Waiting for the Mail

This song is by The Balancing Act and appears on the album Three Squares and a Roof (1987).

Words by Steve Wagner. Music by Willie Aron and Steve Wagner.

A prophet knocked upon my door
I let him stand there in the sun
As he left he turned and shouted
"Stop me if you've heard this one"

I'm walking up the street to your house
And all the dogs just look away
Somewhere there are bones beneath us
But I don't ask and they don't say

If the cars and criminals sing in your ear
If you think the signpost will never appear
That's when it's near

A postman in a suit of mail
Delivers me another joke
There's people somewhere doing something
While I sit thinking in the smoke

Still this hope just keeps returning
And weeks push up through the concrete
In the face of all this folly
There are still some eyes to meet

If the cars and criminals sing in your ear
If you think the signpost will never appear
That's when it's near
