Waiting Game - Banks



The Experience: What if the way we started made it something cursed from the start... Cuz lately I've been scared of even thinking 'bout where we are... It didn't start well... and it doesn't look like it has any chance of ending well. But there's no hope of getting out. You're just waiting for the first blow to fall...



Music Video: Black and white underlines the harsh despair of Waiting Game. She's attracted to the light - she wants out, wants to hope. But even while he follows her towards the light, he has to shield his eyes - he and the light aren't friends. And she's left waiting... His hand starts out as a fist aimed at her face and then changes into a caress. But she's waiting for the time when the fist will stay a fist - I'm scared of thinking 'bout where we are.

The Meaning of Waiting Game: An unhealthy relationship where sexy is always accompanied by shame, and where evil is the next feeling on the list. When you're stuck in a relationship like that, love is a waiting game, even if you don't wanna say it. You wait for it to get worse - what if it only gets colder. You wait for them to reveal their true hand - what if I never even see you cuz we're both on a stage. The downward spiral of the music underlines her despair, and the rasping breathing of a predator underlines who he really is.

Ask yourself: Can you recover once you've made the big mistake of letting the wrong person take you and your love?

LYRICS:

I'm thinking it over
The way you make me feel all sexy but it's causing me shame
I wanna lean on your shoulder
I wish I was in love but I don't wanna cause any pain
And if I'm feeling like I'm evil, we've got nothing to gain

What if I never even see you cuz we're both on a stage
Don't tell me listen to your song because it isn't the same
I don't wanna say your love is a waiting game

Baby I'm thinking it over
What if the way we started made it something cursed from the start
What if it only gets colder
Would you still wrap me up and tell me that you think this was smart
Cuz lately I've been scared of even thinking 'bout where we are

What if I never even see you cuz we're both on a stage
Don't tell me listen to your song because it isn't the same
I don't wanna say your love is a waiting game

What if I never even see you cuz we're both on a stage
Don't tell me listen to your song because it isn't the same
I don't wanna say your love is a waiting game
