Can't Wait Around Here Anymore

Time is runnin’ out. Lord, the hour’s gettin’ late
I’d like to stay but I just can’t wait.
There’s somethin’ callin’ me, I’ve heard that call before
But I can’t wait around here anymore

Sorry, baby, for the time you may have lost
But all the hands are played and all the dice have all been tossed
There is no point now in you getting’ sore
But I can’t wait around here anymore

Told you once and I’ve told you twice
Better listen to some sound advice
Find someone better, now, to mind your store
But I can’t wait around here anymore

Don’t you go callin’ me your fair weather friend
Storm’s a-waitin’ for you, baby, ‘round the bend
No point now in you pacin’ on the floor
‘Cause I can’t wait around here anymore

Time is runnin’ out. Lord, the hour’s getting’ late
I’d like to stay but I just can’t wait.
There’s somethin’ callin’ me, I’ve heard that call before
But I can’t wait around here anymore
