I sit and I wait and I wait

But no call comes to say,

That you will be late.

No calls come to say I just can't make it today.


My time is passing me by

While I wait watching the sky

The clock is ticking away

But still no word from you today.


I don't ask anymore

Why you did'nt come

I don't think that I really want to know,

I don't think that I really care.


I have learn; not to expect to much,

I have learned to take it all in stride,

I have learned not to feel the pain

I have lean not to sit and wait

Just not to wait, and wait in vain.
