I’m waiting for you to say
I know you better than you think
But did I plan for this to happen?
I claimed I could hold you closer than
Know you better than anyone

Will you wait for me? (x3)
Will you wait for me now?

If you tore me away from all of this
It would not make a difference to me
I’m not saying that I
Wouldn’t miss everyone and everything
It’s not happening
So don’t give me that look
I can see it in your eyes
And I know what you’re gonna say

I’m waiting for you to say
I know you better than you think
But did I plan for this to happen?
I claimed I could hold you closer than
Know you better than anyone

I’ll close my eyes
And make this wish
Nothing that a falling star could do
Cross my fingers
Walk by winter
Hope by summer it comes true
It’s not happening
So don’t give me that look
I can see it in your eyes
And I know what you’re gonna say
Don’t give me that look!

I’m waiting for you to say
I know you better than you think
But did I plan for this to happen?
I claimed I could hold you closer than
Know you better than anyone

Don’t blame me
Blame yourself
If you don’t want me around, yeah
And no, I don’t want you
And no, I don’t need you
If these are the last words you say
Please forgive me for going away, yeah

I guess I was wrong to think that
Something good could last
Put it up, put it up on a shelf
With everything else in my past
It won’t last (x10)

Just say what you want me to do
I’ll come back and be right there in front of you
Just say if you want me or not
If you don’t you can just shut the power off
