Wait, I Wasn't Ready

Yeah, It's A Bad Habit

Wait, I Wasn't Ready

I have a bad habit of waiting,

choosing is too definite,

I'll just wait here, to see what happens

now my resolve's become too sensitive.

What if I choose the wrong thing?

What if it makes you mad?

What if I choose what's best for me,

and that choice, makes you feel sad?

What if my choice is indifferent,

could it pass as a decision made?

Or would you need something stronger?

What if my choice leaves you feeling dismayed?

My choices have led me to falter,

they have brought out the best and the worst.

They have shown me that I have a problem,

of putting everyone else's choice, first.

So, I wait to see if it works out,

bend and sway to make it easier for you.

One day, I hope to find waiting,

works out for my benefit too.
