Don't Make Me Wait Too Long

This song is by Roberta Flack and appears on the album Roberta Flack Featuring Donny Hathaway (1980).

I never mind waiting, ooh, ooh,

First a glance, then a smile, warmer than all of the
Heavens;
Whispering to me your name, and asking of me the
Same.
First a song, then a dance, that could have lasted
Forever,
But time said we had to part, not caring if it broke
Our hearts.
You said, "Hope we meet again."
I said, "Yes, just tell me when."
Please don't make me wait too long.
Don't make me wait too long.

First a note, then a call, with such tender
Conversation;
I knew all right it would be, if you came to visit me
First a kiss, then we were gone, to love's magic land
Together,
But morning said you must go, not caring if it hurt us
So.
I ask you, "Will we again?"
You said, "Yes, just tell me when."
Please don't make me wait too long.
Don't make me wait too long.
Don't make me wait too long.

First you're here, then you're gone,
It's that same old heartbreak story;
Thought that you'd be in my life
For more than just one night.
But you say you got to leave,
It destroys me, boy, it hurts me;
Tell me what did I do wrong
For you to leave me all alone?
I don't care how long you'll be,
'Cause I will wait patiently,
But please, don't make me wait too long.
Don't make me wait too long.
Don't make me wait too long.I never mind waiting, ooh, ooh,

First a glance, then a smile, warmer than all of the
Heavens;
Whispering to me your name, and asking of me the
Same.
