about

Cities & States Salem, Massachusetts

Cities & States' sophomore album, aptly named "Sophomore Slump", is a massive work displaying the breadth of Richard's palette, Sinnatamby's engineering mastery, and Bickerton's command of the kit. This collaboration has revealed a palpable necessity for expression, and a greater need for exploring the far corners of an endless musical landscape.

Track Name: The Waiting Game
My compass is no good
My compass is no good
When it don't work the way it should
My compass is no good

Lost out in the woods
I'm lost out in the woods
Me and my gal misunderstood
I'm lost out in the woods

(Chorus)
I'll never be the same without you
I hear the echo of your name
The only thing I ever learn from being lovesick
is how to play the waiting game

My hammer will not swing
My hammer just won't swing
Because the weight of everything
My hammer just won't swing

The past is set in stone
The past is set in stone
So memorize your favorite poem
The past is set in stone

(Chorus)
I'll never be the same without you
I hear the echo of your name
The only thing I ever learn from being lovesick
is how to play the waiting game

Ear to ear, I've seen you smile
Season to season, and you change your style
Year after year another crooked country mile
Life after death in just a while

(Chorus)
I'll never be the same without you
I hear the echo of your name
The only thing I ever learn from being lovesick
is how to play the waiting game
