Dave Mason - Crying, Waiting, Hoping Lyrics




Please don't tell, no no no
Don't say that I told you so
I've just heard a rumor from a friend
I don't say that it's true
But I just leave that up to you
If you don't believe I'll understand

Crying doo doo doo
Tears keep falling all night long
Waiting doo doo doo
Feel so useless I know It's wrong
To keep crying, waiting, hoping You'll come back maybe someday soon
Things will change and you'll be mine

Crying doo doo doo
Tears keep falling all night long
Waiting doo doo doo
Feel so useless I know It's wrong
To keep crying, waiting, hoping You'll come back
I just can't seem to get you off of my mind
I keep crying, waiting, hoping You'll come back maybe someday soon
Things will change and you'll be mine
Maybe someday soon Things will change and you'll be mine
Maybe someday soon Things will change and you'll be mine

  1. Haraldur Adalbjornsson

    Very good singer

  2. Leif Vidar Gullstad

    Very Nice and very different from Buddy Holly`s Version!!

  3. Paul Wolinsky

    I thought this song was from "Split Coconut" and not the one pictured in the vid, "Mariposa de Oro." Not that it matters, in the larger scheme and all that, but just sayin'

    +Raoul Buurke Hey Raoul: At least you really have an appreciation for good music! Did you know that Crying, Waiting, Hoping is (was) a Buddy Holly song? I'm middle-aged, and so I kind of stick to the music that came out when I was about your age, except that I also like jazz and classical, stuff that I only discovered later. Right now I'm listening to a jazz singer named Gregory Porter; he's fantastic, but they don't play him on ordinary radio.
    And that's the thing that I think really distinguishes what the world of music was like when I was about your age, from now. You could listen to the radio and actually hear great music on FM stations. Now, I don't think it's as easy to do so. The music business has indeed changed since I was young, and while I like a lot of what comes out, even Taylor Swift and Colbie Caillat and Pharrell, I don't think what comes out these days really matches up well with the music of my younger days. I don't lament this all that much; change is the way of the world. But I do wonder what things would be like if musical culture was different.

    Sands of time

    +Raoul Buurke   I just want to jump in on this conversation. You know from the fifties on up to about 2000 we had great music . Every generation added  some thing new ,different, their on twist on things. Artist really cared about their craft and always wanted to excel . Something happened to music about 15 yrs. IMO. Can't quite put my finger on it. Usually money is a big factor ,sales ,distribution etc. The radio industry caved in too. Unfortunately a new generation  has  come along in this 15yrs. They were weaned  on this cookie cutter ,lifeless and dull "music" . This is their music , it's all they know. Now I know that many of these kids have already jumped ship. They know that there is better music out there,. They not only should enjoy the music legacy left for them but Insist and demand more from the corporate entity's  and the artist themselves. There are still great artist out there now and to come. They need the opportunity to be heard. Wake-up Corporate America while there still a chance to turn it around.         Support your local Artist

    Sands of time

    @Raoul Buurke  You either go to bed real late or get up real early. I myself am one of those "Children of the Night" Can't fall asleep until 5or6 a.m. Must have a little vampire in me.
                 There is no doubt that money is the root of all evil and what go's for music today is evil and boring. I just can't tell who's screwing who and why. If I was a betting man I'd put my money on the Corporate stiffs as the screwers. All these bright boys come out of business school and think their going to make a killing. You know being  a real pig ,lie, cheat, and steal for ten years and then retire before they  fire your ass or the Corp goes belly up Maybe I am being a little overdramatic but I don't think am to far off the mark. There really  is no concern for the public , the arts or  the artist Money ! Money ! Money! turn a fast buck before the roof caves in and then theres nothing for anybody. To be Honest I don't know what we the public can actually do about it except as I said, support your local artist I would be very pleased  to hear a renaissance in music before I die . That is all !

    Sands of time

    @Raoul Buurke I think your right , being on different continents  will do it ever time. To tell you the truth, your English is flawless. I could never tell you were from a non-English country Your English is better than many Americans. I don't think both of us are off. You know its' like a kick to the gut, more than just a frame of mind . You know that something is really wrong don't you. Even a blind man knows which  way the wind is blowing.  My use of the word Renaissance was more of a term, a noun ( a change to come,a rebirth, a new dawn ) and not referring to that time in history. It has been my pleasure to hear from you .It's great to know there are like minded people who  also share your view. The best to you , Raoul  Oh ,I have not played P of P.

    @Raoul Buurke   Raoul ,  I was going to respond back to you yesterday but got side tracked, sorry. I complimented you because  I knew that I was dealing with an Intelligent person. You present yourself well, at least your writing does. I'm sure that you will succeed in anything you wish to do.
    There are so many American that are illiterate  In language skills and writing ability, they also don't comprehend well. sad  really. All you have to do is read the Y/T comments. to know what I mean.
    I am a retired blue-collar worker. I've had some college experience and technical training  in the past. I don't consider  myself as highly educated, but as well educated . When I converse with someone, I would much rather talk-up to their level than talk-down to their level, if you know what I mean.
    I live 14km. North of  Boston ,Massachusetts in the part of the country known as New England. in the far N.E. corner of the country. It is the oldest settled area in U.S. we are 500 km. South of Montreal ,Canada and 375 km. N.E. of New York City, New York.
    I have enjoyed our chat. Thank you for your response.   Regard, Paul
