Wondering

Album: The Young And The Hopeless (2002)
  • If you want me to wait
    I would wait for you
    If you tell me to stay
    I would stay right through
    If you don't want to say
    Anything at all
    I'm happy wondering

    Go!

    Yeah, yeah

    Since I was a young man
    I never was a FUN MAN
    I never had a plan and no security then
    Ever since I met you
    I never could forget you
    I only want to get you right here next to me

    Cause everybody (a-whoa-oh-oh)
    Needs someone that they can trust in
    And you're somebody (a-whoa-oh-oh)
    That I found just in time

    If you want me to wait
    I would wait for you
    If you tell me to stay
    I would stay right through
    If you don't want to say
    Anything at all
    I'm happy wondering

    Now my life is changing
    It's always rearranging
    Always gettin' stranger than I thought it ever could
    Ever since I found you
    I want to be around you
    I want to get down to the point that I need you

    Cause everybody (a-whoa-oh-oh)
    Needs someone that they can trust in
    And you're somebody (a-whoa-oh-oh)
    That I found just in time

    If you want me to wait
    I would wait for you
    If you tell me to stay
    I would stay right through
    If you don't want to say
    Anything at all
    I'm happy wondering

    Go!

    Yeah, yeah
    Yeah, yeah

    Don't tell me
    The bad news
    Don't tell me anything at all
    Just tell me
    That you need me
    And stay right here with me

    If you want me to wait
    I would wait for you
    If you tell me to stay
    I would stay right through
    If you don't want to say
    Anything at all
    I'm happy wondering

    If you want me to wait
    I would wait for you
    If you tell me to stay
    I would stay right through
    If you don't want to say
    Anything at all
    I'm happy wondering Writer/s: BENJI MADDEN, JOEL MADDEN
