LyricsEdit

will I see you there when that final trumpet blows?
will I see you there when that final trumpet blows?
if I don't see you there, I will run a comb through my hair.
and I will wait.
I will wait.
I will wait.

will you walk on in when the angel summons you?
will you walk on in when the angel summons you?
if I don't see you go, I will let the minions flow.
and I will wait.
I will wait.
I will wait.

down in dealey plaza, the tourists mill about.
down in dealey plaza, the tourists mill about.
and I am far from where we live, and I have not learned how to forgive.
but I will wait.
I will wait.
I will wait.
yeah.
