[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]
C
I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna
G
I don’t wanna wait in vain
C
I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna
G
I don’t wanna wait in vain [no I]
C
I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna
G
I don’t wanna wait in vain [no no no I]
C
I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna
G
I don’t wanna wait in vain, oh

C
I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna, I don’t wanna
G
I don’t wanna wait in vain
C
It’s your love that I’m waiting on
G
It’s my love that you’re running from
C
It’s your love that I’m waiting on
G
It’s my love that you’re running from
