Waiting For Wednesday

Waiting For Wednesday

Song Notes
At first you think the narrator is waiting for Wednesday because that’s when she thinks her boyfriend is going to tell her goodbye. But by the time the last chorus appears, the tables have turned and she’s in fact waiting to say goodbye to him. It’s really about not knowing whether to stay in a relationship or leave.

Lyrics
Waiting for Wednesday, my stomach doesn’t hurt enough,
pain always is the sign.
Waiting for Wednesday, no proof of mine exists,
so l don’t have to take it back.

Don’t want to show you good-bye,
show you good-bye.
show you good-bye.
show you good-bye.

But you’re waiting for Wednesday.
Waiting for Wednesday.
Waiting for Wednesday, I pray you’ll put me on the spot.
I do believe you, that you’ll love me that you’ll leave me.

What will I do when you come near to me?
you’ll put me on the spot.
You’ve been doing this a long, long time,
not that you’re better than me,
but that you do it a lot.

Now I’m waiting for Wednesday,
waiting for Wednesday,
waiting for Wednesday,
waiting for Wednesday.

I’m gonna show you good-bye,
show you good-bye,
show you good-bye,
show you good-bye.

Now I’m waiting for Wednesday,
you’re back from out of town,
the West is dry, your mind is clear,
and I don’t want to be here,
I don’t want to be here,
I don’t want to be here,
to show you good-bye.

and I’m waiting for Wednesday,
waiting for Wednesday, to show you good-bye.
