  • I never felt nothing in the world like this before
    Now I'm missing you, and I'm wishing you would come back through my door
    Oh, why did you have to go?
    You could have let me know
    So now I'm all alone

    Girl, you could have stayed but you wouldn't give me a chance
    With you not around, it's a little bit more than I can stand
    Oh, and all my tears, they
    Keep runnin' down my face
    Why did you turn away?

    So why does your pride make you run and hide?
    Are you that afraid of me?
    But I know it's a lie what you keep inside
    This is not how you want it to be

    So, baby, I will wait for you
    'Cause I don't know what else I can do
    Don't tell me I ran out of time
    If it takes the rest of my life
    Baby, I will wait for you
    If you think I'm fine it just ain't true
    I really need you in my life
    No matter what I have to do
    I'll wait for you

    Been a long time since you called me
    (How could you forget about me?)
    You gotta be feeling crazy
    How can you walk away
    (When) everything stays the same?
    I just can't do it, baby

    What will it take to make you come back?
    Girl, I told you what it is, and it just ain't like that
    Why can't you look at me?
    You're still in love with me
    Don't leave me crying

    Baby, why can't we just, just start over again
    Get it back to the way it was?
    If you give me a chance, I can love you right
    But you're telling me it won't be enough

    So, baby, I will wait for you
    'Cause I don't know what else I can do
    Don't tell me I ran out of time
    If it takes the rest of my life
    Baby, I will wait for you
    If you think I'm fine it just ain't true
    I really need you in my life
    No matter what I have to do
    I'll wait for you

    So why does your pride make you run and hide?
    Are you that afraid of me?
    But I know it's a lie what you're keeping inside
    That is not how you want it to be

    Baby, I will wait for you
    Oh
    Baby, I will wait for you
    If it's the last thing I do

    Baby, I will wait for you
    'Cause I don't know what else I can do
    Don't tell me I ran out of time
    If it takes the rest of my life
    Baby, I will wait for you
    If you think I find it just ain't true
    I really need you in my life
    No matter what I have to do
    I'll wait for you

    I'll be waiting Writer/s: Mikkel Eriksen, Phillip Jackson, Tor Hermansen
