Programme Notes

I wrote Waiting…in Three Chords because of having to deal with the frustration of waiting for meaningless life stuff to play itself out. I went through various life scenarios where people have to wait – the last verse’s being the most poignant. Something that I have never had to deal with so I therefore had nothing to complain about.

Sort of a mundane theme for a song but the way it played itself out, writing and recording wise, it ended up being my favourite song from the I Can See You album. For some reason, every time I hear it (especially Felicity’s singing), my heart just melts.

Lyrics

Waiting by the phone
For messages and codes
Pretty pigments
Don’t mask the fact
One can do way more with one’s life

Sitting in a doctor’s exam room
Looking at the visage in hotel’s lift
Trying to distract to shorten time
Don’t mask the fact
One can do way more with one’s life

Waiting
Anticipating
Anxiety makes it feel longer
Is it true pain?
Or is it being alone?

Gentle warm breeze through the sun
Multi-coloured flora
Comfort’ble bench at busless stop
Don’t mask the fact
One can do way more with one’s life

Moral support from mom
A joke to distract from bro
Waiting by the phone for word on him
Don’t mask the fact
One can do way more with one’s life
