Waiting For Me While I'm Waiting For Her?


I'm not as willing as I think I am

I cannot stand up and be the man

The manhood in my body

__I cannot show

If the man in my body

__is really even a man

____I don't know

Maybe the boy in my body

__just dominates

The struggle to wait for love

__is long

Why can't she just show up

__and end my suffering?

Who ever she is

__she's made me wait for too long

I can almost say "I resent her for it"

Look at all the bullshit she put me thru

__just waiting for her

I don't even wanna think about

__all of what's been happening

____while I've been waiting


__not so patiently

Maybe she's waiting for me to be a man

Well, she'll be waiting for forever
