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.
