You Waited For Me

from by Petracovich



I wrote this song for Max and Ashley's wedding. Max being the excellent drummer for Petracovich. It was an honor to be asked to play, and to write a song, man, I waited till the last couple weeks. It's a mix of ideas from my own love story (I met my husband in Europe when in a wheelchair and he was the crazy guy climbing on everything, he helped me get around) and from inspirations of Max and Ashley, another 10 year relationship. It's all done on one mic on my home piano, captures a nice moment.


Many Years ago

I was movin’ slow

You came up beside

Spoke in soft gray tones

Something old and known

And I felt like I went home

You waited for me

You and your nimble feet

You moved ‘em slow and walked with me

We went listening

Through the city streets

Light on the cathedrals

Sun rang through the sqaure

A little tear repaired

I didn’t know was there

You waited with me

You and your nimble feet

You put ‘em up and sat with me

Morning’s on your hair

You read the paper and

I eat my cereal

And I steal a stare

Its 10 years later and

You’re even more beautiful

You waited for me

For the bones in my feet

To harden and grow steady

Now I’m a sturdy little bird

I’d go with you around the world

Or I’d stay right here on this block

For years and years and years
