Chris Cummings — I Waited lyrics

She asked before she turned away
"Is there anything you need to say"
"I love you" might have worked
But I never said a single word
She never even made the front gate
Before I knew I was too late

Chorus:
I waited 'till she was far enough away
And then I cried
I waited till I had all she could take
I don't know why
I wanted to say "I love you"
At the perfect time
And like a fool
I waited till she said goodbye

All the lines weren't quite right
The cha nces that I let slip by
All the times that I held out
Are reasons she's not here right now
All she really needed was to know
All I had to do was let it show

Repeat chorus
