Lady

Album: 24 Karat Gold: Songs From the Vault (2014)
  • Come lately, I just keep waiting
    I see nothing out there
    The sun keeps throwin' out the light from the clouds
    But there's no light in here
    I know that things have got to change
    But how to change them isn't clear
    I'm tired of knockin' on doors
    When there's nobody there
    You know I'm tired of knockin' on doors
    When there's nobody there

    And the time keeps going on by
    And I wonder what is to become of me
    And I'm unsure, I can't see my way
    And he says, "Lady, you don't have to see"

    And the time keeps going on by
    And I wonder what is to become of me
    And I'm unsure, I can't see my way
    And he says, "Lady, you don't need to see"
    And he says, "Lady, you don't need to see"

    Come lately, I just keep waiting
    I see nothing out there
    The sun keeps throwin' out its light from the clouds
    But there's no light in here
    I know that things have got to change
    But how to change them isn't clear
    I'm tired of knockin' on doors
    When there's nobody there
    You know, "I'm tired of knockin' on doors
    When there's nobody there"

    And the time keeps going on by
    And I wonder what is to become of me
    And I'm unsure, I can't see my way
    And he says, "Lady, you don't need to see"

    And the time keeps going on by
    And I wonder what is to become of me
    And I'm unsure, I can't see my way
    And he says, "Lady, you don't need to see"

    And the time keeps going on by
    And I wonder what is to become of me
    And I'm unsure, I can't see my way
    And he says, "Lady, you don't need to see"
    And he says, "Lady, you don't need to see"
    And he says, "Maybe, you don't need to see"
