Not Waitin' Around
Words & Music by Mike Maimone
(c) 2005

The lights are on in Cleveland,
I like that building right across the street.
From the 26th floor I'm looking down,
that would be quite a fall.
Well lately I've been wondering
if life's too short - or long.
And, do these windows open,
or do I have to smash one out?

I'd soar like snowflakes dancing 'round the nighttime sky so high
And drift down to the square
drink 'til I'm not there
hop a train to anywhere...
when I forgot how to care (I say)

I'm not waitin' around, I'm not waitin' around
I'm just trying to bide my time.
I'm not waitin' around, I'm not waitin' around
I'll be getting by just fine.
Now would you please step to the side,
you're blockin' the TV.
And they're about to preview the next episode.

The sun is up in Portland,
I need a new head, this one is killing me.
From the edge of my bed I'm looking down;
that would be quite a fall.
Well lately I've been wondering
just what's right and wrong.
And what the hell did i do last night,
'cause this is not my room.

I drove all night with Cali' sounds ringing in my ears
and crashed down on the shore
woke up and drank some more
I walked the ocean floor
makin' my way to Singapore

I'm not waitin' around, I'm not waitin' around
I'm just trying to bide my time.
I'm not waitin' around, I'm not waitin' around
I'll be getting by just fine.
Now would you please step to the side,
you're blockin' the TV.
And they're about to preview the next episode.
