how long will you wait
for me to come around
and wouldnt it be great
if everything worked out

i wouldnt come home late
after hiding out
i tell you everything
how i couldnt live without you now
without you now

and how long will it take
before i wake up unafraid
to take you in my arms
and hold you like a lucky charm

i know it's too late
but wait for me
to turn around
im coming home
so if youre leaving
walk slow
walk slow

all that i can ask
is forgiveness for whats past us now
you know who i am
but will you know me in the end

i know its too late
but wait for me to turn around
im almost home
so if youre leaving
walk slow
walk slow

i know youre not waiting anymore
and im not gonna change
i try to reach you
to let you know
im walking too slow

hey hows your summer going
its good to see you again
im gonna make a record
so ill never forget
what it was i wrecked

so tired of my mind
youre a genius all the time
the things that i cant say
are all making me insane these days
i know its late

    General CommentA story about a guy who waited too long to say something to someone he cared about, and by time he did, it was too late.

    Beautiful.

    General Commentwow, i'm surpirsed not many people commented on this song. it has to be one of the most beautiful songs ever written with an amazing melody. it reminds me of a time when i really cared about a guy and i knew he had feelings for me but something held me back from telling him how i felt. eventually he gave up and i was devastated. but this song says it with meaning, you will wait forever for love.

    General CommentI think this is a great song, but Blake's lyrics have really been going downhill. There used to be some mystery to them and I think that's what made them so great, but now its too obvious...oh well still love the band.

    General CommentAgree with jawbrokenrhymes. it's definitely about a guy who obviously has a special someone in mind, but for some reason or another, cannot come to the reality of admitting it/telling her. straight out of the high school drama book. good song though. has a nice feel to it.

    General CommentThis song is by far my favorite of all the JTB songs. It's one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. Blake is my absolutely favorite person ever.

    General Commenti agree that this song is very beautiful. i don't know if its so much about initiating a relationship as it is about being in a relationship and admitting to yourself and the other person thats it love.
