mountain goats – wait for you lyrics


when it came time to wait for you
i took the bus to malibu
found a cafe by the ocean
watched the sky for signs

and a rainbow in the west
wrapped its coils around the earth like a serpent
i felt like i was going to suffocate

but i knew this was not the day you would finally come my way
but i waited all the same
watched the water through the window

and a rainbow in the west
held its head beneath the waves and grew dimmer
nothing anyone could do i suppose
