Porter Wagoner – I Couldn't Wait Forever lyrics

I couldn't wait forever, did you expect me to?
I guess you thought I'd never find somebody new
I lived on dreams and promises as long as I could
I couldn't wait forever the way you thought I would

The lonely nights grew longer as I prayed for time to fly
I lived on hopes that you'd return, that's how I got by
The agony of loneliness just got too much for me
I couldn't wait forever, needing love so desperately

So I found new lips to kiss me, new arms to hold me tight
I found new love and happiness to fill my empty nights
You took my love for granted, now my heart has found a new home
I couldn't wait forever, forever's just too long

No, I couldn't wait forever, forever's just too long
