Waiting For That Day Lyrics

by George Michael

So everyday I see you in some other face
They crack a smile, talk a while
And try to take your place
My memory serves me far too well

I just sit here on this mountain thinkin' to myself
You're a fool boy, why don't you go down find somebody
Find somebody else?
My memory serves me far too well

It's not as though we just broke up
It's not as though it was yesterday
But somethin' I just can't explain
Somethin' in me needs this pain
I know I'll never see your face again

C'mon now
I've got to be strong now

Now everybody's talkin' about this new decade
Like you say the magic numbers
Then just say goodbye to the stupid mistakes you made
My memory serves me far too well

Don't you know that the years will come and go
Some of us will change our lives
Some of us still have nothing to show
Nothing baby, but memories

And if of these wounds they are self-inflicted
I don't really know, how my poor heart could have protected me
But if I have to carry this pain
If you will not share the blame
I deserve to see your face again

C'mon now
You don't have to be so strong now
Come back, come back, come back, come back
Come back, come back, come back

Come back to me, darling
I will make it worth your while
Come back to your baby
I miss your kiss, I miss your smile

Seems to me the peace I search to find
That ain't goin' to be mine until you say you will
Don't you keep me waitin' for that day
I know, I know, I know you hear these words that I say
I know, I know, I know, I know

You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want

Come back, come back, come back, come back
Come back, come back
