Lupa J - Waiting For Her

“Forget the age, anyone making music at this level in any stage of their career is worth taking notice.” – DIY Magazine. Now completing her final year of school at Sydney’s selective Conservatorium High (past alumni includes The Presets and some of Australia’s most acclaimed classical talents) Lupa J has delivered ‘Waiting For Her’, a beguiling slice of left-of-centre pop that serves to further demonstrate her prowess at fusing organic instrumentation with tasteful electronic production, not to speak of her enchanting vocal ability and lyrical flair that suggests soulfulness well beyond her years.

Lupa J – Waiting For Her Lyrics:
She is a girl who sees
More than her eyes can hold
In daring tones she speaks
With words heavier than gold

He is a boy she now needs
To carry her every step further
He is the only book she reads
He is where she finds her words

She hangs from his arms
Entangled in his gaze
He gives her kisses and warmth
Thaws her frozen veins

And I’m still waiting for her
I’m still waiting for her to come
But I’m not sure she can breathe
I’m not so sure she can breathe with him

Still and silent as stone
She now stands here before me
alone
Her eyes are cold and hard
I do not think she can see

I reach out my hand to touch her
To feel the warm blood in her cheeks
But her skin is a shimmering pale blue
And my fingers slip right through

There is nothing to see here.

And I’m still waiting for her
I’m still waiting for her to come
But I’m not sure she can breathe
I’m not so sure she can breathe without him
