Don’t Wait Too Long – Madeleine Peyroux!

You can cry a million tears,
you can wait a million years.
If you think that time will change your ways,
don’t wait too long.

When your morning turns to night,
who’ll be loving you by candlelight.
If you think that time will change your ways,
don’t wait too long.

Maybe I got a lot to learn,
time can slip away.
Sometimes you got to lose it all,
before you find your way.

Take a chance, play your part.
Make romance, it might brake your heart.
But if you think that time will change your ways,
don’t wait too long.

It may rain, it may shine,
love will age like fine red wine.
But if you think that time will change your ways,
don’t wait too long.

Maybe you and I got a lot to learn,
don’t waist another day.
Maybe you got to lose it all,
before you find your way.

Take a chance, play your part.
Make romance, it might brake your heart.
But if you think that time will change your ways,
don’t wait too long.
Don’t wait, don’t wait.
