“Don’t Wait for Me” Lyrics

Don’t wait for me, I’ll be a long time comin’
Unless by then you have told me something
That shows how much you care

I’ve done much more than as a man I should have
Why did you not do all you could have
To show how much you care?

Over and again I wondered, “Was I wrong?”
I keep thinking I maybe should have come along
But then there comes a time in every man’s life
When he must be strong
And my time’s come
So if you’re gone then I guess I’ll cry
And hold to memories of what might’ve been
And when I finally leave, that will show how much I care

Over and again I wondered, “Was I wrong?”
I kept thinking that I maybe should have come along
But then there comes a time in every man’s life
When he must be strong
And my time’s come
So if you’re gone then I guess I’ll cry
And hold to memories of what might’ve been
And when I finally leave, that will show how much I care
