Lyrics
You came 2 me
Said give you more time
Time 2 get yourself 2gether
Time 2 make up your mind
I want 4ever love
You want a one night fantasy
While I'm sittin' here waitin' on you
You know somebody somewhere's waitin' on me

Time waits 4 no one
Time don't wait 4 nobody, nobody
And time waits 4 no one
If you wait 2 long
You can turn around and I'll be gone, gone, gone

(Time, time, time)
I just can't sit around
Watchin' my life pass me by
So if U're ever gonna make a change
Better be right now, right now, right now!

I don't know if anybody ever told you, boy
But impatience is my middle name (My middle name)
So if my good, good? good lovin' means anything 2 you, babe
You better stop runnin' your game

Time waits 4 no one (No one)
Time don't wait 4 nobody, nobody
Time waits 4 no one (No one)
If you wait 2 long
You turn around and I'll be gone, gone, gone

You came 2 me
You said give you more time
But baby, baby, I could see through you
Even if I were deaf, dumb and blind

Time waits 4 no one (No one)
Time don't wait 4 nobody, nobody
(Time) Time waits 4 no one
So if you wait 2 long (2 long)
You turn around and I'll be gone, gone, gone

(Time, time, time) Waits 4 no one
Don't wait 4 no one
Nobody, nobody
No, nobody

Time waits 4 no one
Time don't wait 4 nobody, nobody
Time, time, time waits 4 no one
