A song about insomnia and being awake while the rest of the world is asleep. It describes that feeling of restlessness when the world is not awake yet and you are wide-awake.


Verse 1

It’s 3AM, I’m pacing again
around my living room.
I couldn’t sleep if you forced me to.
I’m too busy waiting for life to resume.

I’m waiting for something to shake me,
waiting for something to break me.
I’m waiting but I don’t know what for.
I’m waiting on go.

Verse 2

It’s 4AM, I’m out on the patio,
staring up at the stars.
The pre-morning light of the amethyst night,
the sound of a few passing cars.

Maybe I’m waiting for sunrise.
Maybe I’m waiting for blue skies.
Maybe I’m waiting cause I don’t know
what else there is to do.
I’m waiting on


Go, go, go, go.
My foot’s on the gas. All I need is a yes.
My foot’s on the pedal. I just need the signal.
My life is on hold. I just need to be told when to go.
I’m waiting on go.

Verse 3

It’s 5AM, my mind’s racing again.
I might as well stay awake.
I’m watching a traffic light off in the distance,
back and forth green to red.

Maybe I’m waiting for something.
Maybe I’m waiting for nothing.
All I know is I’m still
waiting on go.
