lyrics

You hugged me just a little bit longer than you usually do
You smiled and looked in my eyes, and I looked in your eyes and smiled and thought, “Do I want to?”

We can’t have everything that we hope for
We can’t spend our whole lives alone
But I keep waiting for someone’s sister, someone’s sister to be
Drop dead gorgeous, a published poet, who votes the same way as me

If this were a test you would be doing fine, but it’s not a test
Somewhere there’s a button and either it is or it isn’t pressed

I know I can’t have everything that I hope for
I know I can’t spend my whole life alone
But I keep waiting for someone’s sister, someone’s sister to be
A great musician who don’t like shopping and never turns on the TV

I won’t have everything that I hope for
I won’t spend my whole life alone
But I’ll always be waiting for someone’s sister, someone’s sister to be
A real good kisser who likes long car trips and reads herself to sleep
