Jack Johnson – Sitting, Waiting, Wishing lyrics

Now I was sitting waiting wishing
That you believed in superstitions
Then maybe you'd see the signs
But Lord knows that this world is cruel
No I ain't the Lord, no I'm just a fool
Learning in loving somebody don't make them love you

Must I always be waiting waiting on you?
Must I always be playing playing your fool?

I sing ya songs I dance a dance
I gave ya friends all a chance
Putting up with them wasn't worth never having you
And maybe you been through this before
But it's my first time
So please ignore
The next few lines cause they're directed at you

I can't always be waiting waiting on you
I can't always be playing playing your fool
I keep playing your cards
But it's not my scene
Wont this plot not twist?
I've had enough mystery,
Keep building it up, then shooting me down
But I'm already down
Just wait a minute
Just sit and wait it
Just wait a minute
Just sit and wait it

Well if I was in your position
I'd put down all my ammunition
I'd wondered why'd it taken me so long
But Lord knows that I'm not you
And If I was I wouldn't be so cruel
Cause waiting on love ain't so easy to do

Must I always be waiting waiting on you?
Must I always be playing playing the fool?
No I can't always be waiting waiting on you
I can't always be playing playing your fool, foool

    Mr. Johnson is expressing his disappointment about a girl who doesn't have much feelings for him. He has put up with her friends and is waiting for her love in return. He wants a plot twist or something else than just flirting. He knows it's hard to wait for love but is always helping her thinking that will help the relationship keep progressing. He's always waiting on her and says if I was in your position I'd put down all my ammunition. Jack is saying if I were you I'd just give it a chance instead just keep tearing me down. He's kinda mad too probably that he's giving so much effort and she's doing nothing.
