​Wait a While

This song is by The Hold Steady and appears on the album Teeth Dreams (2014).

Original video
I'm sure they'll come around and ask you to the movies
That decision is yours to make
Another boyfriend isn't going to make you happy
I'm sorry, maybe you should take a break

All last weekend you spent crying in the bathroom
What happened?
This just shouldn't be so hard

Once they hear you've got a broken heart
They're going to come around and try to make you smile
Little girl you're going to rush right in
Why don't you wait a while?

Once they hear they got an open shot
They're going to come around and try to make you smile
Why don't you wait a while?
Why don't you wait a while?

I'm sure they'll come up in the parking lots at parties
You know you don't have to accept
Collecting boyfriends isn't such a healthy hobby
I'm sorry, but there's other words than yes

Once they hear you've got a broken heart
They're going to come around and try to make you smile
Little girl you're going to rush right in
Why don't you wait a while?
Why don't you wait a while?

And the truth, yeah sure it hurts
But the lies just make it worse
The attention feels euphoric
But the whispers will destroy it
And a rep is such a tough thing to reverse

Once they hear you got a broken heart
They're going to come around and try to make you smile
Little girl you're going to rush right in
Why don't you wait a while?

Talking loud, making eyes
Like you're a little bit wild
Why don't you wait a while?
Why don't you wait a while?

Why don't you wait a while?
Wait a while, why don't you wait while?
Why don't you wait a while?
Wait a while, why don't you wait while?
Why don't you wait a while?
Wait a while, why don't you wait while?
