It’s Good to Wait

I watched all my friends throwing themselves at guys
They did it just to get a boyfriend so they weren’t alone
I didn’t do that, so I ended up left out, and lonely
But years later, at our high school reunion
Their love has either died, or only lasted on sex
And I, because I waited, arrive with the love of my life
