  • When I first saw your face
    I knew that I could not hesitate
    You said 'Baby, don't go too fast'
    If we do then it may not last
    Time went on and I waited for you
    I didn't know what else I could do
    I thought that we'd always be together
    You said 'Hold on it just gets better'

    And I believed you, I kept holding on
    You think that I can never leaved you
    You think I'm not that strong, you're wrong

    Love won't wait
    Forever and a day
    Love must live in the here and now
    Don't ask me how I know

    So here I am with my heart on my sleeves
    You said, 'Baby put your trust in me'
    But I've come to the end of the line
    And you've wasted up all of my precious time
    Wanted to be something special to you
    Everybody is somebody's fool
    Won't be a fool, no you've got me all wrong
    You don't know what you had till it's gone

    love takes time
    But you've been taking too long
    Time never waited for anyone
    Don't wait too long or I'll be gone
    Don't wait too long or I'll be gone
    I'll be gone

    That was an empty thing that I wouldn't do
    You led me on, you even said 'I love you'
    How can we go on when it's tearing up apart
    Are you going to break my heart
    Cause I believed you Writer/s: MADONNA CICCONE, SHEP PETTIBONE
