cindy is waiting

In doing that “Cindy is” thing from the last entry, I came upon a song called “Cindy is Waiting” preformed by Daryl Braitchwaite.

Cindy waits for a man, she’s alone, another night on the town
And she’s down at the truck-stop giving only her smile away
While he’s doing time within, she’s doing time without, without him
You weren’t born to wait, a martyr to fate
You were born to live, not for standing, not for standing still

He runs with the ball but at the end of the play there’s the wall
You reach for his hand to feel the ice-cold steel of the law
There in a flash but it’s a cold ride back in the dark
When you’re alone in your bed, you see the long road ahead
A victim of love that’s unrelenting, it’s unrelenting

Cindy is waiting, even if it takes forever
Cindy is waiting, seems the love she has will never die

He’ll wait for you in the street tonight at the Paragon
You’ll be with him in your sleep tonight but not for long
I wanna feel your flesh, I wanna touch your skin
What ain’t I got that you still wait for him
He’s far away in another part of your world
I only want you one night, baby – just one night alone
Please

It gets so cold at night and Cindy knows how it feels
To be raped of her youth by thieves with their own crooked deals
You can’t escape, you’re a prisoner locked in your own life
Strapped into your role by a love with no mercy
Between heaven and hell, what’s the reason, tell me what’s the reason

Cindy is waiting, she’s spending every night alone
Cindy is waiting, when the lights go out and you’re on your own

I wanna give you the love that you’ve waited for
Let your dress fall gently to the floor
Lie back in the coma of this unpure delight
Though I’m scared of you baby, you’re not afraid of me
I wanna crown my fears in the glory of what will never be

‘Cause Cindy is waiting, even if it takes forever
Cindy is waiting, seems the love she has will never die
Will never die, will never die
He’s far away in another part of your world
I only want you one night, baby just one night
