What are you waiting for?
Why don't you just hurry up and go?
Come on tear up and sweat with me
Kiss me one last time
cuz I knew you were there
yeah out there on your own
somewhere inside you
you're always getting up the nerve
planning your exit
taking one deep breath to claim your forgiveness
to walk out the door to face fear's glorious roar

Fine, so why don't you go baby?
just leave myself to me
cuz I got where I am
by just getting back on my feet
And I am tough as nails
yeah baby I can hold back the wind
and my strength is my soul
unlike you, my soul lies under my skin

Under your nerves
Under your hands
and I'm sorry to say, your body
your body just aint for me anymore
cuz you've got me sick in the throat
cuz it knows I've been standing here lying
trying to save face by smiling
when inside my heart looks like a disaster
like blown-out semi tires all over Nebraska
And I'm so far from a sure-fire bet
byaby you could give me a mile ahead
and I'd still lose the race


What are you waiting for?
Why don't you just hurry up and go
come on tear up and sweat for me
kiss me one last time
last time

    General CommentOkay, one correction: "you're body just don't work for me no more" is what I thought she was saying...and I also distinctly remember hearing her say "boy" in there somewhere which has kind of confused me...anyone know anything about that?
