I been waiting here for so long
Counting all the holes in my shoes
You've been singing such a different song
I ain't gonna punch you in the eye
Just 'cause you tell a crazy lie

Even so
I knew how you would go
I'm always the last to know
You're trying to love me too

You've been wasting so much time away
Never seem to get through to you
You've been lazy now it's time to pay
Who's gonna be the one to say
Who's gonna make the move today

I won't stand by
Asking you questions why
Not while you say you're too shy
To look me in the eye

If you were mine
I'd never need to wipe the smile from my face
It ain't no crime
What we'd achieve if we stayed in this place

You said, "Once I had a hold on you
And I believed you first time around
But now you don't know what you're trying to do
So when you turn around and realize
I'm not around to dry your eyes"

Then you'll know
It's crazy to let me go
You're always the last to know
I'm trying to love you too

If you were mine
I'd never need to wipe the smile from my face
It ain't no crime
What we'd achieve if we stayed in this place

If you kept your promise, baby
Everything would stay the same
But I can't shake the feeling you're searching maybe
For another love to blame

If you were mine
I'd never need to wipe the smile from my face
It ain't no crime
What we'd achieve if we stayed in this place
