Waving Through a Window

From the Broadway Musical "Dear Evan Hansen"

Written by Pasek and Paul


Verse 1

I've learned to slam on the brake
before I even turn the key
before I make the mistake
before I lead with the worst of me.
Give them no reason to stare
No slipping up if you slip away
So I've got nothing to share
No I've got nothing to say


Step out, step out of the sun,
If you keep getting burned.
Step out, step out of the sun,
Because you've learned, because you've learned


On the oustide always looking in,
Will I ever be more than I've always been?
'Cause I'm tap, tap, tappin' on the glass,
Wavin' through a window.
I try to speak but nobody can hear,
So I wait around for an answer to appear
While I'm watch, watch, watching people pass,
Wavin' through a window.
Can anybody see? Is anybody waving back at me?

Verse 2

We start with stars in our eyes,
We start believing that we belong,
But every sun doesn't rise,
And no one tells you where you went wrong.

(repeat pre-chorus and chorus)


When you're fallen in a forest,
And there's nobody around
Do you ever really crash, or even make a sound? (x4)

(repeat chorus)


Is anybody waving? Waving? Waving? Woah, woah.
