WE USED TO WAIT - Arcade Fire

  • I used to write,
    I used to write letters I used to sign my name
    I used to sleep at night
    Before the flashing lights settled deep in my brain
    But by the time we met
    By the time we met the times had already changed
    So I never wrote a letter
    I never took my true heart I never wrote it down
    So when the lights cut out
    I was lost standing in the wilderness downtown
    Now our lives are changing fast
    Now our lives are changing fast
    Hope that something pure can last
    Hope that something pure can last
    It seems strange
    How we used to wait for letters to arrive
    But what's stranger still
    Is how something so small can keep you alive
    We used to wait
    We used to waste hours just walking around
    We used to wait
    All those wasted lives in the wilderness downtown
    oooo we used to wait
    oooo we used to wait
    oooo we used to wait
    Sometimes it never came
    (oooo we used to wait)
    Sometimes it never came
    (oooo we used to wait)
    Still moving through the pain
    (oooooo)
    I'm gonna write a letter to my true love
    I'm gonna sign my name
    Like a patient on a table
    I wanna walk again gonna move through the pain
    Now our lives are changing fast
    Now our lives are changing fast
    Hope that something pure can last
    Hope that something pure can last
    oooo we used to wait
    oooo we used to wait
    oooo we used to wait
    Sometimes it never came
    (oooo we used to wait)
    Sometimes it never came
    (oooo we used to wait)
    Still moving through the pain
    (oooooo) anekatips
    we used to wait (x3)
    We used to wait for it
    We used to wait for it
    Now we're screaming sing the chorus again
    We used to wait for it
    We used to wait for it
    Now we're screaming sing the chorus again
    I used to wait for it
    I used to wait for it
    Hear my voice screaming sing the chorus again
    Wait for it (x3)
