WAIT

Words and Music by Anne M Carley © 1986 – 2002

When bad love happens to good people.

When I start to miss you and my hands reach over to the telephone
When I start to curse at all the wasted time I spent here all alone
When I start to wonder why it ever had to change for you and me

I want to talk to you and tell you what I want for us
I want to talk to you and hear you say you want me too
I want to talk to you and get you here beside me
Then I know I got to wait

Until it really doesn’t matter
Got to wait
Until I don’t care if I see you or not
Wait until it really doesn’t matter any more

When I want to tell you what my day was like and ask you how was yours
When you don’t remember that you told me you would phone the day before

I have to stop myself from going to the telephone
I have to stop myself from dreaming half my life away
I have to make myself remember where I stand and who I am
and so I’ll wait

Until it doesn’t really matter
Got to wait
Until I don’t care if I see you again
Wait until it really doesn’t matter any more

I wanted you because you’re good to talk it over with
I wanted you because your eyes had such a soulful look
I have to stop myself from going to the telephone
I wanted kids and marriage and a big church wedding
Then I know I got to wait

Until it really doesn’t matter
Got to wait
Because you won’t be here beside me again
Wait until you really don’t matter any more
I got to wait
until it doesn’t really matter
Got to wait
Till I don’t care whether I see you or not
Wait until it really doesn’t matter any more….
