The Waiter

Original lyrics for The Waiter written by Marcus Alexander

You’ve been looking my way, why don’t you come with me
But if you want what you see, I’m not the one you need
And you’ve been standing around, a lock without a key
Just stop your messin around, you’re not the first to bleed

You’ve been out of my reach, and now you’re in my way
The wine turns to love in the night, you’re staying at my place
And I can tell when I leave, you’d rather have me stay
But now for the rest of your life, I’ll let you have your space

You need somebody, who wouldn’t leave
Well I’m not a traitor
You need somebody, who isn’t me
But I’m not the waiter

I’ve been waiting for you, where did you spend your time?
I spent all the love that you need, but still you’re in my mind
I don’t follow the rules, but now I’m in your game
So when you lie to my face, I know you feel the same

You need somebody, who wouldn’t leave
Well I’m not a traitor
You need somebody, who isn’t me
But I’m not the waiter

You’ve been looking my way, and now you’ve seen me through
And I’ve been trying to stay the hell away from you
And you’re still standing around, without your little key
But now we’ve run out of time, why don’t you come with me
