|I can't wait, wait for you to change your mind
|It's late, I'm tryin' to walk the line
|Well, it's way past midnight
|And there's some people all around
|Some on their way up, some on their way down
|The air burns and I'm tryin' to think straight
|An' I don't know how much longer I can wait.
|I'm your man, I'm tryin' to recover the sweet love that we knew
|You understand that my heart can't go on beatin' without you
|Well your loveliness has wounded me
|I'm reelin' from the blow
|I wish I knew what it was that keeps me lovin' you so
|I'm breathin' hard, standin' at the gate
|Ah, but I don't know how much longer I can wait.
|Skies are gray
|I'm lookin' 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 comin' I don't know what I might 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 rollin' through stormy weather
|I'm thinkin' 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
|Well, I'm strollin' 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
|I don't know how much longer I can wait.
