"Another is Waiting" is the first single from The Avett Brothers's 2013 album Magpie and the Dandelion. It was released on NPR's All Songs Considered on August 8, 2013.[1] The song's music video, directed by Scott Avett, premiered on October 2, 2013 on EW.com.

"Another is Waiting" derived from the Brothers' "Another Youngster" which they played live from 2007 to 2011 and recorded for I and Love and You but dropped because they deemed it "too boring".

The song also appears on 2015's Live, Vol. Four.

From the "Another is Waiting" music video

It's a fake
It's a hoax
It's a nowhere road where no one goes
Anywhere
Anyhow
Where you're following your heart right down

She's a rose
She's a queen
But she's staring at a magazine
In the dark
On that path
Where they doctor every photograph

Another is waiting
She isn't saying anything

If you care
If you like
Well I'm standing in the lantern light
With our weapons
And our love
And I use 'em both to cover up

Another is waiting
She isn't saying anything

But I love you and I care
So you got to get off that conveyor belt
If I could
I would come right in and take you off myself

It's a fake
It's a con
The nature of the road you're on
Lets me see
Your skeleton
Well before your life is done

Another is waiting
She isn't saying anything
Another is waiting
She isn't saying anything
