A Better Way. For Parkland


I’m Waiting for a Text from You

Tonight I was playing around with my guitar, and this song came to me. I decided to go ahead and do a quick recording of it.


Lyrics and Guitar Chords/tabs for I’m Waiting for a Text from You

G                                  C
I’m waiting for a text from you
G                                     D
I’m waiting for a text from you
G                       C
You might think I got something better to do
G                                D                                 G
But I’m sitting here waiting for a text from you
C                                                G
I’m looking at my phone every 8 seconds or so
C                                                               G                                     D
Maybe I turned the sound way down, I mean you never know.
C                                             G
I got nothing to do, and I got nowhere to go

They say that life goes by so fast, but right now it’s too slow


It’s funny how just typing a few words and pressing send
Can brighten up my whole day help me feel okay again
‘m feeling kind of down and kind of need a friend
I need something to lift me out of this stuck place I’m in

    On song: Nice countryish sounds. Your voice seemed higher than usual, which was funny.
    On message: too be honest, people who do that kinda scare me. Maybe I play too many video games to be that bored…
