“Do I Wait?” by Ryan Adams

“I waited in the wings for you to appear. But you’re never coming back. We’re never gonna feel like we did. I waited all night. I tried to let you go like a shadow in the light.”

Do I want to say the things I say
when I know that they are wrong?
Do I wait here forever for you? Did you ask me to?

I’ve been waiting here, all night. If you’re not going to show, we’re not gonna fight.
I could stay, forever, if I tried,
surrounded by your face, 
like a shadow in the light.

Do I try and stay still for you,
while the clouds that park here
in the emptiness of the room?
Do you watch me from the corner of your eye?
Do we say goodbye?

I waited in the wings
for you to appear.
But you’re never coming back
and we’re never gonna feel
like we did. I waited all night.
I tried to let you go
like a shadow in the light.

The light, do I wait?
Do I wait for you?
Do I wait?
Do I wait for you?

Do I want to say the things I say
when I know that they are wrong?
Do I wait here forever for you?

Did you ask me to?

I'm routinely overestimated.
