    im tired of lookin
    im tired of waiting
    im tired of trying
    im tired of bein patient
    for love...

    i cant, i wont wait another day
    im gone, theres gotta be another way
    to find happiness, cuz im tired of the lonliness
    waitin for understandin, commitment, and holyness

    i havent given up
    im just not livin up
    to the expectations of love
    the same situations, the same effect
    im trading all the pain for some respect
    im not angry, im just determined to keep my heart whole this time
    its been mistreated, its been broken so many times

    i do not hate love, im just not chasing it
    im gonna find myself b4 i find my ex's replacement
    better yet, im gonna let it discover me
    i refuse to let another see
    me down and out, cryin and screamin
    watchin the door and seein
    many people that "loved" me leavin
    im not bitter, no im not even sad
    im just determined, is that so bad?

    im just...
    im tired of lookin
    im tired of waiting
    im tired of trying
    im tired of bein patient
    for love...

    *I felt ya piece/peace**This one is fo u :)

    have faith
    though u tire in ya wait
    when u grow in despair
    when u cease to care
    have faith
    love is lessons learned in harsh reality
    u R blessed wit knowledge of verity
    no one else can deceive u
    u will know tru love b/cuz of what u been thru
    trifilin chics
    one night stand tryst
    is that what u seek?
    tru love demands the wait, so be meek
    somewhere amidst the flood of deception
    stands the woman 4 your connection
    and she is as weary as thee
    waitin to find the man for she
    shes tired of ¡°eeeeey Baaayyybyyyy guuurl¡±
    she been waitin for u
    but wit all the frontin peoples out there she got tired too
    tired of lookin¡¦for love?
    Then stop¡¦leave it to him up above
    U followed ya own mind long enough
    Let him bring u the love to wake u up
    Out of ya weariness out of ya despair
    Out of ya search b4 u know it she¡¯ll be standin there
    Wonderin why it took so long for yall to be
    But u must pass through fire to be GOLD complete
    Let go¡¦let HIM take ya pain
    Let go¡¦get ready to love again
    HE has ya best interests in mind
    HE has ya queen in mind
    And when u relax and release tru love u will find
    Have faith

    You've captured my very sentiments exactly...why has love been so elusive to those like you and me???
