lyrics

The Update © Martin Kerr 2016

Verse 1:
Computer wants to update a program.
I always click on try again tomorrow, cause that’s not what I need.
The garden wants a weeding. The summer’s almost over.
I haven’t got round to planting the seeds.

Chorus:
What have I been waiting for all this time?
What am I complaining for? The fault’s all mine.
I could cross that bridge, if someone else would pay the toll.
But won’t somebody send an update to my soul?

Verse 2:
My phone it wants to update the system, but I don’t really trust it.
Usually ends up slower than before.
The politicians never stop campaigning.
One day we’re gonna bust ‘em. We’re capable of so much more.

Chorus:
What have I been waiting for all this time?
What am I complaining for? The fault’s all mine.
Sitting here just waiting for my youth to come again.
I’ll stop procrastinating, but don’t ask me when.
I could cross that bridge, if someone else would pay the toll.
But won’t somebody send an update to my soul?
Verse 3:
I wanna feel you love me more than ever.
I know I don’t deserve it. I’m not the man I was back then.
Skinnier and brighter and more hopeful.
Is that the way you want me? I’m not sure I can be that again.

Chorus:
What have I been waiting for all this time?
What am I complaining for? The fault’s all mine.
Sitting here just waiting for my youth to come again.
I’ll stop procrastinating, but don’t ask me when.
I could cross that bridge, if someone else would pay the toll.
But won’t somebody send an update to my soul?

Verse 4:
Should you ever lose your sense of wonder, walk out to the ocean
And sing out to the stars on high.
All the generations gone before you will hear you from the heavens,
They’ll help you if you’d only try.

Chorus:
What have we been waiting for all these hours?
What are we complaining for? The remedy is ours.
We’re sitting here just waiting for our youth to come again.
We’ll stop procrastinating, we can choose just when.
We can cross that bridge, and only we can pay the toll.
Yes only I can make an update to my soul.
