Ryan Adams – Do I Wait lyrics

Do I want to say the things I say, when I know that they are wrong
Do I wait here forever for you, would you ask me to?

I been waiting here, all night
If your not going to show
Were not gunna fight
I could stay, forever, if I tried
Surrounded by things, like a shadow in the light

Do I try and stay still for you
And the clowns who park here
Fill the emptiness of the room
Do you watch me from the corner of your eye
Do we say goodbye

I waited in the ways
For you to appear
But your never coming back
Your never gunna feel

Like we did, I waited all night
I tried to let you go
Like a shadow in the light

The light...

Do I wait
Do I wait... for you
Do I wait
Do I wait... for you

Do I wait here forever for you,
Did you ask me to?
