I Will Wait for You Lyrics

2017 Off-Broadway
Hundred Days the Musical - I Will Wait for You Lyrics


SHAUN:
I am in my father's car
In front of the Lutheran church
Where I spend most days
The bald patch on my father's head
Gets in the car and drives away
This church has seen me born
Has seen my parents go away
When they lost their faith and all the friends that came with it
I drink orangeade
In the church basement everyday
I breathe the same mold

And I just wait for you
It's all that I can do
Here I wait for you

ALL:
A-oo-a-oo-a-oo-a-oo-a
Hey!

ABIGAIL:
I'm in my living room
It's after 9
I'm waiting for my father
He's out with his drinking guys
I don't have any friends
I'm making friends
Out of cabinets and chairs
We comb each other's hair

And every day at school
I choose a new name
I'm lonely where I'm living
I'm making it a game
I make a thousand friends
I live with friends
When I finally move to Queens
And I don't miss my father
I miss the cabinets
I miss the chairs

ABIGAIL & SHAUN: (simultaneous)
And every time we move I look for your face
Here I am alone
The game is not to notice
In the church basement
That I'm still in the wrong place
Everyday I breathe the same mold
I make a thousand friends
And everywhere I go
But none of my friends
I look around
Can tell that I'm alone
To find your face

And when I feel you closer I tell the cabinets
I tell the chairs
And I just wait for you
It's all that I can do
Here I wait for you-a-oo-a-oo-a-oo-a-oo-a

ALL:
And so I've been blessed
I say yes and yes
I touch with my hands
Their old happiness
Thank you to dad
I should be grateful
It's more than enough
It's so much

(simultaneous)
And so I've been blessed
And so I've been blessed
I say yes and yes
I say yes and yes
I touch with my hands
And yes
Their old happiness
And yes

Thank you for this
I should be grateful
It's more than enough
It's so much

But I just wait for you
It's all that I can do
Here I wait for you-a-oo-a-oo-a-oo-a-oo-a
A silver thread connects
Our bellies and our chests
I'll live once we have met-ee-a-ee-a-ee-a-ee-a-e
Hey-ay, hey-ay, hey-ay, hey-ay
HEY!
