Waiting
Shiny Toy Guns Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

It's not what you think
If you're thinking I'm a liar
Like falling from grace--
I could do that.

And I'll be waiting all day
And I'll be waiting all day
Summer grey...
It's only
And I'll be waiting all day




It's only
And I'll be waiting all day

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Waiting by Shiny Toy Guns are not as straightforward as they appear to be. The opening line "It's not what you think, if you're thinking I'm a liar" implies that there is more to the story than what meets the eye. The singer seems to be admitting that they have done something wrong, but they don't want to be judged for it. The lyrics "Like falling from grace, I could do that" echoes the religious concept of falling from grace and suggests that the sin they have committed is a serious one.


The repetition of "And I'll be waiting all day" could be interpreted in a few different ways. It could suggest that the singer is waiting for forgiveness or waiting for someone to understand them. It could also be a reflection of the guilt they are feeling, as if they are waiting for their punishment. The phrase "Summer grey" is interesting as it is not a common description of color. It could represent a feeling of emptiness or a lack of joy despite the bright and sunny summer days. Overall, the lyrics suggest a sense of inner turmoil, regret, and a desire for redemption.
