about

Beth has a nagging fixation with the memory of a lover, found and departed. She conjures his figure in the Waiting Room's empty chairs.

lyrics

It was four in the morning and I wanted you still
Your eyes were closed
I had sampled your skin with the touch of my hands
There was no one to witness the look on my face
As I watched you there
It was four in the morning and I wanted you still

Then I watched you go, away
I watched you go, and step onto a plane
The time was gone, there was nothing to say
So I watched you go, away.

We succumbed to the dinner and laughed with the boy
The room was warm
I served smoked conversation and silent intent
There was no one to witness your hand in my hair
As you tried to care
We succumbed to the dinner and laughed with the boy

Then I watched you go, away
I watched you go, and step onto a plane
The time was gone, there was nothing to say
So I watched you go, away.
