Lyrics

from the very first time i rest my eyes on you, boy
my heart said follow through but i know now
that i'm way down on your line
but the waiting feeling's fine

so don't treat me like a puppet on a string
because i know how to do my thing
don't talk to me as if you think i'm dumb
i wanna know when you're gotta come,you see

i don't wanna wait in a vain for your love
i don't wanna wait in a vain for your love
i don't wanna wait in a vain for your love
'cause sommer is here
and i'm still waiting there
winter is here
i'm still waiting there

like i said
it's been three years since i'm knocking on your door
and still i can knock some more
oh boy, oh boy, is it crazy look, i wanna know now
for i to knock some more, you see

in life i know
that there is lots of grief
but your love is my relief
tears in my eyes burn
tears in my eyes burn
while i'm waitin'
while i'm waitin' for my turn,you see

like i said-
i don't wanna, i don't wanna
i don't wanna, i don't wanna
i don't wanna wait in vain
i don't wanna, i don't wanna
i don't wanna, i don't wanna
i don't wanna wait in vain

it's been three years since i'm knocking on your door
and still i can knock some more
oh boy, oh boy, is it crazy look, i wanna know now
like i said,the tears in my eyes burn
tears in my eyes burn
while i'm waiting
while i'm waiting for my turn,you see
oh boy, oh boy, is it crazy look, i wanna know now
for i to knock some more
in life i know there is lots of grief
but your love is my relief
