I've Been Waiting For This Moment For All My Life, Hold On

This song is by Listener and appears on the album Ozark Empire (2005).

Cause, I'm-a do it right this time
Right this time, write this line, write it down, down deep into your mind
I make a difference, I make thoughts happen
I make worlds collide, and I make just enough to survive
All jokes aside. I may of lost a few battles
But this is still war. I used to hand out my tapes
But then I got hungry. the landlord needed money
And I didn't have his funding. so that day I started running
And relied on just my cunning. man, it really wasn't funny
So I moved out to the sunny, California
Shores were the stars are born
Tried to leave it all behind, but one early morning
I went soaring all the way across these states
I hit the road and did some shows right back to la
Now every night I stand and plea for all of you to buy these lines
I've been waiting for this moment all my very short whole life... hold on

I used to hand out my tapes, but then I got hungry
I used to give out my words, but then I needed money

I'll bite the head off a sentence and spit it in the crowd
And if it makes you like me more I'll do it really loud
Hey hey, I say the words, that's what I do, it's all I know
I use them on the road, at my shows, in studios
And I'm leaving in my car, girl
Don't know when I'll be back again
So kiss me twice, and let me go
It's time for me to do some shows
And I'll say these words over eqs beats
While y'all listen to me, this stuff ain't for free
There's writing on the walls and all you have to do is listen
With your eyes and you'll finally see what's missing
See hip hop, it made me say it wrong
Made me spell it wrong
Made me put it in a song
And now everyone thinks that it's really really funny
My music is made by clowns for cars and money
Hair bands turned into grunge bands
Turned into boy bands, turned into rap toy shams
Well don't worry it will find its way without me
But I want for everyone to understand why I'm doubting
I know that there's better things to be sold on
But I've been waiting for this moment for all my life... hold on

And I'm leaving in my car, girl
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh baby, I hate to go
So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Oh baby, I gotta go
