lyrics

Wait for You I Can’t

Maybe you forget
I’ve got my reasons
I’m willing to bet
You’ve got them too
Ever since we met
I’ve been believing
All this time
I’ve been waiting for you
I can’t wait for you this time

I thought you were fine
With what we’re doing.
Got caught in a bind
What happens now?
Our shot has been fired
Let’s keep pursuing
All this time I’ve been waiting for you
I can’t wait for you this time.

I can’t wait for you this time

Keep dragging your feet
You’ll soon be tripping
You’re lagging defeats
Us from the start
(So why you gotta do that?)
You lack in belief
That’s why we’re slipping
All this time I’ve been waiting for you
I can’t wait for you this time

I’ll throw you the idol
But you gotta throw the whip back
My trust in you is vital
But I have to take a step back
Timings of the essence
One of us is getting left back
I tried to keep a presence
In your life and face the setbacks
Together as a team,
But seems, we did the opposite
The truth will get obscene
The theme
Is that I’ve waited plenty long
And passed up plenty chances
Man And I got plenty wrong
But now I gotta get advances
I can’t

Wait for you this time
I can’t wait for you this time


Is this our undoing?
Sorry that I bailed
The ship sailed
You failed to keep on assuring
That we could make it happen, nope
All these times I’d wait for your
I can’t wait for you this time
Missed another chance to dance
I can’t wait for you this time
Debated if I’d wait once more
I can’t wait for you this time


I got an eye for the Apple
And an apple of my eye
That I’m following
And tolerance
For swallowing my pride
Wallowing and mired in the swamp
Trying to navigate it
Theyre breaking down the ego
So I keep on trying to inflate it
Overrated - what’s that audience that I’ve abated
I keep on writing lyrics that they say are understated
Or over written I’ve debated
Should i follow what’s been slated
A destiny that’s manifest in business plans that’s jaded (8 measures)
And cynical
We’re doing what we can to reach that pinnacle
Honing on them skills just like a doctor in their clinicals
Surgical precision with my plans I gotta execute
passed up many chances when I’m standing waiting next to you
Hoping you’ll go along with it
Ain’t nothin wrong with it
Gotta play it safe I understand
They passed us on with it
But what if you never all in
And getting close was good enough for you, so you’re just stalling
Father Time is calling!


It’s not my call
And not my fault
We’re distant
Your eyeballs
Are fixed on all
The cons-
Sequence of events
You lack persistence
All this time I’ve been waiting for you
I can’t wait for you this time
