Can't Wait

Album: Time Out of Mind (1997)
  • I can't wait, wait for you to change your mind
    It's late, I'm trying to walk the line
    Well, it's way past midnight
    And there's some people all around
    Some on their way up, some on their way down
    The air burns and I'm trying to think straight
    An' I don't know how much longer I can wait.

    I'm your man, I'm trying to recover the sweet love that we knew
    You understand that my heart can't go on beating without you
    Well your loveliness has wounded me
    I'm reeling from the blow
    I wish I knew what it was that keeps me loving you so
    I'm breathing hard, standing at the gate
    Ah, but I don't know how much longer I can wait.

    Skies are gray
    I'm looking for anything that will bring a happy glow
    Night or day, it doesn't matter where I go anymore, I just go
    If I ever saw you coming I don't know what I might do
    I'd like to think I could control myself but it isn't true
    That's how it is when things disintegrate
    And I don't know how much longer I can wait.

    I'm doomed to love you
    I've been rolling through stormy weather
    I'm thinking of you
    And all the places we could roam together.

    It's mighty funny
    The end of time has just begun
    Oh, honey, after all these years you're still the one
    Well, I'm strolling through the lonely graveyard of my mind
    I left my life with you somewhere back there along the line
    I thought somehow that I would be spared this fate
    I don't know how much longer I can wait. Writer/s: BOB DYLAN, ROBERT ALLEN ZIMMERMAN
