lyrics

I'm standing in line
For what I don't know
I'm hardly alone
At this particular show
But I've been waiting so long
For what I do not know to happen
Heads are bobbing
Fingers are snapping
And it's true
That it's all about you
And you're still more black than blue
I stuck my toe in yr water
I started from your back page
Since everything else around you
Seems to go down that way
But I've been waiting so long
For what I do not know to happen
Heads are bobbing
Fingers are snapping
And it's true
That it's all about you
And you're still more black than blue
I can't  play my zurna tonight
I just can't seem to make any sound go through
It  keeps getting tangled on the line
Over and over and over
I keep losing ground all the time
Just when I think I got it to work, I don't.
And I'm coming around to wondering why
There's nothing I can do about it
I start thinking too much and losing my mind
You might think that I could have figured that out before now
You keep telling me no
I'm asking you why
Is there nothing I can do about it?
