    Last night, round the corner
    waitin' at the end of the block
    wonderin' how much longer
    i'll be starin' at the clock?
    yesterday, you must have felt me
    Wearing my heart for all to see
    not the substance inside
    (never did I confide)
    telling you later that night
    how i'm just too tired to fight
    my words became twisted
    after standin round double fisted
    your promises to call never come through
    and, all i really need is just to talk,
    no, see . . .
    no, feel you.

    you'll see me tomorrow . . .maybe
    did you forget that i am a lady?
    that you're my only one
    that i'm not in it for the fun
    take the car and the diamonds away
    baby, you think thats why i stayed
    so true to you
    all i want is for this to be through
    and, for my head and heart to be on the same page
    for someone else to feel this rage
    to be able to take away this pain
    for all of my efforts to not have been in vain

    and i know you have your life
    and that your not ready to take a wife
    and you don't want to hurt me
    but da*n it, T-, can't you see
    this honesty is killing me
    never before have I felt so vulnerable
    you make it like the decision is amicable
    i don't have a choice
    lose you and i have lost my voice

    i know you have those four kids
    but for years this ain't just been bout biz
    you act like your woman don't know
    are you waiting for it to come to blow
    to exhaust every option
    before makin concessions
    and staying with me
    til your next lady be
    round the corner, at the end of the block
    waitin, watchin and starin at the clock
