Gilberto Gil – Waiting In Vain lyrics

I don't wanna wait in vain for your love (2x)

From the very first time
I blessed my eyes on you, girl
My heart says "follow through"
But I know that I'm way down on your line
And the waiting feel is fine
So don't treat me like a puppet on a string
'Cause I know how to do my thing
Don't talk to me as if you think I'm dumb

I wanna know when you're gonna come
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love (3x)

'Cause summer is here
I'm still waiting here
Winter is here
And I'm still waiting here

Like I said
It's been three years
Since I'm knocking on your door
And I still can knock some more
Ooh girl, ooh girl, is it feaseble?
I wanna know now
For I to knock some more

In life I know
There's lots of grief
But your love is my relief
Tears in my eyes burn
Tears in my eyes burn
While I'm waiting
While I'm waiting for my turn

I don't wanna waiting in vain for your love
