Jack Johnson – Sitting, Waiting, Wishing

[Verse 1]
Well I was sitting, waiting, wishing
You believed in superstitions
Then maybe you’d see the signs

The Lord knows that this world is cruel
I’m not the Lord, no I’m just a fool
Learning loving somebody don’t make them love you

[Chorus]
Must I always be waiting, waiting on you
Must I always be playing, playing your fool

[Verse 2]
I sang your songs, I danced your dance
I gave your friends all a chance
But putting up with them
Wasn’t worth never having you

Maybe you’ve been through this before
But it’s my first time so please ignore
The next few lines because they’re directed at you

[Chorus]
Must I always be waiting, waiting on you
Must I always be playing, playing your fool

[Verse 3]
I keep playing your part but it’s not my scene
Want this plot to twist I’ve had enough mystery
Keep building it up then shooting me down
But I’m already down

Just wait a minute
Just sitting, waiting
Just wait a minute
Just sitting, waiting

Well, if I was in your position
I’d put down all my ammunition
I’d wonder why’d it taken me so long

But Lord knows that I’m not you
And if I was, I wouldn’t be so cruel
Because waiting on love isn’t so easy to do

[Chorus][x2]
Must I always be waiting, waiting on you
Must I always be playing, playing your fool
