Wait For Life - Emile Haynie ft. Lana Del Rey

The Experience: Things are feelin' like fallin' apart...I'm lonely... When life keeps hurting you over and over, how long can you wait for things to get better?

Music video: Still waiting...

The Meaning of Wait For Life: Emile Haynie keeps Lana Del Rey squarely in  Ultraviolence's despair-filled mood. Too bad to want to keep at it. Not bad enough to drive you away. It's a lackluster life.

Ask yourself: Can you expect something good from your life? What are you waiting for? Meaning? Love? Success? Power? Peace? How long will you wait?

LYRICS:

Why you make me work so hard
To put on that evening show
When you know that all I want
Is to make your money grow?
You're like a baby who don't got nowhere to go
I feel you eyeing me, you keep it on the low
(on the low, on the low)

But I can't let you in
And I can't keep you out
I wait for life to end
But it never comes around
And I can't hear you call
And I can't hear me shout
I wait for it to break
But it never comes around
And I'm lonely
I'm lonely
I'm lonely

Why you make me take that sh-t
To put on that evening show
When you know I don't need it
Better than your booze and blow?
You're like a baby, don't know better, you don't know
You drag me down, you try to keep it on the low

But I can't let you in
And I can't keep you out
I wait for life to end
But it never comes around
And I can't hear you call
And I can't hear me shout
I wait for it to break
But it never comes around
And I'm lonely
I'm lonely
I'm lonely
Feel like I'm falling apart
Feel like I'm falling apart
I feel like I'm falling apart
Would you tell me?
Would you tell me?
Would you tell me?

But I can't let you in
And I can't keep you out
I wait for life to end
But it never comes around
And I can't hear you call
And I can't hear me shout
I wait for it to break
But it never comes around
And I'm lonely
I'm lonely
I'm lonely
