Jack Johnson – Wrong Turn lyrics

And I'll wait here a while
Just long enough to be sure
That you didn't make a wrong turn
And I'll wait long enough
Maybe an hour or two
Before I decide it wasn't me, it was you
It wasn't me it was you
And I would like you to know
Although it seems sad to say
This was only the worst hour of my day
The worst hour of my day
How long has it been on your mind?
Do you think about it when we laugh?
I think that it's a big mistake
Because I think that we could make it last
Even if it's just for a while
And I'll wait here for now
Just long enough to be sure
That you really want to go through with this
Because I don't really want to go through with this
Do you really want to go through with this?

    Story of lovers who were challenged by circumstances where the girl decided to go with someone else (with untold reasons) instead of following her heart. And the guy hopes that the girl changes her mind cause he's willing to wait no matter how long it's gonna take, he'll take his chances. The "hour-or-two" is just an expression but it's totally a reverse psych hoping the girl to decide sooner so she won't lose him, when actually he will wait for her forever.
