Sitting, Waiting, Wishing

Well I was sitting, waiting, wishing

You believed in superstitions

Then maybe you'd see the signs

 

The Lord knows that this world is cruel

I ain't the Lord, no I'm just a fool

Learning lovin' somebody don't make them love you

 

Must I always be waiting, waiting on you

Must I always be playing, playing your fool

 

I sang your songs, I danced your dance

I gave your friends all a chance

But putting up with them

Wasn't worth never having you

 

Maybe you've been through this before

But it's my first time so please ignore

The next few lines cause they're directed at you

 

I can't always be waiting, waiting on you

I can't always be playing, playing your fool

 

I keep playing your part

But it's not my scene

Want this plot to twist

I've had enough mystery

Keep building it up

Then shooting me down

But I'm already down

 

Just wait a minute

Just sitting, waiting

Just wait a minute

Just sitting, waiting

 

Well, if I was in your position

I'd put down all my ammunition

I'd wonder why'd it taken me so long

 

But Lord knows that I'm not you

And if I was, I wouldn't be so cruel

Cause waitin' on love aint so easy to do

 

Must I always be waiting, waiting on you

Must I always be playing, playing your fool

 

No, I can't I always be waiting, waiting on you

I can't always be playing, playing your fool
