I couldn't wait forever
Did you expect me to?
I guess you thought I'd never
Find somebody new

I lived on dreams and promises
As long as I could
I couldn't wait forever
The way you thought I would

The lonely nights grew longer
As I prayed for time to fly
I lived on hopes that you'd return
And that's how I got by

The agony of loneliness
Just got too much for me
I couldn't wait forever
Needing love so desperately

So I found new lips to kiss me
New arms to hold me tight
I found new love and happiness
To fill these empty nights

You took my love for granted
Now my heart has found a new home
I couldn't wait forever
Forever's just too long

I couldn't wait forever
Forever's just too long
