Song Description

The waiting room of any hospital is a lonely and fearful place, in which you have no control over the events affecting your life and the lives of your loved ones...

Lyrics

The Waiting Room

(Verse 1)
A Styrofoam cup of hospital coffee
Another night of not enough sleep
While back home on the table
Sits a stack of unopened mail
Some unpaid bills that'll just have to keep

(Chorus 1)
'Cause here in this waiting room
Time lies suspended
Between hope and gloom
You learn to dance to someone else's tune
Won't you join me on the dance floor...
Of this waiting room

(Verse 2)
You move to a song
That you've heard once too often
Like perfect strangers holding hands
Through the moments you remember
And the ones you hope end up forgotten
You find a way to hold on to whatever you can

(Chorus 2)
'Cause here in this waiting room
Lives are upended
And some end too soon
You're forced to dance to someone else's tune
Won't you join me on the dance floor...
Of this waiting room

(Bridge)
It's a bitter pill to swallow
To hear them say she might not make it through
And I can't stop my mind from racing
Or my eyes from looking hollow
Or my hands from feeling helpless
No matter what I do

(Ending chorus)
'Cause here in this waiting room
There's no silver bullet
There's no silver spoon
Instead you dance to someone else's tune
Won't you join me on the dance floor...
Yeah, you'll find me on the dance floor...
So, please come meet me on the dance floor...
Of this waiting room
