Everyone's Waiting
by Missy Higgins



I know all the lines to say
the part I’m expected to play
but in the reflection I am worlds away

as I put my costume on
eyelashes one by one
been doing this so long I can tie the knot
behind my back

And everyone’s waiting
but it’s getting harder to hear what my heart is saying
cos everyone’s waiting

Just swallow and breathe, she says
Remember this ain’t for you it’s for them
And all of those painful lessons you’ve had to learn
you gotta use them now or never

Cos everyone’s waiting
but it’s getting harder to hear
what my heart keeps saying
Turn it off, I wanna turn it all off

When everyone’s waiting
it makes it harder to hear what my heart keeps saying
Turn it off, I wanna turn it all off

but everyone’s waiting
I hear that answers appear when you just stand still
but make it all, how do you make it all stop
when everyone’s waiting?
