Bridge:
     C                    G
I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love
     C                    G
I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love

Verse 1:

     C                    G
From the very first time I rest my eyes on you girl
     C                   G
My heart said “follow through”
     C                    G
But I know now that I’m way down on your line
     C                  G
But the waiting feel is fine
     C                  G
So don’t treat me like a puppet on a string
     C                   G
Cause I know I could do my thing
     C                    G
Don’t talk to me as if you think I’m dumb
     C                    G
I wanna know when you’re gonna come....see

Bridge:

     C                    G
I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love
     C                    G
I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love
     C                    G
I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love

Chorus
          C7       D7
Cause if summer’s here

Cm             Fm
I’m still waiting there

C7        D7
Winter’s here

Cm                    Fm
And I’m still waiting there

Verse 2:

              C                           G
Like I said...It’s been 3 years since I’m knocking on your door
C                         G
And I still can knock some more
C                    G
Ooh girl, ooh girl is it feasible? I wanna know now
C                  G
For I to knock some more
        C                 G
Ya see, in life I know there’s lots of grief
C                   G
But your love is my relief
      C                      G
Tears in my eyes burn, tears in my eyes burn
      C                      G
While I’m waiting, while I’m waiting for my turn

Bridge:

     C                    G
I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love
     C                    G
I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love
     C                    G
I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love
     C                    G
I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love
     C                    G
I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love, oh

Outro:
