Oh, yeah
You can only push someone so far
You can only break so many hearts
Used to be love one another, and now it's lust for your lover
Baby, I was trying to burn bridges of stone
Yeah-ah-ah

You can only wait, you can only wait so long
You can only wait, you can only wait so long
In this game we play you can't tell right from wrong
But you can only wait so long

There go the memories of yesterday
And here come the poetry of all those things I couldn't say
You can only wait so long before your flower petals are all gone
Baby, I was trying to burn bridges of stone

Yeah-ah
You can only wait, you can only wait so long
You can only wait, you can only wait so long
In this game we play, you can't tell right from wrong
But you can only wait so long
You can only wait, you can only wait so long
You can only wait, you can only wait so long
In this game we play, you can't tell right from wrong
But you can only wait so long

Whoa-ohh, why couldn't you call out for me? (call out to me)
It's not like I was ever far away (ever far away)
Ohh, looked out into the edge and start too deep
And there is nothing left but a million words to say

You can only push someone so far
You can only break so many hearts
We all have memories, and I will serve my time in pain
Don't give in to enemies, they'll just leave you with no ring
We will find a way somehow through this winding twisting road we've found
You won't find me crying for what used to be home, yeah
You won't find me trying to burn bridges of stone

You can only wait, you can only wait so long
You can only wait, you can only wait so long
In this game we play, you can't tell right from wrong
But you can only wait so long
You can only wait, you can only wait so long
You can only wait, you can only wait
In this game we play, you can't tell right from wrong
But you can only wait so long, yeah
You can only wait, you can only wait so long
You can only wait, you can only wait so long
In this game we play, you can't tell right from wrong
But you can only wait so long
In this game we play you can't tell right from wrong
But you can only wait so long

Ohhh, why couldn't you hold on to me?
I was right here, layin' in our bed
Ohhh, it's more than all those things I didn't see
It's all those things I never should have said
