It's a tragedy in waiting
And there's something on my mind
It's hard enough for me to carry on
Well it's a tragedy in waiting
And there's something on my mind
It's hard enough for me to carry on
Well call me pleasure if you like
But believe me when I say
I will learn to change it all
It's not like I'm asking for the sky to open up
I don't believe that's possible just yet
Well it's a tragedy in waiting
And there's something on my mind
It's hard enough for me to carry on
Have you ever left your suitcase
Open long after you land
Cause you're scared to find a way
To love them close
A destiny may wait and there's present in hand
But they forgot to tell me how to end this show
Could it be that I'm the one
Who holds my hand behind my back
Well I know that this is possible by now
But destiny may take me so far from where I am
But it's hard enough for me to hold it down
You want me so badly to give right into you
But I'm afraid that cannot be the case today
You dream of land and marriage, just me and you
Oh my mind won't you leave me be
Won't you just leave me for me
Love is the only way out of this
It's the only way I can get back into it
Be an afternoon or more
Beyond the breaking of the day
There is always something waiting there for me
I've asked again and then again
Just to glimpse into my day
But someone's trying to make it hard on me
Could it be that I'm the one
Who tied my hand behind my back
Well I know that this is possible right now
It's a tragedy in waiting
When there's something plagueing the mind
And it's hard enough for love to hold me down
Well, I don't believe it
Well, I can't believe it
Well, I don't believe it
I'll never believe it
No, so I'm gone
You want me so badly to give right into you
Well I'm afraid that cannot be the case today
So you dream of land and marriage, just me and you
Oh my mind won't you just leave me be
Won't you just leave me for me
For me, for me, for me
