Angel Olsen - The Waiting Lyrics




Here you come along
I take a breath and remind myself that I too can be strong
Thought I was cool
Turns out I'm a fool
Clearly you've proved me wrong
I didn't know what I was missing when I was alone
And now I'm fruitlessly waiting for
Someone not thinking before they start rushing to my door
Someone to run not walk
Oh, someone to sing not talk
Oh, no hesitation at all
Sometimes I need you to be the one to call

Well I'm lost in my thoughts
They tumble ahead
Over and over again
Yeah it's true
Just take a look at what's been done to me
I've wasted time to ponder
Here I am now all Alice in Wonder
Partly I do this to myself, but why can't you see
The gesture is small, but know that it means the world to me
Oh, forgive me for wanting, I'm only learning
I've forgiven myself now, there's no returning
I want to be the one who knows the best way
I want to be the one who knows the best way
I want to be the one who knows the best way to love you

But now I'm foolishly waiting for
Someone not thinking before they start rushing to my door
Someone to run not walk
Oh, someone to sing not talk
Oh, no hesitation at all
Sometimes I need you to be the one to call
I need you to be the one
I need you to be the one
I need you to be the one

    Too much life in her songs.

  5. Hannah Salmon

    Does this sound like a David Bowie song to anyone else? In a great way though :)

  6. Brenda Perez

    3:09 sounds like the ending of santana's samba pa ti

  7. Conor Phillips

    The Beatles left this song off Rubber Soul.

  13. Mynighboirwolf

    Candace is my girlfriend

  14. Get a calculator and fix yourself

    I like how her voice sounds in this song compared to her new stuff.

  15. Kelly Nguyen

    what genre would this fall under? i know country but is there a more specific one for songs like this bc i love this sound

    abraxaspreface

    Kelly Nguyen I’d say this album is more folk-y than country, but a lot of this album can be described as psych-folk. If you like this, try checking out Joanna Newsom or Nico.

  16. King Waz

    Thanks Unthony Subtano

  17. Jolly Roger

    help me

  18. Soaribb

    reminds Pasty Cline

  25. renny sims

  26. Tiamike's Ideal

    Anyone late on the Fantano train?

  27. Ricardo Morales

    Do yourselves a favor and go listen to an ACTUALLY good song, Bongsugi by Rose Motel, a korean band. You won`t get a word unless you know korean, but it´s totally worth it.

    michael surname

    Listened to it there, still prefer The Waiting. To each their own, I guess.

    We'reAll GoingToDie

    Ricardo Morales Move to Korea, and fuck Korean sissies you faggot. This song shits all over your fuckboi recommendation. 2 years later I hope ur awake and over the Koreanfag phase.

  28. Ricardo Morales

    One of the best songs of the decade?! What.The.FUCK are you talking about man? Is it me or this song comes close to unraveling at several moments? Jesus, what is this?

    renny sims

    agreed, good but not even close to a highlight of the decade

    faye lure

    Ricardo Morales why are you even here dude?

    Ricardo Morales

    cuz liethony hypetano deceived me

    fuzzypeach

    The beauty is in the almost unravelling. But Best song of the decade is clearly ' shut up kiss me' or High Five.

  29. ᴠᴧᴨᴛᴧᴃᴌᴧcᴋ

    I wonder how long it takes for the comment section to recover from this blow.

    John H.

    Years... maybe never.

  30. Lô Ô

    anem viu

  31. Sam Barber

    This draws a fair Roy Orbison comparison

  32. Petja Labović

    fantano wasnt fucking around. this is great

  33. Yamaa Aslamy

    God dammit Fantano.

  34. All3X

    Time for melon man to cut his limbs off

  37. TheMetfan81

    LIEthony OVERRATano

    andersondb0

    For sure not one of the best songs of the decade though

    Hb Rhh

    Albin Lundholm

    But it is one of the best songs of the decade

  38. DJ L00dBoi

    F A N T A N O B O Y S

  41. Julie Delpy's nipples

    thanks Fantano

    pinche gringo

    Thanks fantabo for telling us what's cool. Not thanks Angel Olsen for the music and being cool enough to allow fantabo and his merry men to rub dicks online. Fantamo and his opinion forever!

    batboy

    I'm happy he reminded me of this song

    CarEdy23

    do you also insult spotify when it recommends songs to you?

  42. Dozenal Tauist

    Started listening to her songs again and got reminded why I had such fascination for her and her music before. Nothing is changed, it has the same magical appeal. What a divine artist Angel is!

  43. Isa Altink

    Well, i'm lost in this song, the words tumble in my head, over and over again <3

  44. Dale Walker

    "I want to be
    the one who knows the best way
    to love you."

  45. Michael Bravo

    Here you come along
    I take a breath and remind myself that I too can be strong
    Thought I was cool
    Turns out I'm a fool
    Clearly you've proved me wrong
    I didn't know what I was missing when I was alone

    And now I'm fruitlessly waiting for someone not thinking
    Before they start rushing to my door
    Someone to run not walk
    Someone to sing not talk
    Oh, no hesitation at all
    Sometimes I need you to be the one to call

    Well, I'm lost in my thoughts
    They tumbled ahead
    Over and over again
    Yeah, it's true
    Just take a look at what's been done to me

    Here I am, oh, Alice in wonder
    Partly I do this to myself
    But why can't you see
    The gesture is small
    But know that it means the world to me
    Forgive me for wanting
    I'm only learning life
    Forgiven myself and now there's no returning
    I want to be the one who knows the best way

    Someone to run not walk
    Someone to sing not talk
    Oh, no hesitation at all
    Sometimes I need you to be the one to call
    I need you to be the one
