Feat. Musiq Soulchild

Chorus:

Why'd I wait, I waited too long,
I waited too long, too long, too long, too long!
Oh I play and I waited too long,
I waited too long, too long, too long!

I know that as long as I'll keep on drinkin
The time will keep on tickin
But as the years went by I played my odds
And realized something missing!
And Every seconds counts when you check your account
And you checkin account so your checks been a bounce.
And maybe while my card got declined
Cause I’m too busy trying to fight time,
So it’s like a pawn shop how we wait our romance,
I took so long and now I got no chance
Cause when I went back to get the watch with gold band
I realize time don't wait for no man

Chorus:
Why'd I wait, I waited too long,
I waited too long, too long, too long, too long!
Oh I play and I waited too long,
I waited too long, too long, too long!

Now askin people wait a minute!
But I could surely understand if you didn't!
But if you wont take a chance and give me a chance,
Then it’s safe to assume that we finished
Cause I learned once the dating game, becomes the waiting game,
Only time will tell if things could stay the same.
But now, I see you doin what you gotta do,
And I’m nothing more than an obstacle.
Fools make a movement on impossible,
And that's more emotional than logical.
So if it were the same to describe how I feel,
I guess you could call it a bad timing for real!

Chorus:
Why'd I wait, I waited too long,
I waited too long, too long, too long, too long!
Oh I play and I waited too long,
I waited too long, too long, too long!

So as the days keep adding up
I guess we’re falling in and out of love!
In and out of love, in and out of love!
As the years keep falling by
I guess we’re falling in and out of love!
In and out of love, in and out of love!

Chorus:
While I wait, I waited too long,
I waited too long, too long, too long, too long!
Lord I pray and I waited too long,
I waited too long, too long, too long!
