[Chorus:]
Wait a minute
I've been calling out to you
There's nothing more you can say to make me stay
This time I swear I'll stand firm to my word
Wait a minute
I've cried my last cry
For the last time
See you've stayed away a day too late
I've hurt for too long, boy, now you've got to pay

I gotta' dozen things on my mind
Issues with you are the first in line
I never thought it would be true
I was labeled a fool for chasing after you
Shoulda' known what to do
Repercussions all because of you
Manipulating
Aggravating
All of these things come to mind
But . . .

[Chorus:]
Wait a minute
I've been calling out to you
There's nothing more you can say to make me stay
This time I swear I'll stand firm to my word
Wait a minute
I've cried my last cry
For the last time
See you've stayed away a day too late
I've hurt for too long, boy, now you've got to pay

I've wasted far too much time boy
Blaming myself when you're wrong
Can't go on
Year after year
And if you really, really loved me, like you say you do
You woulda' took up for my heart
From the start
Instead, you led me on
Tell me why

[Bridge:]
Now I understand why
You strayed away day after day
You just weren't the man that
Was meant to be
For me
For me

[Chorus:]
Wait a minute
I've been calling out to you
There's nothing more you can say to make me stay
This time I swear I'll stand firm to my word
Wait a minute
I've cried my last cry
For the last time
See you've stayed away a day too late
I've hurt for too long, boy, now you've got to pay
