lyrics

I was a teenage pessimist
I never thought that I'd be kissed
By anyone so wonderful as you
And, though I wrote you off my list,
These feelings did persist
In spite of the long wait you put me through

Then one fine day you came around
To pick me up when I was down
That's when I told you that my heart was true
And though it took me by surprise
You took a look into my eyes
And told me that you felt the same way too

Well, I knew you were the one for me all along
But there's one question I've been dwelling on:
Why did you make me have to wait so long?
Why did you make me have to wait so long?

I made my mind up long ago
Never-ever to let go
Although I know your love was overdue
And, even though I hoped and wished,
As a staunch realist,
I never thought this ever would come true

Well, I knew you were the one for me all along
But there's one question I've been dwelling on:
Why did you make me have to wait so long?
Why did you make me have to wait so long?

What changed
To rearrange
The sentiments that live inside your brain?
What changed
And what remains?
Perhaps it doesn't matter anyways.

I was a teenage pessimist
I never thought that I'd be kissed
By anyone so wonderful as you
And though I wrote you off my list
These feelings did persist
In spite of the long wait you put me through

Well, I knew you were the one for me all along
But there's one question I've been dwelling on:
Why did you make me have to wait so long?
Why did you make me have to wait so long?
