"I Can't Wait" as written by Ben Macklin, Hannah Robinson, Julian Ashley Peake, Richard Frederick Stannard, Una Healy, Mollie King, Frankie Sandford, Vanessa White and Rochelle Wiseman....
I can't wait till you try to come back girl
When things they don't work out for you
Who do you think you're messing with girl
What do you think you're trying to do?

Who do you think you're messing with girl
What do you think you're trying to do?
Do you really think I want be laughed at girl
Who do you think you're trying to fool

First you said I was blind
And it's gonna be different this time
I thought you made up your mind
I thought you made up your mind, yeah
I thought you made up
I thought you made up
I thought you made up your mind

So many times I've gotten used to this
This old idea of being all alone
Tell me how I'm supposed to get through with this?
I wish this house felt like a home

Who do you think you 're messing with girl
What do you think you're trying to do?
Do you really think I want be laughed at girl
Who do you think you're trying to fool

First you said I was blind
You certainly took your time
I thought you made up your mind
I thought you made up your mind, yeah
I thought you made up
I thought you made up
I thought you made up your mind

    General CommentThe first verse seems to be about how his girl has left him for someone else and he's obviously really angry. He knows that her new relationship will never work out and he "can't wait until (she) tries to come back" to him so he can just reject her and have his revenge. Thats what i think this song is about, alot of it seems to be what he would say to her when she comes back; very bitter and mocking ("I though you made up your mind").
    The second verse verse shows that inside, however angry and bitter he is towards the girl, he still misses her like crazy and he feels empty inside.
    Thats how i see it anyway.
    White Stripes Rock!

    General Commentgreat song, but it sure does sound familiar. Thats it the opening riff is pretty much nicked off heart shaped box by nirvana. just a tad slower, and it does change a little at the end

    General CommentVery cool song, I also noticed the Nirvana take-off, but also it's also very Beatles-esque. Nice mix there

    General Commentspeaking of the intro sounding like nirvana. did anyone else notice that the beginning of "dead leaves and the dirty ground" also sounds like the bridge (towards the end of the song) of green day's "brain stew?" again a little slowed down and the notes are more discrete, but i made the connection right away the first time i heard "dead leaves."

    General CommentThis seems to be their most "commercial" song, not that "White Stripe-y" in my opinion, not saying it's not a good song.
