"Wait" is a moody, upbeat ballad, which finds singer Adam Levine trying to salvage a failing relationship.
Wait, can you turn around, can you turn around?
Just wait, can we work this out, can we work this out?
Just wait, can you call me please?
Cause I wanna be with you
Levine knows he's been a bad boyfriend, but he still loves the girl. He pleads with her to stay and hear him out rather than walking out on him.
