Dalszöveg / Lyrics: Lady so black Like a million cemetery lawns I don't even try anymore Keeping up with the headstones Maybe I've been waiting too long, too long For somebody to throw my kinda party And I know, I'm too old Stadiums cry Go on wait until your band gets back together Don't you think it's probably time you sit and write your fans an apology letter Maybe you've been waiting too long, too long For somebody to throw your kinda party And you're old, you're too old If you're waiting for an invitation You're gonna wait a long time Wait a long time, wait a long time If you're looking for an invitation It's never gonna come, it's never gonna come You're never gonna get one Lovers they try, they try to whip the stars into compliance Careful, don't you pull too hard Don't want to knock the planets out of alignment Maybe you've been waiting too long, too long For somebody to show to the party And you're old, you're too old If you're waiting for an invitation You're gonna wait a long time Wait a long time, wait a long time If you're looking for an invitation It's never gonna come, it's never gonna come You're never gonna get one If you're waiting for an invitation You're gonna wait a long time Wait a long time, wait a long time, wait a long time, you're gonna wait a long time, wait a long time, wait a long time, wait a long time, you're gonna wait a long time, wait a long time, wait a long time, wait a long time, you're gonna wait a long time, you're gonna wait a long time

This song was litterally made for that moment. It’s also basically “wait for it” the song

Denisa Tulvan (6 months ago)
@NIKEIL Pal I actually like it, especially the fact that it's raining so often and it's not too cold or too warm. Yes, I have instagram. You can find me exactly like here but no space between the names
NIKEIL Pal (6 months ago)
Denisa Tulvan ah it’s ok over here but the weather won’t make its mind and if you want to continue talking do you have any social media like snapchat or Instagram?
Denisa Tulvan (6 months ago)
@NIKEIL Pal wow, really? That's really cool =))). Oh god, I LOVE your country. Like, I dream of living there at least 2 times a day. Okay, I'll stop fangirling =))). Aaaaand, I think that if we want to continue talking, we should find another way cause it's getting weird to talk through comments on this beautiful song =))))))

I'm here because of HIMYM. Having watched the show, I think this song is all about the danger of living passively, to which I can most definitely relate. P.s. tears for Ted :'(

Don't get married. Look,you're rushing into this. It's like you're trying to skip ahead to the end of the book. Ted, you're the most romantic guy I know. You You stole a blue French horn for me. You tried to make it rain. - I did make it rain. - It was a coincidence. But after all that, this is how your great romantic quest comes to an end? You're just disappearing into someone else's wedding, someone else's house, someone else's life without a second thought. That's not the amazing ending that you deserve. That's not Ted Mosby.

The first time i heard this song, i was going through a deep depression... i got so hopeless and lost all my wills.. but losing hope was the better thing ever happened to me. We dont have to wait, we have to do. We just have to live fearless, focused and always do the best. Those who hope, fear. Also, it is never late to try, we can catch up

I hated Stella from the beginning. I actually liked her after she left him at the altar. She saved his life^^ She was boring, annoying and she just wasn't right for Ted. And he was stupid with this whole "will you marry me" thing. too soon and it wasn't true love

@Pedro Cancelinha Yeah the movie he made out of Ted made Ted look like a asshole. Stella was crazy. Josh though the guy who plays Ted loves the girl who plays Stella. Tony is a asshole big time he and Stella fucked up the wedding and it was worse when the movie was showed.
