[Intro:]
I can't help but wait
Ohh uh
Can't help but wait
Check it out

[Verse 1:]
I see you, you're with him
He ain't right but you don't trip
You stand by, while he lies
Then turn right 'round and forgive

I can't take to see your face, with those tears run down your cheeks
But what can I do
I gotta stay true
'Cause deep down I'm still a G

[Bridge:]
And I don't wanna come between you and your man
Even though I know I treat you better than he can

[Hook:]
Girl I can't help but wait
'Til you get that with him, it don't change
Can't help but wait
'Til you see that with me it ain't the same
Can't help but wait
'Til you, see you, for what you really are
Baby girl you are a star
And I can't help but wait

[Verse 2:]
Listen, it ain't fresh to just let him call the shots
You're a queen, you should be, getting all that someone's got
You should be rocking the latest in purses, bracelets, and watches, your worth
Much more than an occasional "I love you"
I'm thinking of you

[Bridge:]
And I don't wanna come between you and your man (No)
Even though I know I treat you better than he can

[Hook:]
Girl I can't help but wait
'Til you get that with him, it don't change
Can't help but wait
'Til you see that with me it ain't the same
Can't help but wait
'Til you, see you, for what you really are
Baby girl you are a star
And I can't help but wait

[Brakedown:]
Get it together
You can do better
See is believing
And I see what you need so
I'm gone play my position
Let you catch what you've been missin'
I'm calling out

[Hook:]
Girl 'cause I can't help but wait
'Til you get that with him, it don't change
Can't help but wait
'Til you see that with me it ain't the same
Can't help but wait
'Til you, see you, for what you really are
Baby girl you are a star
And I can't help but wait [x2]

[Outro:]
Oh - can't help but wait, babe
No-no-no-no-no-no
I can't help but wait
Oh-oh-oh, can't help but wait
No, no, no

    the video and lyrics pretty much explains it all. he can't do anything but wait until she realizes that she doesn't deserve the guy she's with and that he will be more and better than her current boyfriend.
