it's the fourth of july and the fireworks are over
she sits in the car next to me
she stares out the window, the world is far, far away
and I am too

she takes a long, slow look with her weary, weary eyes
and takes a deliverance breath
i can't do this anymore
i've been waiting so long
to give back, give back what i gave to you

(c)
she waits so long
she waits so long
she waits so long
she waits so long

flowers you picked and your foot on the table
you're trying so hard to make this work
want me to need me the way that you need me
but i don't know

maryann, i think i know what our problem is
we need a little space and some time
are you leaving me? how could you say that?
how could you say that now?

(c)
she waits so long
she waits so long
she waits so long
she waits so long

(b)
she said i can't take it here no more
i feel much better than before
missed your chance so get out of my way
never gonna see me here again

you swallowed my faults and you kept them for later
you needed our love to survive
and now you walk out to leave me forever
i'll be the one who's burning inside
(c)
she waits so long
she waits so long
she waits so long
she waits so long
how could she wait so long?
