Sitting, Waiting, Wishing

Song Author Jack Johnson Lyrics by: Jack Johnson Performer: Jack Johnson Submitted by: rokkari
[Am]    [G]    [F]    [C]    
Well [Am]I was sitting, waiting, wishing
[G]You believed in superstitions
Then [F]maybe you'd see the [C]signs
The [Am]Lord knows that this world is cruel
I [G]ain't the Lord, I'm just a fool
and [F]in love with somebody don't make them [C]love you

Must I [E]always be [E7]waiting, waiting on [Am]you   
Must I [E]always be [E7]playing, playing your [Am]fool   

I [Am]sang your songs, I danced your dance
I [G]gave your friends all a chance
Putting [F]up with them wasn't worth ever [C]having you
[Am]Maybe you've been through this before
But it's [G]my first time so please ignore
These [F]next few lines because they're directed [C]at you

I can't [E]always be [E7]waiting, waiting on [Am]you   
I can't [E]always be [E7]playing, playing your [Am]fool   

[C]I keep playing your [E]part
But it's not my [F]scene
Want this part to [G]twist
I've had enough myste[C]ry  
Keep building it [E]up  
Then shooting me [F]down
But I'm already [G]down

Just wait a [Am]minute[G]    
Just sitting, [F]waiting[C]    
Just wait a [Am]minute[G]    
Just sitting, [F]waiting[C]    

Well [Am]if I was in your position
I'd [G]put down all my amuntintion
I'd [F]wonder why it had taken me so [C]long

But [Am]the lord knows that I'm not you
and [G]if I was I wouldn't be so cruel
cause [F]waitin' on love ain't so easy [C]to do

Must I [E]always be [E7]waiting, waiting on [Am]you   
Must I [E]always be [E7]playing, playing your [Am]fool   
Must I [E]always be [E7]waiting, waiting on [Am]you   
Must I [E]always be [E7]playing, playing your [Am]fool   
[E7]fool   [Am]fool   


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 ain't the Lord, I'm just a fool
and in love with somebody don't make them love you

Must I always be waiting, waiting on you
Must I always be playing, playing your fool

I sang your songs, I danced your dance
I gave your friends all a chance
Putting up with them wasn't worth ever having you
Maybe you've been through this before
But it's my first time so please ignore
These next few lines because they're directed at you

I can't always be waiting, waiting on you
I can't always be playing, playing your fool

I keep playing your part
But it's not my scene
Want this part 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 amuntintion
I'd wonder why it had taken me so long

But the lord knows that I'm not you
and if I was I wouldn't be so cruel
cause waitin' on love ain't so easy to do

Must I always be waiting, waiting on you
Must I always be playing, playing your fool
Must I always be waiting, waiting on you
Must I always be playing, playing your fool
foolfool
