  • Well I'm so above you
    And it's plain to see
    But I came to love you anyway
    So you tore my heart out
    And I don't mind bleeding
    Any old time to keep me waiting
    Waiting, waiting

    Oh, oh oh I got a love that keeps me waiting
    Oh, oh oh I got a love that keeps me waiting
    I'm a lonely boy
    I'm a lonely boy
    Oh, oh oh I got a love that keeps me waiting

    Well your mama kept you but your daddy left you
    And I should've done you just the same
    But I came to love you
    And I want to flee
    Any old time you keep me waiting
    Waiting, waiting

    Oh, oh oh I got a love that keeps me waiting
    Oh, oh oh I got a love that keeps me waiting
    I'm a lonely boy
    I'm a lonely boy
    Oh, oh oh I got a love that keeps me waiting

    Oh, oh oh I got a love that keeps me waiting
    Oh, oh oh I got a love that keeps me waiting
    I'm a lonely boy
    I'm a lonely boy
    Oh, oh oh I got a love that keeps me waiting Writer/s: Brian Joseph Burton, Daniel Quine Auerbach, Patrick James Carney
