You made a mistake, boy, when you took my love for granted
Now you hold a hurting heart that's been disenchanted
You're tellin' everyone that it's just you & me (just you & me)
But you were so wrong (you were so wrong)
To assume that I'd be; listen to me baby
Wait till I give the signal, then go ahead, go ahead, go ahead
Wait till I give the signal, then go ahead, go ahead, go ahead

You've covered too much ground; you're too demandin'
It's time to slow you down; you've got a bad understandin'
You didn't stop to get things clear; things aren't what they really appear
Now you're drownin', drownin' (drownin', drownin')
In your own tears; listen to me baby
Wait till I give the signal, then go ahead, go ahead, go ahead
Wait till I give the signal, then go ahead, go ahead, go ahead

Baby, why can't you hear me? Baby, why can't you hear me?
You've covered too much ground; you've got a bad understandin'
It's time to slow you down; you're too demandin'
You didn't stop to get things clear; things aren't what they really appear
Now you're drownin', drownin' (drownin', drownin')
Now you're drownin', drownin', in your own tears
Ooo yeah, listen to me baby

(repeat & fade):
Wait till I give the signal, then go ahead
