because, boy, you know i’m looking for you, but i’m not sure i’ll ever find you.

i’m spending my days watching the different eyes that go by but they all have the wrong angle or the wrong shape or they’re a little too gray instead of the blue that i know you’ll have. there are too many creases where they’ve frowned too many times and are a touch too red from too much alcohol when i know you’ll have at least some idea of moderation. they’re all wrong because they’re not yours.

and i’m spending my nights listening to the different laughs riding the airwaves but they’re all the wrong pitch or on the wrong frequency or they’re a little too hoarse when i know you’ll be all smoke. they’re a little too strained because they don’t find life funny at all and they’re a little too loud to cover the cheap tongue wagging behind them when i know you’re nothing but genuine. they’re making my ears bleed listening to their imitations.

and boy, can’t you see i’m getting tired of flipping through all of copies? i’m waiting to hear you playing your guitar on a rooftop or drinking a whiskey-and-coke in the fog or buying a newspaper and sticking it in your back pocket for later. i’m trying to sniff you out, hunt you down, be patient and wait for you to take the bait.

but, oh, boy, can’t you see? i’m anything but patient.
i’m getting tired of waiting.
{"get me out of this place
'cause I'm stuck in a rut and I can't stomach the taste
my lungs are filling up with dust
I feel bruised and broken with no one left to trust"
--city and colour

all these boys are making me lose some faith in the gender.

Exactly what I'm waiting for...a boy like you described. And it does seem like forever till I find him. Beautiful. :heart:
