    Lyrics

    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
