lyrics

I know you want me to
come knocking on your door
I know you want me to stay
and never run around no more
but you’re gonna have to wait
baby, youre gonna have to wait

cuz there’s a sky outside just full of stars
I’ve still got some wishes I’ve been counting on
and I still got some big mistakes
that I wanna make
so you’re gonna have to wait

Every time I leave your step
You fuss and you whine
and every time I get ahead
you tell me to get behind
but I don’t like to wait
baby, I’m not gonna wait

cuz there’s a world outside
and it’s looking for me
and I know it has lots of things it wants me to see
and I know you want me to do
just what you say
but your gonna have to wait

Oh, baby oh no baby please don’t cry
oh honey you won’t have to hear me say goodbye
oh darling we don’t have to say good bye
cuz I’m leaving in the middle of the night

I’m running away underneath a big white moon
He’s laughing, baby
Ya, he’s laughing too
He’s shining through the deep dark trees and lighting me a way
and you’re gonna have to wait

I’m running away underneath a big white moon
He’s laughing, baby Ya, he’s laughing too
He’s shining through the deep dark trees and lighting me a way
and you’re gonna have to wait

Jenna Ellefson Portland, Oregon

Jenna grew up in lush Oregon, beside waterfalls, amid tall trees and foxgloves. One flowery spring, on a whim, she bought a little banjo...and suddenly all the poems she had been scribbling, and all the melodies she had been humming, and all the beautiful places she had seen spilled out over its little plucky strings and finally...she had songs to sing. ... more
