Roky Erickson – For You lyrics

I have tried and tried everything I know how
I have died and died because of that familiar result I could allow
I have cried and cried uneasy days and sleepless nights too
But there's nothing I do but wait for you

There are other girls I am sure but not for me to go for
The hard life is around but I only try to score
I'd be alone all the time keeping completely true
I who would wait forever wait for you

How must it take so long
I can only try in these unsure times to be strong
Until I can know of something further of I belong
I'll just have to wait and wait and hope and hope and hope
That I'm not wrong

I can't plant any more plants
I can't light any more fires for your pain
I can't lay any more traps
My traps have already been laid with all bait
I could kiss you, so many things I would do with you
But there's nothing I do but wait for you
