Wait

I told you I loved you

You told me to wait

 

I told you I would care for you

You told me to wait

 

I told you I needed you

You told me to wait

 

I told you I would marry you

You told me to wait

 

So I waited

and waited

and waited some more

 

You didnít love me

But you said you would

 

You didnít care for me

But you said you would

 

You didnít need me

But you said you would

 

You wouldnít marry me

And you donít know if you should

 

So I decide to wait

And wait some more

And wait some more

 

Finally,

I stop waiting

I find another

Who did not make me wait

 

Then you said you cared for me

Then you said you needed me

Then you said you loved me

Then you said you would marry me

 

So I said....

 

Wait
