James Bay - Wait In Line Lyrics




I can't shake this feeling
At the end o' each day
That I keep on working hard
But all I do is get paid
Though I keep believing
There's a light up ahead
'Cause it's only getting darker
And I could stay in my bed

It's a fight
It takes so long
But I've learned to hold my own

So I stand
And I wait in line
With a heavy head
And this bottle of wine
And I watch
As they steal my time
I stand and I wait in line
I stand and I wait in line

I walk home in the shadows
I carry my cage
And I hope they notice
What I brought to the stage

'Cause it's a fight
And it takes so long
But I've learned to hold my own

So I stand
And I wait in line
With a heavy head
And this bottle of wine
And I watch
As they steal my time
I stand and I wait in line
I stand and I wait in line

Ooh whenever it gets inside
It gets so hard to hide
Whenever it gets inside
Ooh I know you'll turn out right
Giving it all my life
I know you'll turn out right

And I stand
And I wait in line
With a heavy head
And this bottle of wine
And I vow
As they steal my time
I know one day I'll get mine
And I stand here and wait in line

I stand and I wait in line
I stand and I wait in line

  83. Ty Woodhall

    James Bay is distinctive, original, and hard to forget. It’s not simply the british flare, but his unique style that has his audience begging for an encore. The bleeding heart from “Incomplete” or the “Scars” that have left an such a impression. Bay is as real, as genuine and authentic as it gets.  –Ty Woodhall 37

    I n T e R e Y e

    Ty Woodhall Did you just quote yourself.

  84. AJ_Landon

    This song's refrain is just so intense! I love it!
