Mangan, Dan - Fool For Waiting Lyrics




I can't tell you what it means
When you are here, I am at ease
I don't blame you when you're gone
For the sadness in my song

That weight is mine alone, that shadow is my own
The coast is never clear
I'll wait for morning though, you will arrive
So we can watch that shadow disappear

If you try to be with me, I will try to get by
Some say I'm a fool for waiting
They don't know, this fool doesn't mind

They tell me "Give it up"
But I won't ever give it up

Because when the night does fade
I'm alive in the strangest way
Those first few cracks of dawn
Are a taste of what's to come

And yes I hum and haw about nothing at all
I get lost in fear
But no thief or act of god could take this grin I've got
I know you will be here

And if you try to be with me, I will try to get by
Some say I'm a fool for waiting
They don't know, this fool doesn't mind

They tell me "Give it up"
But I won't ever give it up

Oh, they tell me...
So what she's in your head?
She's gonna leave again?
What's gonna happen then?
She's just enabling
And there is truth to that
But I ain't holding back
If you try, try, try

To be with me, I will try to get by
Some say I'm a fool for waiting
They don't know, this fool doesn't mind...

If you try to be with me, I will try to get by
Some say I'm a fool for waiting
They don't know, this fool doesn't mind

They tell me "Give it up"
But I won't ever give it up
Oh, they tell me "Give it up"
But I won't ever give it up

    I can't tell you what it means
    When you are here I am at ease
    I don't blame you when you're gone
    For the sadness in my song

    That weight is mine alone, that shadow is my own
    The coast is never clear
    I'll wait for morning though, you will arrive
    So we can watch that shadow disappear

    If you try to be with me, I will try to get by
    Some say I'm a fool for waiting
    They don't know, this fool doesn't mind

    They tell me "Give it up"
    But I won't ever give it up

    Because when the night does fade
    I'm alive in the strangest way
    Those first few cracks of dawn
    Are a taste of what's to come

    And yes I hum and haw about nothing at all
    I get lost in fear
    But no thief or act of god could take this grin I've got
    I know you will be here

    And if you try to be with me, I will try to get by
    Some say I'm a fool for waiting
    They don't know, this fool doesn't mind

    They tell me "Give it up"
    But I won't ever give it up

    Ah, they tell me...
    So what she's in your head?
    She's gonna leave again?
    What's gonna happen then?
    She's just enabling
    And there is truth to that
    But I ain't holding back
    If you try, try, try

    Try to be with me, I will try to get by
    Some say I'm a fool for waiting
    They don't know, this fool doesn't mind...

    If you try to be with me, I will try to get by
    Some say I'm a fool for waiting
    They don't know, this fool doesn't mind

    They tell me "Give it up"
    But I won't ever give it up
    Oh, and they tel me "Give it up"
    But I won't ever give it up
