"WAITING GAME"

REWRITTEN LYRICS

[Verse 1]
I fell in love with you right there in the kitchen
But you were so upset so I tried to listen
You know that I
I hate when you cry
Maybe it should've scared me but it didn't
Push me away and keep me guessing
You know that I
I'll stay every time



You try my best to just keep it all hidden  
 Beautiful, feminine, sensitive, precious
But you're like this wild fire burning and giving
Off heat and off light

I get burned all the time 
Heart broken like mine

[Pre-Chorus 1]
But if you were a different girl
It'd be simpler, that's for sure
Wouldn't it be nice to be a cool wind?
Always keep it breezy
Ooh yeah, but I don't want it easy

[Chorus]
No I am who I am
And I am a lot to handle
You do the best you can
But I'll fight your uphill battles

[Verse 2]
You say I act like it's my job to get so emotional
Hell it's my business to get so emotional
About to lose it
Just below the surface, ooh yeah
Walking around with a knot in my stomach
Got you so high but we're ready to plummet
Going down, going down, going down, going down
Oh no

[Pre-Chorus 1]
But if I were a different girl
It'd be simpler, that's for sure
Wouldn't it be nice to be a cool wind?
Always keep it breezy
Ooh yeah, but I am not that easy

[Chorus]
No I am who I am
And I am a lot to handle
You do the best you can
But I am an uphill battle
I'll be your solid ground
And I'll be your biggest gamble
You do the best you can, I know

[Bridge]
So baby baby keep on climbing
I'll wrap my arms around you tight
I'll take you to the highest mountain
I'll take you to the top tonight

[Pre-Chorus 2]
If I were a different girl
Yeah, it'd be simpler, that's for sure
But you know you wouldn't get the sparks from the clash, the high from the crash
The curse and the kiss, they will make this thing last

[Chorus]
No I am who I am
And I am a lot to handle
You do the best you can
But I am... an uphill battle
I'll be your solid ground
And I'll be your biggest gamble
You do the best you can
But I am an uphill battle, ooh
An uphill battle
An uphill battle, ooh

ORIGINAL LYRICS

[Verse 1]
I cried on your shoulder right there in the kitchen
Our friends in the next room, so close they could listen
And I don't know why
I laugh when I cry
I'm not the girl that you thought you were getting
I'm way more complex, yeah I got them sharp edges
I'm solid as ice, oh
But I break all the time

[Pre-Chorus 1]
But if I were a different girl
It'd be simpler, that's for sure
Wouldn't it be nice to be a cool wind?
Always keep it breezy
Ooh yeah, but I am not that easy

[Chorus]
No I am who I am
And I am a lot to handle
You do the best you can
But I am an uphill battle

[Verse 2]
You say I act like it's my job to get so emotional
Hell it's my business to get so emotional
About to lose it
Just below the surface, ooh yeah
Walking around with a knot in my stomach
Got you so high but we're ready to plummet
Going down, going down, going down, going down
Oh no

[Pre-Chorus 1]
But if I were a different girl
It'd be simpler, that's for sure
Wouldn't it be nice to be a cool wind?
Always keep it breezy
Ooh yeah, but I am not that easy

[Chorus]
No I am who I am
And I am a lot to handle
You do the best you can
But I am an uphill battle
I'll be your solid ground
And I'll be your biggest gamble
You do the best you can, I know

[Bridge]
So baby baby keep on climbing
I'll wrap my arms around you tight
I'll take you to the highest mountain
I'll take you to the top tonight

[Pre-Chorus 2]

Yeah, it'd be simpler, that's for sure
But you know you wouldn't get the sparks from the clash, the high from the crash
The curse and the kiss, they will make this thing last

[Chorus]
No I am who I am
And I am a lot to handle
You do the best you can
But I am... an uphill battle
I'll be your solid ground
And I'll be your biggest gamble
You do the best you can
But I am an uphill battle, ooh
An uphill battle
An uphill battle, ooh
