lyrics

THE WAITING GAME

Spent my teens roaming side streets
Avoid the hard road when I could
And in the corner of my mind I’d wait for you
But the waiting did no good

I used to think life was easy
Now I know that’s not true
The journey’s rough and oh the road is long
But the road leads to you

Followed the signs there in front of me
and tried to be patience, know I’m on my way
Will the sun shine on the other side?
or will it always look the same?
I just play the waiting game
The waiting game

Watch my dreams from the sideline
Just a stone throw away
Though I looked I never truly saw
This is my game to play

Close my eyes I need a breather
Hit a wall with all my force
Cause I know I believe in something more
You can hear it in my voice

I can feel it right in front of me
But I try to be patient; know I’m on my way
Is it brighter on the other side?
Or is it always looking grey?
I just play the waiting game, the waiting game

Try to be patient, Try to be patient
I’ve got to be patient, if I want it
Will it always look the same?
I just play the waiting game, the waiting game
