the engine’s stalling,
So what are you praying for?
Taxi won’t come unless you wave and call him,
So what are you standing for?

Your man done left you with a baby in the oven
and you’re crying and you’re dying
cause your folks been loving
that you left the house with a fella
even though they’d never tell ya
They were happy to see ya go.

Your man won’t come unless you try and call him,
So what are you quiet for?
The future won’t change unless the past is called in,
So what are you waiting for?

The rent’s late, the power’s off, the water’s gone,
So you walk the streets at night to pay the bills,
And even though the life will kill you one minute at a time,
But isn’t that how we all die?
Your family doesn’t know what you’re doing to survive
but if they did they’d probably rather hear a lie.
