What Are You Waiting For

Verse One:
It’s seven at night; I just found out your secret
Now suddenly my stomach don’t feel right, and I just can’t believe it
The sun starts to fall as the hour turns to nine
But by ten I see you still haven’t called, and I think that I know why

Then finally I hear a ring coming from the phone
So as I answer I swallow my fear and prepare for the blow
What’s that you say? You say you’ve never done this before?
Well, there’s something you need to know anyway, so I won’t hide it anymore

Chorus:
What are you waiting for?
Go on and tell me that it’s over
‘Cause I already know about her
I wanna hear you say it; I promise I can take it
You’ve got nothing to lose
Don’t think about how it’s gonna hurt me
‘Cause I just want you to be happy
Even if my picture won’t be in your heart anymore
What are you waiting for?

Verse Two:
We were always meant, we were always meant to lose
Maybe I left too many words unsaid, like “You’re my life and I love you.”
I’ll try to forget that day when you closed the door
But looking back I’m starting to regret the words I told you before

Chorus:
I said what are you waiting for?
Go on and tell me that it’s over
‘Cause I already know about her
I wanna hear you say it; I promise I can take it
You’ve got nothing to lose
Don’t think about how it’s gonna hurt me
‘Cause I just want you to be happy
Even if my picture won’t be in your heart anymore
What are you waiting for?

Bridge:
And if my tears put up a fight, you don’t have to say you’re sorry
‘Cause if you really want to leave tonight, it’s totally okay with me
I know I’m gonna miss you, but I promise I’ll be okay
‘Cause we’re gonna find our happy ending someday, anyway

Chorus:
So what are you waiting for?
Go on and tell me that it’s over
‘Cause I already know about her
I wanna hear you say it; I promise I can take it
You’ve got nothing to lose
Don’t think about how it’s gonna hurt me
‘Cause I just want you to be happy
Even if my picture won’t be in your heart anymore
What are you waiting for?
