"Waiting" is an early song by The Smashing Pumpkins. It was recorded at Reel Time Studios in 1989 but did not make the cut on any of the early demos.

The song also had a 'joke title' of "A Trip Unto Bountiful", and is also incorrectly listed as "Mother" on some bootlegs.

It has no correlation to the Adore-era song "Waiting".

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

waiting, I am waiting
and who you are now
starting, i'm starting
pleading, oh yeah

i will return
i will return

on this rooftop, i am
one step closer to you and your pain
reaching, reaching through
ah you, who are you

i will return
i will return
i will return
i will return
