Waiting In Vain
Bob Marley & The Wailers Lyrics


One, two, three

I don't wanna wait in vain for your love
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love

From the very first time I blessed my eyes on you, girl
My heart says follow t'rough
But I know, now, that I'm way down on your line
But the waitin' feel is fine
So don't treat me like a puppet on a string
'Cause I know how to do my thing
Don't talk to me as if you think I'm dumb
I wanna know when you're gonna come, see

I don't wanna wait in vain for your love
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love
'Cause if summer is here
I'm still waiting there
Winter is here
And I'm still waiting there

Like I said
It's been three years since I'm knockin' on your door
And I still can knock some more
Oh girl, ooh girl, is it feasible?
I wanna know now, for I to knock some more
Ya see, in life I know there's lots of grief
But your love is my relief
Tears in my eyes burn, tears in my eyes burn
While I'm waiting, while I'm waiting for my turn
See

I don't wanna wait in vain for your love
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love

I don't wanna wait in vain for your love, oh
I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna
I don't wanna wait in vain
No, I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna
I don't wanna wait in vain
No, I don't wanna (I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna
I don't wanna, I don't wanna wait in vain)
No I, no I (I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna
I don't wanna, I don't wanna wait in vain)
It's your love that I'm waiting on (I don't wanna)
It's me love that you're running from. (I don't wanna wait in vain)
It's your love that I'm waiting on (I don't wanna)
It's me love that you're running from. (I don't wanna wait in vain)
I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna
I don't wanna wait in vain

I don't wanna wait in vain for your love
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love
From the very first time I rest my eyes on you, girl
My heart says follow t'rough
But I know, now, that I'm way down on your line
But the waitin' feel is fine
So don't treat me like a puppet on a string
'Cause I know I have to do my thing
Don't talk to me as if you think I'm dumb
I wanna know when you're gonna come - soon
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love
'Cause if summer is here
I'm still waiting there
Winter is here
And I'm still waiting there

It's me love that you're running from

TRADUCTION EN FR
Un deux
Un deux trois
Je ne veux pas attendre en vain ton amour
Je ne veux pas attendre en vain ton amour
Dès la première fois que j'ai posé mes yeux sur toi, jeune fille
Mon cœur m’a dit : « fonce ! »
Mais  je sais maintenant que je dois patienter
Mais l’attente ne me gêne pas
Alors ne me traite pas comme une marionnette au bout d’un fil
Car je sais comment mener mon truc
Ne me parle pas comme si tu me prenais  pour un imbécile
Je veux savoir quand tu vas venir – tu vois
Je ne veux pas attendre en vain ton amour
Je ne veux pas attendre en vain ton amour
Je ne veux pas attendre en vain ton amour
Parce que si l'été est là, j'attendrai encore là
L'hiver est là et j'attendrai encore là
(..)
Comme je l'ai dit
Ça fait trois ans que je frappe à ta porte
Et je viens frapper encore
Ooh jeune fille ooh jeune fille, est-ce que c’est envisageable ?
Je veux savoir maintenant, pour que je frappe encore plus
Tu vois, dans la vie je sais qu'il y a beaucoup de tourment
Mais ton amour est mon apaisement
Des larmes me brûlent les yeux , des larmes me brûlent les yeux
Pendant que j'attends, pendant que j'attends mon tour
Tu vois, je ne veux pas attendre en vain ton amour
Je ne veux pas attendre en vain ton amour
Je ne veux pas attendre en vain ton amour
Je ne veux pas attendre en vain ton amour
Je ne veux pas attendre en vain ton amour, oh
Je ne veux pas, je ne veux pas, je ne veux pas, je ne veux pas
Je ne veux pas attendre en vain, non
Je ne veux pas, je ne veux pas, je ne veux pas, je ne veux pas
Je ne veux pas attendre en vain, non je
Je ne veux pas, je ne veux pas (non je) je ne veux pas, je ne veux pas
Je ne veux pas attendre en vain
Non, non, non, je, non je (je ne veux pas, je ne veux pas, je ne veux pas
Je ne veux pas, je ne veux pas attendre en vain)
C'est ton amour que je continue d’attendre (je ne veux pas, je ne veux pas
Je ne veux pas, je ne veux pas, je ne veux pas attendre en vain)
C'est mon amour que tu es en train de fuir
C'est ton amour que je continue d’attendre (je ne veux pas, je ne veux pas
Je ne veux pas, je ne veux pas, je ne veux pas attendre en vain)
C'est mon amour que tu es en train de fuir

It's me love that you're running from

@Tanya Wright haha, thank you, you are right, the lyrics in Google are without the word "placed", but now you just opened muy mind, that's the right word, "placed".

Thanks for your wishes, I wish the same for you 🙂

Tanya Wright

@Goremaggedon I just Google'd the lyrics, because I just posted this song on Facebook, that's what the lyrics said and it just made more sense to me that he said placed instead of blessed but some lyrics will say that, depending on where you read the lyrics... They can confuse the hell out of you! (LOL)! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! :)

Goremaggedon

@Tanya Wright ohhhhh, that have sense, sureeeeeee, hahaha, omgggg, you are totally right, placed placed placed, like "hey baby, you are so beautiful and I just placed my eyes on you", thaaank youuuu :D

Tanya Wright

@Goremaggedon Nope, I just listened to the song again, I have it on repeat LOL, he clearly says "PLACED" with his suave Jamaican accent, listen to it very carefully and you'll hear him say it... It sounds an awful like blessed but he's saying it with a Jamaican accent, PLACED, besides placed makes more sense than blessed...

Goremaggedon

@Tanya Wright exactly, hahaha, thank you.
