Another Is Waiting
by The Avett Brothers



It's a fake, it's a hoax
It's a nowhere road where no one goes
Anywhere, anyhow
Where you follow when your heart rate down
She's a rose, she's a queen
But she's starin' at a magazine
In the dark, on the path
Where they doctor every photograph

[Chorus]
Another is waiting
She isn't saying anything

If you care, if you like
Well, I'm standing in the lantern light
With our weapons and our love
And I use them both to cover up

[Chorus]

But I love you and I care
So you got to get off that conveyor belt
If I could
I would come right in and take you off myself

It's a fake, it's a con
The nature of the road you're on
Lets me see your skeleton
Well before your life is done

[Chorus]
