Well I'm so above you
And it's plain to see
But I came to love you anyway
So you tore my heart out
And I don't mind bleeding
Any old time to keep me waiting
Waiting, waiting

Chorus:
Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting
Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting
I'm a lonely boy
I'm a lonely boy
Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting

Well your mama kept you but your daddy love you
And I should've done you just the same
But I came to love you
Any old time you keep me waiting
Waiting, waiting

Chorus:
Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting
Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting
I'm a lonely boy
I'm a lonely boy
Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting

Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting
Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting
I'm a lonely boy
I'm a lonely boy
Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting

    These lyrics are wrong... Second verse should be:

    Well your mama kept you but your daddy left you and i shoulda' done you just the same, but i came to love you, am i going to bleed?

    Boy knows that he's a better person than girl but loves her anyway. Girl doesn't love him back but he stay around. She keeps him waiting (he's not getting any) and he should have left her but he doesn't. He's a wuss and she's a cold-hearted b#$@!
