Nicole Atkins – We Wait Too Long lyrics

Stranger in the rain outside my glass
Every night you pass, a vision in my mind
Your hand reaches out for the taking
Danger tantalizing me with somebody like you
Can be too heartbreaking for me to bear
All the birds are singing out to please take care


We wait too long for the moment to be right
We wait too long for the perfect danger to alight
Wait too long

I regret to say that it's so sad
Never gotten 'round to things that I imagine that we've tried
Waiting for a message to draw near
That can dam the tears that well up the twinkling of an eye


Intone our common prayers so contrite
Ugly rumors have yet gathered,
Yet things are still polite
But I will soon find something wrong for you to find in me
I will bend the melody until it bleeds
