Waiting in Vain  Annie Lennox

I think she actually does her version in the key of "D" but this is how I transposed it.
(If you capo the 2nd fret its sorta the same).
[G]From the very first time I [C]rest my eyes on you, boy
[G]My heart said "follow [C]through"
[G]But I know now that I'm [C]way down your line
[G]But the waiting feel is [C]fine
[G]See don't treat me like a [C]puppet on a string
[G]'Cause I know how do my [C]thing
[G]Don't talk to me as [C]if you think I'm dumb
[G]I wanna know when you're gonna [C]come- see
[G]I don't wanna wait in [C]vain for your love (repeat 3 times)
'[Dsus2]Cause summer is here [Am7]and I'm still waiting there
W[Dsus2]inter is here and I'm[Am7] still waiting- there[G]
[G]Its been three years since I'm [C]knocking on your door
[G]And I still could knock some [C]more
[G]Oooh boy, oooh boy
[C]Is it crazy, look I wanna know [G]now- for I to knock some [C]more
You see,[G] in life I [C]know there is lots of grief
[G]But your love is my [C]relief
[G]Tears in my eyes burn, [C]tears in my eyes burn
While I'm [G]waiting, while I'm waiting for my [C]turn- to see
[G]I don't wanna wait in [C]vain for your love (repeat 3 times)
(Repeat Bridge)
I don't wanna
I don't wanna
I don't wanna
I don't wanna
I don't wanna wait in vain (fade out)
