lyrics

Where do the parents go
When you’re all grown up?
Where do the mentors go
When you’ve learned too much
Where do the lovers leave
When the flame’s died down
What do the children see
When the circus leaves town

Where do they go?
Why do they leave
These people you know
Are they still here?

Where do your friends go
When they move away
Where does the sun go
When the skies turn to gray
Where do your dreams go
Where you’re wide awake
Where does your love go
When your heart breaks

Where do they go?
Why do they leave
These people you know
Are they still here?

Where does the pain go
When the drugs take hold
Where does your health go
When your bones grow old
Where does the rain go
When it’s all dried up
How does the wine taste
at the bottom of your cup

So many questions
Looking for answers
Leave a little room
to find it together

Where do your siblings go
when they don’t know you anymore
Where do the veterans go
When they return from the war
Where do the sailors sail
When they’ve caught their final fish
What does the genie do
When he grants his final wish

Where do they go?
Why do they leave
These people you know
Are they still here?

So many questions
Looking for answers
Leave a little room
to find it together
So many questions
Not enough chances
to find it together

about

The Long Wait

We play melodic folk rock that sits somewhere between the old school classic folk rock of Fleetwood Mac and the modern country pop of Brandi Carlile. We'd like to think we play music for anyone who can relate to strong harmonies, rich acoustic/electric guitar blends and popular song structure. ... more
