No matter what I do
I always wait for you
So I guess that’s
That’s what I gotta do

[Chorus:]
It seems I’m spending so much time
Waiting
And when you can’t make up your mind
I’m waiting for you
If that’s what it requires
Then waiting’s what I’ll do
So hurry yourself up
I’m waiting

Just hang up that phone
You already know on your own
What you need to do, and what you got to do
It feels like I’m losing my mind
You know that I’ll deal just fine

[Chorus]

I know you’re thinking my love’s a gamble
And you’re not sure that you’re gonna win now babe
Take your money and double your bet
And see what happens, watch out
And taking my love down to your pawn shop
Tell me baby what should I get
A wedding ring and a boom box
Boom box, boom box, boom box, ow!

And what else can I say
It will do no good anyway
As long as you know that
I’ll keep waiting

[Chorus]

And what else can I say
It will do no good anyway
As long as you know that
I’ll keep waiting

For you I’d wait forever
Because I know that one day we’ll be together
Maybe it’s because you know I’ll wait
You know I’ll wait
I’m still waiting.
