Story So Far, The - Waiting In Vain Lyrics




I don't wanna wait in vain for your love
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love
From the very first time I rest my eyes on you, girl
My heart says follow through

But I know now that I'm way down on your line
But the waiting feel is fine
So don't treat me like a puppet on a string
‘Cause I know I have to do my thing

Don't talk to me as if you think I'm dumb
I wanna know when you're gonna come

I don't wanna wait in vain for your love
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love

‘Cause if summer is here
I'm still waiting there
Winter is here
I'm still waiting there

Like I said
It's been three years since I'm knocking on your door
And I still can knock some more
Oh girl, oh girl, is it feasible?
I wanna know now, for I to knock some more

You see, in life I know there's lots of grief
But your love is my relief
Tears in my eyes burn, tears in my eyes burn
While I'm waiting, while I'm waiting for my turn

I don't wanna wait in vain for your love
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love

I don't wanna wait in vain for your love, oh
I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna
I don't wanna wait in vain
I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna
I don't wanna wait in vain

    I don't wanna wait in vain for your love;
    I don't wanna wait in vain for your love.
    From the very first time I rest my eyes on you, girl,
    My heart says follow t'rough.
    But I know, now, that I'm way down on your line,
    But the waitin' feel is fine:
    So don't treat me like a puppet on a string,
    'Cause I know I have to do my thing.
    Don't talk to me as if you think I'm dumb;
    I wanna know when you're gonna come - soon.
    I don't wanna wait in vain for your love;
    I don't wanna wait in vain for your love;
    I don't wanna wait in vain for your love,
    'Cause if summer is here,
    I'm still waiting there;
    Winter is here,
    And I'm still waiting there.

    [Guitar solo]

    Like I said:
    It's been three years since I'm knockin' on your door,
    And I still can knock some more:
    Ooh girl, ooh girl, is it feasible?
    I wanna know now, for I to knock some more.
    Ya see, in life I know there's lots of grief,
    But your love is my relief:
    Tears in my eyes burn - tears in my eyes burn
    While I'm waiting - while I'm waiting for my turn,
    See!

    I don't wanna wait in vain for your love;
    I don't wanna wait in vain for your love;
    I don't wanna wait in vain for your love;
    I don't wanna wait in vain for your love;
    I don't wanna wait in vain for your love, oh!
    I don't wanna - I don't wanna - I don't wanna - I don't wanna -
    I don't wanna wait in vain.
    I don't wanna - I don't wanna - I don't wanna - I don't wanna -

  64. HaydenB1992

    Damn I didn't think this was really a Bob Marley cover. Good for them

  65. Sleeping Ugly

    I love this cover. TSSF can play anything.

  66. Mindbeblown70

    This is so rad. Just goes to show you how much talent these guys have. It's awesome how they can take a reggae song by Bob Marley, being a hardcore pop punk/alternative band, put their own acoustic twist on it and actually make it sound good for a cover song. Props to them.

  67. Jamal Page

    This is garbage.

  68. Carrera Victor

    best acoustic song from their ep

  69. Tiana O'Neal

    This is fucking beautiful.

  70. tato

    parker sounds better when hes hella angry sorry not sorry

    Kari Vo

    totally agree hahaha

    Somewhat Suitable

    FUCK AN APOLOGY IM NOT SORRY FOR ANYTHING

  71. Valkitrocity

    Damn this is good.

  72. Aimee Taufa

    Fuck, his voice does things to me

  73. warpedsavage

    that was a good Bob Marley cover by them

  74. Sara Binkley

    this is beyond beautiful. I could listen to Parkers voice all day

  75. Edith Williams

    its so chill i love it 

  76. m s

    it's pretty good though

    Cynn V

    Even Nagisa approve of this song :D!

  77. Denver Parker

    This is so on point in my life right now. I know the song existed already, but damn. This is just so right and it hurts. I love TSSF

    Ryan l

    This is a cover

  78. NINTEMIC

    im diggin it. he aint no bob marley but its awesome to hear them cover this.

  79. Perla Medina

    Very happy with this

  80. Ferhat Kizilcay

    I get the chillest vibes from this song

  81. Kyle Rishel

    Sounds wonderful, drums are on point

  82. TheVectorPrime98

    Holy shit I love this song! I cant believe they made a cover for this! :P

  83. Danny Wilkins

    Holy shit, this is bad

  84. McAwesomePants The Awesome

    This isn't bad, but I think navy blue is the best song on this album.

    PencilEraserMusic

    Navy Blue gave me some serious feels. I replayed that so many times when I first heard it

    McAwesomePants The Awesome

    Meet too, that is my favorite acoustic track by The Story So Far next to Clairvoyant.

    PencilEraserMusic

    Nice, yeah, they didn't have many acoustics before then. Maybe Placeholder counts?

    LifeWithLou13

    well this is a cover.....

  85. NizzyNaeNae

    insta-fav

  86. marock411

    Kevin Geyer can shred, damn.

  87. youtubeyoutubeyoutube

    ...really?

  88. John Tinker

    Fucking awesome. Props to you TSSF. Your variety in sound is what keeps me listening to you guys. You always have something "fresh"  and extremely progressive. Parkers voice has progressed an incredible amount since you guys have started. I still remember the day when I first heard you guys, I think it was right after the release of mount diablo. You guys have had such a huge impact on my life and my dream of one day starting my own band. Thank You, keep making amazing shit. Peace.

    John Tinker

    \I wrote "after the release of mount diablo" I meant "under soil and dirt" cannabis.....

    LifeWithLou13

    Lmao this isnt even their song its a cover of Bob Marley and The Wailers

    John Tinker

    The lyrics were written by Bob Marley. However TSSF wrote their own music to it and its awesome. Im sure Bob is up there in heaven jamming to this with a spliff.

    John Tinker

    @LifeWithLou13 

    Alex Smith

    Are you freaking kidding me? this is a cover in ever sense even the haunting melody in the back is there on Bob's version. It's a great cover. That is all.

  89. Brian White

    Such a great cover. Good vibes

    john jackson

    @Brian White 420

  90. Kennedy Jane

    I really love this.

  91. Neek

    oh yikes. This is pretty disappointing.

    LpxMusic

    @***** He never said there was anything wrong with him expressing his opinion, he just fired back with an opinion of his own.

    uwuchiha

    @Nick Steiner i think the reason shows are so shitty are from people overreacting.
    (hint, you're overreacting)

    Stephen Kay

    +Nick Ohhhhh looks like somebody got triggered a year ago.

    Jacob Pirkey

    It's pure it's not dubbed it's all just his voice no edits that's what I love so much about it

  92. ThiagoSaiz

    positive energy man

  93. Tilla Munster

    OMFG YES
