“we used to wait”.

November 29, 2010

words from the wise.

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
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 left standing in the wilderness downtown

Now our lives are changing fast
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 walkin around
We used to wait
All those wasted lives in the wilderness downtown

Ooooo we used to wait
Sometimes it never came
Ooooo we used to wait
Sometimes it never came
Ooooo we used to wait
Still moving through the pain

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
Hope that something pure can last

Ooooo we used to wait
Sometimes it never came
Ooooo we used to wait
Sometimes it never came
Ooooo we used to wait
Still moving through the pain

We used to wait for it
Now we’re screaming
I used to wait for it
Hear my voice screaming

Wait for it

arcade fire. the band could honestly sing the songtrack to my life. a powerful song, we used to wait, reminds us that there was a time in life where our hearts were patient. a time in life where we waited for romance. a time in life where we slowed down and waited for love to find us.

only my opinion, but this song sings to me and reminds me that true love – the kind that you want to write old fashion love letters about – is worth waiting for.  worth waiting for “hope that something pure can last”.
