Cuddy, Jim - While I Was Waiting Lyrics




When I finally put my heart away
Stepped out of the mess that I had made
A long time comin' but it's late than never, I said
People say there's someone you should see
I say "Why are you doing this to me?"
I'm happy on the shelf, there's nothin' left
To rattle my head

I walked into the room and I just knew right away
Small talk time as the hours slipped away
So many nights, so blue
Oh, what else could I do
Oh, while I was waitin' for you

Should've seen the ones that came around
Like they're pickin' through the lost and found
I looked 'em up and down and I wished that they would pass on by
Maybe it was somethin' in their walk
Or somethin' funny about the way they talk
Whatever it was, they were dead before they'd even try

They stumbled through the door, said they're feelin' kinda shy
They tell me their life story, man I could died
So many nights, so blue
Oh, what else could I do
Oh, while I was waitin' for you

I looked into your eyes and then I knew
All my waitin' time was through
Never felt a jolt like this before
That woke me up like a siren screamin'
Like the shock of a slammin' door

I looked into your eyes and then I knew
All my waitin' time was through
Never felt a jolt like this before
That woke me up like a siren screamin'
Like the shock of a slammin' door

Who knows 'bout the road that lies ahead
Could be good or we could all be dead
A little life's lesson, you don't go messin' round with fate
I woke up in the mornin' like it's just another day
Could've made a wrong turn, baby who's to say
So many nights, so blue
Oh, what else could I do
Oh, while I was waitin' for you
While I was waitin' for you
While I was waitin' for you
