      About "We Used to Wait"

      Lyrics for Arcade Fire - "We Used to Wait"

      I used to write
      I used to write letters
      I used to sign my name
      I used to sleep at night
      Before the flashing lights settled deep in my brain
      But by the time we met
      By the time we met
      The times had already changed

      So I never wrote a letter
      I never took my true heart
      I never wrote it down
      So when the lights cut out
      I was lost standing in the wilderness downtown

      Now our lives are changing fast
      Now our lives are changing fast
      Hope that something pure can last
      Hope that something pure can last

      It seems strange
      How we used to wait for letters to arrive
      But what's stranger still
      Is how something so small can keep you alive
      We used to wait
      We used to waste hours just walkin' around
      We used to wait
      All those wasted lives in the wilderness downtown

      Ooooo we used to wait
      Ooooo we used to wait
      Ooooo we used to wait
      Sometimes it never came (we used to wait)
      Sometimes it never came (we used to wait)
      Still moving through the pain

      I'm gonna write a letter to my true love
      I'm gonna sign my name
      Like a patient on a table
      I wanna walk again
      Gonna move through the pain

      Now our lives are changing fast
      Now our lives are changing fast
      Hope that something pure can last
      Hope that something pure can last

      Ooooo we used to wait
      Ooooo we used to wait
      Ooooo we used to wait
      Sometimes it never came (we used to wait)
      Sometimes it never came (we used to wait)
      Still moving through the pain
      We used to wait
      We used to wait
      We used to wait

      We used to wait for it
      We used to wait for it
      Now we're screaming
      Sing the chorus again
      We used to wait for it
      We used to wait for it
      Now we're screaming
      Sing the chorus again
      I used to wait for it
      I used to wait for it
      Hear my voice screaming
      Sing the chorus again

      Wait for it
      Wait for it
      Wait for it
