The Waiter

The Waiter

G. Wendell & A. Harley

 

You graduate with your degree,

to work at the restaurant down the street.

And you tell yourself it’s only temporary for the summertime.

Then the years just came and went.

and your ambitions have all been spent.

So I’m drinking my life away at a bar somewhere called “thataway”

so one more for the road tonight then carry me home

 

I’m just a waiter what else can I do?

service with a smile and I’ll be right with you.

And I’m waiting on you as I’m waiting for my own life to change.

So I can stop living day to day.

 

Mark left here, now he’s a star, while I’m still singing at the local bars.

So finally the last tables gone and as we’re closing up the restaurant,

I hear one round for the staff tonight; you gave it your all.

 

I’m just a waiter what else can I do?

service with a smile and I’ll be right with you.

And I’m waiting on you as I’m waiting for my own life to change.

So I can stop living day to day.

 

I’m building strength to over come adversity.

Throw the apron in cause I don’t want to be in the making,

of my own tragedy

 

I’m just a waiter what else can I do service with a smile and I’ll be right with you.

 

I’m just a waiter what else can I do, service with a smile and I’ll be right with you.

And I’m waiting on you as I’m waiting for my own life to change.

So I can stop living day to day

We were meant for something more, we were meant for something more.

We were meant for something more…

So we can stop living day to day.
