Dont Wait For Me - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics
by Michael Nesmith
Don't wait for me, I'll be a long time coming,
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 have 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 have been and when I finally leave
That will show how much I care.
