Song of the Day: Banks - Waiting Game

This song is both scorchingly hot and hauntingly sad at the same time.  So much love and intensity, but also fear and doubt.  So many "what-if's".

What if you meet someone who amazes you, but the timing or circumstances are not right?

What if you're afraid you can only go downhill from where you're at?

What if you find that one-in-a-million person, and you screw it up?

What do you do, so you wait until you're certain?  Will you ever be?

Will you get a second chance?

I wish I was in love but I don't wanna cause any pain
And if I'm feeling like I'm evil, we've got nothing to gain
What if I never even see you cuz we're both on a stage
Don't tell me listen to your song because it isn't the same
I don't wanna say your love is a waiting game
What if the way we started made it something cursed from the startWhat if it only gets colder
Would you still wrap me up and tell me that you think this was smart
Cuz lately I've been scared of even thinking 'bout where we are

I think, in the end, that waiting will drive you crazy.  But maybe acting prematurely is a huge mistake.  Such is life.  I don't have the answers.

"Waiting Game"

I'm thinking it over
The way you make me feel all sexy but it's causing me shame
I wanna lean on your shoulder
I wish I was in love but I don't wanna cause any pain
And if I'm feeling like I'm evil, we've got nothing to gain

[Chorus:]
What if I never even see you cuz we're both on a stage
Don't tell me listen to your song because it isn't the same
I don't wanna say your love is a waiting game

[Verse 2:]
Baby I'm thinking it over
What if the way we started made it something cursed from the start
What if it only gets colder
Would you still wrap me up and tell me that you think this was smart
Cuz lately I've been scared of even thinking 'bout where we are
