Waiting for heaven

Om- Waiting for Heaven

Jag frågade en vän som bott i Los Angeles- hur är det att åka bil i öknen i USA?

Hon berättade om stora horisonter där det kunde vara sol på ena sidan och regn på den andra. Hon berättade om radiopratarna på country&western stationernas tråkiga skämt. Hon talade om dåligt sminkade servitriser på landsvägskrogarna och hur det kändes som om alla bara väntade, som om dom bara slösade bort sin tid

.

Jag ser en bild av en skär amerikanare, med ett helt framsäte, en  kille som kör och en tjej som sitter på tvären, käkar godis och sparkar med tårna på killen, kastar godispapper på honom och frågar-vart ska vi?

Han svarar : Vi ska ingenstans, vi bara kör förbi.

 

Waiting for Heaven

Highway 35 in Texas´ desert to San Antonio, an angel and I

sudden rain just passed away, a kiss from above

Country´N´western radiostation speakers telling boring jokes

little angel laughing munching candy pinchin´ my chin

Hey where´re we going she asked with a candysmile

we´re going nowhere I said we´re just passing by

my little angel tickled me

hit me with a piece of candy on my head

hey youre a fool youre a fool

waiting for heaven

she said time time wasting your time

she said time time wasting your time

time time wasting your time

waiting for heaven

someone who cares

Truckstop café

badly made up waitress red rough hands scratching her arm

oh yes she said we´re all waiting

waiting for it all to begin

I´ve saved my new dress twenty years now

waiting for someone

waiting for rain, waiting for sun

Old man watching TV sipping coffee with milk

in a world of his own

like a part of the wooden chair he’s sitting in

In the entrance corner young boys spending time playing pinball games

waiting for heaven

She said time time wasting your time

she said time time wasting your time

waiting for heaven

someone who cares

New born baby crying for comfort at mothers breast

fighting for life

lovers on the block soaring on pink clouds

using their time

In the middle of the night a sick little boy goes for a ride with Buffalo Bill

I´m a hero mummy and heroes always win

Hey where´re we going she asked with a candysmile

we´re going nowhere I said we´re just passing by

my little angel tickled me

hit me with a piece of candy

you´re a fool you´re a fool

waiting for heaven

she said time time wasting your time

she said time time wasting your time

time time wasting your time

waiting for heaven

someone who cares
