Don Lange: Music

Wait Awhile

(Don Lange)

WAIT AWHILE ©2005 Don Lange, Barking Spider Music, BMI

As the light was fading
I laid a rose on my father’s grave
Many miles I’ve traveled
and many days

The old brick church still standing
At the edge of a fallow field
The churchbell silent
The silence so surreal

Wait awhile, this will all come back to you
Wait awhile, like a bolt out of the blue
On a summer’s morn when the sun reigns down
On a lawn that’s wet with dew
And the ice cream man in his little van
Rings down the avenue
Wait awhile

The town square stands deserted
They tore the courthouse down
It’s WalMart World
Out on the edge of town

You recall all their names now
But cannot call them back
Their black and white world
Fades to black

Wait awhile, they will all come back to you
Wait awhile, like a bolt out of the blue
On a summer’s morn when the sun reigns down
On a lawn that’s wet with dew
And the ice cream man in his little van
Rings down the avenue
Wait awhile

(Repeat 1st verse to end)
