  1. Why Do I Wait

From the album Jenny Rockis

Lyrics

Well, I’m so tired, expired
Ripped up, ragged; wicked and wired
I feel like giving up, giving up on this love
I try to fill you up, but it’s never enough

When will you let go, let me know
So I can take my mama to the grocery store
I been neglecting, she been expecting me
To snap out of this funk I been projecting

Why do I wait here for you
I guess it’s just what I’m used to
I’m aching, you’re making, me blue
Don’t leave me hanging like a fool

Your eyes a light tint gave me a slight hint
Causing me to wear out all my fingerprints
Oh, we be widespread, all up in my bed
A wild ride, got satisfied, my lips turned to lead

Now I get gray hairs, blank stares
A flower that you picked for me
But who the hell cares
You’ve been retreating
Your lack of heating
Forced me to a indulge in overeating

Why do I wait here for you
I guess it’s just what I’m used to
I’m aching, you’re making, me blue
Don’t leave me hanging like a fool


I’m gonna swig some grain
To kill the pain
You’re inhumane
Twisting my brain
Oh, It’d be such a shame
To stay in this thang
So I’m gonna break these chains
That bear your name
So I can live again, yeah

Well, I’m so tired, expired
Ripped up, ragged; wicked and wired
So now I’m giving up, giving up on this love
I tried to fill you up, but it was never enough

I’m gonna let go, lettin’ you know
I’m gonna tell my mama I don’t see you no mo’
I been reflecting, she been directing
Me to throw out all your junk I been collecting

Why did I wait here for you
I guess it’s just what I was used to
Mistaken, I’m breaking the blues
You won’t leave me hanging like a fool
