LyricsEdit

Words only won’t suffice
Roses and sacrifice for you
Darling don’t get me wrong
I've loved for long enough to tell


You’re not slowing down
Waiting for anyone anymore
You know just what you want


Spent too much time apart
God bless, we got to start again
Your heart’s been suffering
I try to hold it every now and then


You’re not slowing down
Waiting for anyone anymore
You know just what you need


Our life together
Couldn’t start too soon
So we had to settle for a
Short honeymoon


Move heaven and earth for you
Prove we can make it through the pain
Can’t always disagree
We’ll find somewhere to meet I know
Between our wildest dreams
And where reality seems to fall


(I’m not slowing down)
I’m not slowing down
(Waiting for)
I’m not waiting for anyone anymore
I know just what I want
And I know just what I need
I know just what I want
