While I Was Waiting

I thought about us
And all we’ve been through
And I found myself on a beach
Watching waves was all I could do
To keep from cussing out the stars
Cause I wasn’t sure you knew
I was all ready to apologize
While I was waiting there for you

I thought about us
And all the memories we shared
I saw a tiny dog in a girl’s arms
It looked so cold and scared
And I remembered the moment
I saw you sleeping in my car
After a night of heavy drinking
I couldn’t drive home from the bar

So we stayed there all night
We shared a blanket from the trunk
The next morning we got breakfast
And cause really bad, we stunk
I took you to your parents house
You took a steaming bath all alone
While I waited in your bedroom
And I saw a message on your phone

I thought about you
You had a right to be so upset
I invaded your private life that day
Then felt so much consuming regret
Then I saw you from a distance
You pulled up in your Pink VW bug
I was gonna say I was so so sorry
It turned out you had tried a drug

So we stayed there all night
Shared an afghan in the backseat
The next morning we got breakfast
Then I took you to your street
Cops were at your parents house
They had some unfortunate news
I chose to stop drinking forever
While I was waiting there for you

I chose to stop drinking forever
While I was waiting there for you
