I can’t wait
Wait for you to change your mind
I can’t wait
Waiting just making me go blind

Do you ever lay awake at night, your face turned to the wall
Drowning in your thoughtlessness and cut off from it all
I don’t know maybe for you it’s not that late
But as for me don’t know how much longer I can wait

It’s got to end
Everything about it just feels wrong
I pretend
Being close to her is where I don’t belong

Well, my back is to the sun because the light is too intense
I can see what everybody in the world is up against
I’ll stay here where I can feel the hand of fate
And I don’t know how much longer I can wait

Skies are gray
Life is short and I think of her a lot
I can’t say
If I want the pain to end or not

Well, the blindness overtaking me, is beating like a drum
I don’t know where it starts or where it’s coming from
That’s how it is, well try to concentrate
And I don’t know how much longer I can wait

I been drinking
Drinking forbidden juices
I been living
Living on lame excuses

My hands are cold
The end of time has just begun
I’m getting old
Anything can happen now to anyone

I walk all across the floor ’til I wear out my shoes
You think you’ve lost it all, there’s always more to lose
I’m so clear, she can keep my head on straight
And I don’t know how much longer I can wait

[Bob Dylan]
