Featuring sarcastic and biting language, this song expresses the feelings while waiting for someone to make up their mind regarding a relationship.

lyrics

I'm sorry is all you can say
That's fine with me, as long as you stay on the line
I've got so much love to give
But if I'm always waiting
Where will I begin?

My feet are tapping
My thumbs they twist
And I wait, and I wait, and I wait
And I wanna look away but I resist

I think I've been here
Three times this week
And without, and without and without
A word or a call, you've brought me to my knees
Oh can't you see?

I'm sorry is all you can say
That's fine with me, as long as you stay on the line
I've got so much love to give
But if I'm always waiting
Where will I begin?

I'm not a back burner
There's no smoke anymore
I'm done treading water
Say the word and I'm yours

I'm like believing in second tries
But don't get to thinking
I want to count that high
I've found my patience
Time and time again
But looking and searching
For something I shouldn't have lost
Isn't how I like time spent

I'm sorry is what I will say
For holding too tight, and pushing away
It's just I've got so much love to give
But if I'm always waiting
Where will I begin?

I'm not a back burner
There's no smoke anymore
I'm done treading water
Say the word and I'm yours
