"WAITING GAME" (MALE VERSION)

This week I rewrote the lyrics to "Waiting Game" originally written by Jillian Rose Banks ("BANKS") and Chris Taylor ("Sohn").

 

"WAITING GAME"

REWRITTEN LYRICS

[Verse 1] 
Let's talk when we're sober
 All of this arguin' has got me feelin' some other way
Sometimes I wish we were older
 Young love will drive you crazy, I'm convinced Love killed Cobain
This shit is lethal, never peaceful, I got love on the brain
 
[Chorus]  
What if I never even see you 'cause we're both on a stage?
Don't tell me listen to your song because it isn't the same
I don't wanna say your love is a waiting game

 
[Verse 2] 
Baby, let's talk when we're sober  
Cause all this distance got me falling, got me falling apart
I miss your head on my shoulder
I'm sick of sleeping by myself  & dreaming  'bout where you are  
Fuck all these stages, all these people think they know who were are
 
[Chorus]
 What if I never even see you 'cause we're both on a stage?
Don't tell me listen to your song because it isn't the same
I don't wanna say your love is a waiting game

 What if I never even see you 'cause we're both on a stage?
Don't tell me listen to your song because it isn't the same
I don't wanna say your love is a waiting game

ORIGINAL LYRICS

[Verse 1]
I'm thinking it over
The way you make me feel all sexy but it's causing me shame
I wanna lean on your shoulder
I wish I was allowed, but I don't wanna cause any pain
And if I'm feeling like I'm evil, we've got nothing to gain

[Chorus]
What if I never even see you 'cause we're both on a stage?
Don't tell me listen to your song because it isn't the same
I don't wanna say your love is a waiting game

[Verse 2]
Baby, I'm thinking it over
What if the way we started made it something cursed from the start?
What if it only gets colder?
Would you still wrap me up and tell me that you think this was smart?
'Cause lately I've been scared of even thinking 'bout where we are

[Chorus]
What if I never even see you 'cause we're both on a stage?
Don't tell me listen to your song because it isn't the same
I don't wanna say your love is a waiting game

What if I never even see you 'cause we're both on a stage?
Don't tell me listen to your song because it isn't the same
I don't wanna say your love is a waiting game
