Waiting for Wednesday

17 Aug

This is one of my favourite Lisa Loeb songs.  It’s such a cheerful tune and yet, when you read the lyrics, there’s a decidedly sad tone.  The girl really is waiting for Wednesday because she thinks she’s ready to break up with the boy she’s with.  She loves him but he seems to bring her down…a lot.  It’s a cliché but love isn’t enough.  Sometimes the best thing to do is to step away and put oneself first.

Are you waiting for a certain Wednesday to say goodbye to something in your life?

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

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, I’m 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
I’m waiting for Wednesday, to show you good-bye
I don’t want to be here, to show you good-bye
Waiting for Wednesday, I don’t want to be here.
Waiting for Wednesday, to show you good-bye, to show you good-bye
