The Song You Need to Listen to When You're Long Distance
I've been a fan of Allison Weiss's for about 5 years now (I can still remember the Kupek cover she did and I still have it saved on my computer) and with all bands I've liked for that long, I like to check back in with them every now and then to see what their music sounds like. I was doing just that when I stumbled upon Wait for Me.
I've been in plenty of relationships and in one or two of them (I can't remember), we had to do some time in the long distance prison. They were either going to school or I was or they had moved away. And, for me, it was one of the most difficult experiences of my life. Especially when we were in different time zones. Every phone or Skype call one (or both) of us was (or were) irritated because we were tired. We'd get jealous every time the other would spend a night out with friends drinking. We'd send drunk and sober text message each other that we missed one another. And eventually things would end because one (or both) of us would make a "mistake we couldn't change".
That's my life, unfortunately, but Wait for Me captures a different experience. One of longing, hope, worry, stress, and everything else in between. I personally love it and the music video (below) is touching and worth the watch as well as the listen.

Notable Lyrics:

I'm missing out on all the places I could go. The people I could know, the nights I'm not alone

We'll never make it and it wasn't meant to be. But I’ll wait if you'll wait for me.

I'm trying to remember your face in my hands. I wanted adventure, you met my demands. I told myself that the day I left I want it but I can't, I fell for something far away again.

@jordanhamilton, YES! it was strange for me because usually videos like this don't work for me but when I watched the whole thing/listened to the song with headphones on, I really felt everything
