lyrics

I was waiting for the call but it never came
I was hoping you’d be there standing in the rain
Oh my lady lay me down and whisper words to me
While your friends that gather round anticipate the deed

All the things you wanted, all the love you gave
All the light inside you turned my way
I was waiting out there just beyond the grave
And no one’ll love you more than me
So settle down – settle down

Avert my eyes and hold my tongue, it’s easier with time
For you to change the thing you love, for me to toe the line
But I’m harsh when I complain, ‘cause maybe you know best
But I need something to retain, a boundary to test

My hurt, my pain, it’s gone away
My shame is such my body aches
But if you want to settle down, don’t wait
Wait, don’t wait, don’t wait
Wait, don’t, wait, don’t, wait
Wait. Don’t. Wait. Don’t.

I was waiting for the fall but I wait in vain
And I was hoping you’d be there to share with me my pain

Oh you settle down, oh you settle down
Oh I won’t settle but I’ll settle down
Oh you settle down, oh you settle down
Oh I won’t settle but I’ll settle down

I was waiting for the call but it never came
