Don't Wait Too Long
Madeleine Peyroux Lyrics


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 break 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 waste another day
Maybe you got to lose it all
Before you find your way

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

Ever since I started hearing Madeleine Peyroux, I thought this song was original

Vanessa van Hest

+Lenka Jiraskova You're welcome, and I totally agree with you.

erleboswell

Wow, I love her singing. Is it me, or is she reminiscent of the great Billy Holiday?

Adrian

Wholeheartedly

Kimberly Fraizer

I agree!

Lisa Violet

I just looked up this song after hearing it in the film "Rewrite", expecting to see it was a Billie Holiday song....Agreed, that Madeleine Peyroux is reminiscent of Billie Holiday.

claude domont

Totally agree !

Forrest Chumley

Sounds just like the great Madeleine P. Can't wait to hear her live in concert again. Hope it won't take too long.

I was playing a gig two days ago when the technician played this during setting up. The guitar/bass/drum groove hit me like lightning. I was getting goosebumps and as soon as I got home, I found it on You Tube. It has been on repeat ever since. Two days later and it's still making me swing through my apartment. The lyrics hit home, too. Sigh. I'm in love.
