Do I Wait
by Ryan Adams

Do I want to say the things I say
When I know that they are wrong
Do I wait here forever for you, would you ask me to?
I been waiting here, all night

If your not going to show
Were not gonna fight
I could stay, forever, if I tried
Surrounded by things,
Like a shadow in the light

Do I try and stay still for you
And the clowns who park here
Fill the emptiness of the room
Do you watch me from the corner of your eye
Do we say goodbye

I waited in the wings
For you to appear
But your never coming back
Your never gonna feel
Like we did, I waited all night
I tried to let you go
Like a shadow in the light

The light, do I wait
Do I wait for you
Do I wait
Do I wait for you

Do I wait here forever for you
Did you ask me to?

Tear jerker…It always gets me every time. This is like The Notebook of songs. 

Gabriel Ross-Nash

My discovery of Ryan Adams began in 2004...and it never ended.

Timothy Christopher

this song will always remind me of Pain and loss that I NEVER wanna experience again.. That's the benefit I've gotten personally from listening to all his music.. Its helped me learn how to live and love simultaneously.. Ash, Im sorry. and i'll never forget you

Eugene Wanderer

Ryan adams is most definitly one of the most talented song writers the industry has ever seen. for his age he shows a depth that far surpasses that of artist twice his age.

Duane Westcot

I don't think I know a sadder song. If you really think through his words better make sure you're stocked up on the zack. But strangely, they are therapeutic. Years from now they will remind me a difficult time and woman, and if im lucky feelings I don't wish to completely forget.

What a beautiful soul to sing music like this .This song and all his music belong in a museum,youre right.His music is so heartbreakingly beautiful and touching.IBreaks my heart every time and thats ok because his music also heals it .I feel his pain and I have alot of memories from his music.God gave him a beautiful gift.Sing to me beautiful music man I just love the way you melt my heart.💖


Well written, and a heartfelt lash of emotion in the metal-tinged solo.

Coral Jolicoeur

Stayed up all night waiting for him to call or show up... wondering if I should go or keep standing here? Ryan Adams put how I feel to music. Listening to it on repeat and asking the question again and again.


I get moved every time...
