The Waiting

Tom Petty

“The waiting is the hardest part, every day you see one more card. You take it on faith, you take it to the heart. The waiting is the hardest part.

Something I Said?

“I keep looking for something I can’t get, broken hearts lie all around me. And I don’t see an easy way to get out of this.
