The Plate

Based on "Wait" (1965)
New Lyrics written Thursday, October 16, 2003 @ 7:31 a.m.

It's been a long time
since I'd lived all alone.
It's really strange how
when I'm out and get back at home.
The plate,
sitting right there by the phone,
are the brownies hard as stone.

And if the crumbs break,
dont wait, throw 'em away.
But if your jaw's strong,
crunch on. Munch away.
The plate...
...hard as stone.

I won't let go because I know
that you'll be back along and here with me.
But 'til you do, I'll think of you
with every time a brownie I eat.

It's been a long time,
but I hope you'll come home.
You've been away now,
I'm 'bout to lose all control.
The plate...
...hard as stone.

I won't let go...
...brownie I eat.

But as the crumbs break,
my state of being's the same.
I've tried to be strong,
and hold on, forgetting that day.
The plate...
...hard as stone.

It's been a long time
since I've had brownies at home.
It's been a day, now,
you're out, but I want you home.
