From the album The Lavender Album

Lyrics

Green Light

You’re waiting for a hero
But see, I’m just an everyman
With quite the farmer’s tan

You’re searching for a model
But these scars all across my face
Announce I’m out of place

You’re waiting for the prom king
But see, I wasn’t popular
I was the king of nerds

You’re looking for a rock star
But see, I’m barely five foot eight
Underpaid overweight

Someday I know my prince will come
Someday I know my ship will come
Someday I know my time will come
But ‘til I find the one
I’ll ride alone

Sitting at a red light
I’m just pissing my life away
Missing you night and day

Waiting for a green light
I’m just hanging out in the cold
Wasting time getting old

Someday I know my prince will come
Someday I know my ship will come
Someday I know my time will come
But ‘til I find the one
I’ll ride alone

Oh, since the day you left me
I have been searching far and wide
For someone to respect me
For one to make me whole inside

For someone to kiss me
For someone to fix me
For someone who’ll miss me
When I die
