Patty Griffin The Longer You Wait Lyrics

Last updated:

Well I'm tired of this, baby
Ain't you tired too
We might as well admit
We bit too much to chew
???
Before it's too late, baby
They say the longer you wait
The tighter shut is the gate

We got nothing much in common
But it's just as well
Never intertwined
We was just parallel
We just didn't gel
Let's dissipate baby
The say the longer you wait
The tighter shut is the gate

Well now I just wanted peace and quiet
I stayed out of trouble
Every time I bit my tongue
My heartache doubled
Now this ain't as hard to figure
Out as a jigsaw puzzle
I can't find a reason now
To keep this thing muzzled

Well now my resolve's been waitin'
For several years straight
It's not that I won't miss you
But I just can't wait to celebrate
And I go wanderin', baby
They say the longer you wait
The tighter shut is the gate
Tighter shut now


This song is also known as The Gate
