Waiting For Jeremy







Waiting For Jeremy

Jeremy and Teresa have gone off to a private, dark corner.

Jeremy likes his martini extra dry with a twist, never an olive, nor an onion. They'll slip away as soon as he finishes his drink. I suppose it builds nerves.

Time is short, church lets out at nine.


In the other corner of the bar sitting in the glow of candles is Magnolia Brown and her newest beau, Paul Center. She's a handful and he better mind his tracks.

I've known Magnolia for years myself... So have a lot of men in town. Mind you, she's all woman.

Paul? He's played the field. He only recently stopped going out with Debbie DuBopp. He's still married to Sue though. He just never admits it.

Sue knows more than she lets on. She's heard talk. She's heard Debbie talk.

The Burning Inside

Another long Wednesday evenin’ off to a slow start
Tending Teresa serving up a lonely heart

She sits alone sips as slow as she can
There’s a diamond in her heart but no ring upon her hand

She’s waiting for Jeremy
Waiting for Jeremy
Waiting for Jeremy
Waiting for Jeremy

He’s a married man with two kids and a wife
Got a payment on two homes got a mortgage on his life

They meet on Wednesday once the church bells sound
No one will notice if Jeremy’s soul’s not around

She’s waiting for Jeremy
Waiting for Jeremy
Waiting for Jeremy
Waiting for Jeremy

Jeremy comes in and puts her mind at ease
Gentle with words he’s the man Teresa needs

He’s here for a reason but he really can’t say why
Three years of Wednesday nights but he still won’t leave his wife

She’s praying for Jeremy
Praying for Jeremy
Praying for Jeremy
Praying for Jeremy

It’s a perfect evenin’ least ‘til the church burns down
Won’t stop their love affair won’t stop their playing round

Teresa knows it ain’t love but it’s something she needs
She knows he’s taken comes with only one guarantee

She’s waiting for Jeremy
Waiting for Jeremy
Waiting for Jeremy
Waiting for Jeremy
