Lyrics

I'm Still Waiting by TBurns

1.
Today has come and gone and I'm still waiting
As it seems I've done so many yesterdays
How much time, I know, I've wasted contemplating
What I wish would come my way
At first,we took our time with one another
As though we had no other wishes left to prove
And then I learned too late By far my worst mistakes
Were the times I didn't wait to spend with you

2.
The stars behind a cloud don't cast its shadow
They're willing just to wait and watch it pass
They never seem impatient for tomorrow
They know tomorrows never last
The times when you and I were truly happy
We weren't waiting for tomorrows to come true
And now I've learned too late
By far my worst mistakes
Were the times I didn't wait to spend with you


Chorus:

I'm climbing walls of wishes
For dreams I've already come through
And I'm just waiting here for one more time
I wish that I could spend with you

3.
Daylight's rolling in on all my sorrow
As it tries to push the dark of night away
And I find myself now facing some tomorrow
I hoped for yesterday
I wonder where you are and if you're lonely
Or contented since you've found somebody new
And I know it comes too late
But by far my worst mistakes
Were the times I didn't wait to spend with you

Chorus:

I'm climbing walls of wishes
For dreams I've already come through
And I'm just waiting here for one more time
I wish that I could spend with you
