Lyrics

Waiting So Long by Ileana Burdine

We've had so many chances
Back and forth, round and round
I've pushed you again, It might be the end
I'm afraid I can't share what I've found
Here I stand open before you
I offer my heart in my hands
But the words just won't come, The moment's undone
Once more I'm left where I stand

Well, I wanted to tell you I love you
I wanted to say I was wrong
I wanted to say I was sorry
For waiting so long, for waiting so long

You've made a valiant attempt here
Tried to convince me you're true
I just couldn't see, I refused to believe
Hurt was the path that I knew
You understood, you kept reaching
And every time I turned away
I've turned back around, on solid ground
Now it could be too late

Well, I wanted to tell you I love you
I wanted to say I was wrong
I wanted to say I was sorry
For waiting so long, for waiting so long

Now you say you're tired of working
To prove that our love's worth a try
It's over and done, before it's begun
You're tired of wasting your time
'Cause I'll never learn how to trust you
Now it's you now who'll turn away
You won't let me come near, you don't want to hear
There's just something I wanted to say

Well, I wanted to tell you I love you
I wanted to say I was wrong
I wanted to say I was sorry
For waiting so long, for waiting so long
For waiting so long, for waiting so long
