Sitting Waiting Wishing Lyrics - Jack Johnson

Review The Song (6)

I was sitting, waiting, wishing
You believed in superstitions
Then maybe you'd see the signs.

Lord knows that this world is cruel
And I ain't the lord, no I'm just a fool
Learning lovin somebody don't make them love you.

Must I always be waiting, waiting on you
Must I always be playing, playing your fool.

I sang your songs, I danced your dance
I gave your friends, all a chance
Putting up with them wasn't worth never having you

Oh, maybe you've been through this before
But it's my first time, so please ignore
The next few lines, cause they're directed at you.

I can't always be waiting, waiting on you
I can't always be playing, playing your fool.

I keep playing your part
But it's not my scene
Want this plot to twist
I've had enough mystery
Keep building it up
Then shooting me down
But I'm already down

Just wait a minute
Just sitting, waiting
Just wait a minute
Just sitting, waiting

Well if I was in your position
I'd put down all my ammunition
I'd wonder why it had taken me so long

But Lord knows that I'm not you
and if I was I wouldn't be so cruel
cause waitin' on love ain't so easy to do

Repeat Chorus
Must I always be waiting, waiting on you
Must I always be playing, playing your fool
No I can't always be waiting, waiting on you
I can't always be playing, playing your fool, fool

Exactly how I feel | Reviewer: P-O | 5/26/10

I'm about in the exact same situation as this song describes, apart the putting up with friends side, but the rest relates exactly the situation I'm in. This song is so great that I listen to it all day... hoping that the opposite of the song will happen, that one day she will understant the full extent of how I feel towards her and do her part to know me better...

Amazing song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/25/09

This song speaks to me on so many levels. It's not even just about loving someone and not having them love you. But more just them not being able to make the sacrifices it takes to have a committment/real intimacy.

I can really relate to this song right now. I didn't realize it until I started to learn how to play it. My girlfriend of a year and a half just broke up with me a few days ago saying that she loves me and can see us getting married, but can't have that right now. So I'm stuck waiting on her to decide that she wants to be with me

(5 stars) | Reviewer: your mom | 6/29/07

i can totally relate to the lyrics. It's about how you can be in love with someone so much, and that person just doesn't feel that way. And so it's hard to at least just be friends

Awesome | Reviewer: Mohammed Maqsoud | 6/6/07

A beautiful's who can relate to it knows how it feels...acoustic play has been done wonderfully...The lyrics get you man!

I haven't heard this song in three years. I remembered it one morning and it's exactly how I feel at this moment. Thank you, Jack Johnson, for this song.
