I could never pretend that I don't love you.
You could never pretend that I'm your man.
That's exactly the way that I want it.
That's exactly the way that I am.

And you call me in the morning with your troubles
Takin' it downtown every night
I could never place the stars at night above ya.
I got my hands on the ground,
And you know I'm right.

You wait so long
You wait so long
You wait so long
You wait so long

It's a coffee stained earth ever time it happens.
Liven up honey it ain't that bad.
Any afterthought rose to recognition
Like every other coffin that I had

And your Buick broke down in Winnemucca,
Fall to your knees and you pray to the lord
Then you take up hope at the politicians:
Nothing happens in this burnt out town anymore.

You wait so long
You wait so long
You wait so long
You wait so long

And your hollows on like a frozen freight train
You know that I help you if I can
But I'm just a raindrop in a river
Just a little itty-bitty grain of sand

And you know that I'm doomed to repeat this
With all the bad habits that I've learned
But it's better than your fiber 'n fornication
And all the dirty money that you earn.

You wait so long
You wait so long
You wait so long
You wait so long

You wait so long
You wait so long
You wait so long
You wait so long
