Nathanson, Matt - Annie's Always Waiting (For The Next One To Leave) Lyrics




On the outskirts of the wreckage,
Out in the sun under the golden gate,
Annie said she was waiting
For the next one to leave.

She had a masters degree
In disappointment,
That's what she said to me,
Laughed when she said it,
Flat on our backs in the grass
Out at chrissy field.

My life's a movie.
My whole life's a movie,
If movie's made you wanna
Jump off of a bridge.
She said 'I got one who moves me
And one who sees through me.
All I really want is a kiss.

Annie's always waiting for the next one to leave
But she's right on time for me.

I got the right words
From the wrong mouths.
Hurricanes crashing hard
Like I'm the deep south.
Well, it always looked like
Dry land out there to me.

She said, my mother,
She taught me how to doubt myself.
Now, she lives in my head
Like it's a tree house.
I see her clearer in the mirror
More and more each day.

I was only kidding when I said I like a fight.
I was only kinda kidding when I said I like a fight.
I was kinda kidding when I said I like a fight,
But sometimes you gotta start 'em yourself.

    I think it's supposed to be "Next". Weird that they got it wrong on the image!

  3. Shelby Johnson

    Great song, I LOVE MATT NATHANSON!! He is amazing! but....
    I think this has a typo, the picture on the video says Annie's Always Waiting (For the NEW One to Leave) and the title title for the video says "Matt Nathanson - Annie's Always Waiting (For NEXT One to Leave)" No Hate, All love, A little Confused?!?!?!?!? :) <3
