Can't Wait

I can't wait, wait for you to change your mind

It's late; I'm trying to walk the line

Well it's way past midnight and there are people all around

Some on their way up, some on their way down

The air burns and I'm trying to think straight

And I don't know how much longer I can wait

.

I'm your man; I'm trying to recover the sweet love that we knew

You understand that my heart can't go on beating without you

Well, your loveliness has wounded me, I'm reeling from the blow

I wish I knew what it was keeps me loving you so

I'm breathing hard, standing at the gate

But I don't know how much longer I can wait

.

Skies are grey, I'm looking for anything that will bring a happy glow

Night or day, it doesn't matter where I go anymore; I just go

If I ever saw you coming I don't know what I would do

I'd like to think I could control myself, but it isn't true

That's how it is when things disintegrate

And I don't know how much longer I can wait

.

I'm doomed to love you, I've been rolling through stormy weather

I'm thinking of you and all the places we could roam together

.

It's mighty funny; the end of time has just begun

Oh, honey, after all these years you're still the one

While I'm strolling through the lonely graveyard of my mind

I left my life with you somewhere back there along the line

I thought somehow that I would be spared this fate

But I don't know how much longer I can wait.
