Songs where the singer says they won't wait forever to be loved?

I discovered a fairly recent song last week called “Oh My Love” by Sophia.
the lyrics go like this:

'Cause I been waiting
For such a long time
Your love is still
Fresh in my mind
And oh my love though I wait
Can’t you see
I can’t wait forever for you
to say you love me

I like the song quite a bit, and part of that is because it reminds me of another song I’ve liked much longer “Only For So Long” by Dishwalla.

I don’t need a clock to know it’s wasted time
What’s your mood ring doing now?
Tell me if you want me near
And I’ll play along
Tell me what you love to fear
And I’ll play along
But only for so long

There have to be more songs about someone realizing that they should soon give up on someone. Can anyone recommend some?

“Waiting in Vain” by Bob Marley
“Give Me One Reason” by Tracy Chapman


Róisín Murphy and Mark Brydon of the trip hop duo Moloko from Sheffield.
They have since broken up musically and as Lovers. Their songs as Moloko are love letters to one another, lyrically and musically. Her new album is a subtle fuck you, I’m the voice of this music that you showed me (I still love you, though.) It’s bitter and pointed, scorned and loving, soulful and real. Pretty sad actually. I think it is one of the more interesting discographies out there. Muses.

a good song to bear point…

The Time is Now

Who are “they”?

Come Around by The Muttonbirds.

I cannot remember the last time I saw you smile,
and I won’t wait forever, but I’ll wait awhile.

Time Won’t Let Me by The Outsiders

Tired of Waiting by The Kinks

Got To Choose by KISS

That Dawson Creek song-- I Don’t Want To Wait by Paula Cole. This song also has the worst line in the history of song:

Open up your morning light
and say a little prayer for I.

Last Song (I’ll Ever Write For You), Edward Bear

The Ghost of a Smile by The Pogues includes these lines:

Dont wait too long
Dont wait too long
Dont wait too long
Or Ill be gone

There’s also (video link) Don’t Make Me Wait by Locksley.

And the identically-titled Don’t Make Me Wait by This World Fair.

“How Soon Is Now” by the Smiths

When you say it’s gonna happen “now”
well, when exactly do you mean?
see I’ve already waited too long
and all my hope is gone

Linda Ronstadt When will I be loved?
