growing old, and living for
the moment, you're
searching for something
cannot find, the truth inside
will leave you all, that you're living for

thinking love is gone, its gone

why wait for you to come home
why search for answers to nothing
dont come back crying for help
why wait for life to come

growing old, and living for
the moment, you're
searching for something
cannot find, the truth inside
will leave you all, that you're living for

thinking love is gone, its gone

why wait for you to come home
why search for answers to nothing
dont come back crying for help
why wait for life to come

think back, shocking, believe, its me

why wait for you to come home
why search for answers to nothing
dont come back crying for help
why wait for life to come

    General CommentI can't believe there are only 2 replies to this song. This is one of the best rufio songs every.

    I think this song is about somebody he loved, but left his life, and he's asking himself y wait for that person if there is no more love between them....? w/e it means, it's still a good song

    General CommentMCMLXXXV actually has a different version of "why wait" on the cd, and these are the lyrics to it (not that much different):

    --
    growing old, and living for
    the moment, you're
    searching for something
    you cannot find, the truth inside
    will reveal all, that we're living for

    think all is gone, its gone
    why wait for you to come home
    why search for answers to nothing


    so dont you fall back on me
    or try to drag me down
    and whats the use in
    wanting life to come

    growing old, and getting bored
    of the moment, you're
    searching for something
    you cannot find, the truth inside
    and it will reveal all
    that we're searching for

    think back, shocking, believe, its me

    why wait for you
    --

    General Comment"thinking love is gone, its gone" meaning that if you think something is over then it is, if you never let it go it'll be with you forever.... "why wait for you to come home? why serach for answers to nothing? so dont you fall back on me and try to drag me down and whats the use and wanting life to come" < what I hear... I think that means the he is waiting and waiting for someone to come back to him and he doesnt want to anymore that he is being brought down by waiting and doesnt want that shit anymore....
