One too many times
I fell over you
Once in a shadow
I finally grew
And once in a night
I dreamed you were there
I canceled my flight
From going nowhere

It's all I can do
To keep waiting for you
It's all I can do
It's all I can do

One too many times
I twisted the gate
When I was crazy
I thought you were great
I kept my renditions
Of you on the wall
Where holiday romance
Is nothing at all

It's all I can do
To keep waiting for you
It's all I can do
It's all I can do

You wait in the wing
Like a Saturday flirt
Protecting the judge
You don't want to get hurt
And once in a moment
It all comes to you
As soon as you get it
You want something new

It's all I can do
To keep waiting for you
It's all I can do
It's all I can do

It's all I can do
To keep waiting for you
It's all I can do
It's all I can do

It's all I can do
To keep waiting for you
It's all I can do
It's all I can do

It's all I can do
To keep waiting for you
It's all I can do
It's all I can do

I always liked that line
Junior High School
This is a blast from the past! I think it was 1977, I took a girlfriend to the Speakeasy Club in London, and lo The Cars did a surprise set.

R.I.P. Ben Orr.
Perfect bleed of synth and guitar.

One of their very finest and always welcome here. Thank you
Never having been a commercial radio listener, other than a brief spell with a FM Atlanta 99X-something in the 90's, I could very well not have heard this one since its record's release, whenever that was way back 70s when. It was a terrific reminder of why we fell instantly in love with The Cars at first note. 
Memory of standing in a record store in Eugene Oregon in the summer of 1978. This song comes on overhead and everything stops. Music sears memory.
Love, love, love this one
a deep track I had forgotten about... THX!
Benjamin Orr and Ric Ocasek certainly had a groovy sound going on in the 80s.  I have countless memories of good times rolling to their music
Pure, pitch perfect POP. 
(Happily) Surprised to hear this here!
No way! This is one of many enjoyable Cars tunes!
