The Outsiders - Time Won't Let Me (1966)

For having such a short-lived existence (1965-1968), this group was able to put together four hit singles in 1966. They never toured outside of the United States, but within the US, they hit the road alongside Paul Revere and The Raiders, Chad and Jeremy, The McCoys, ? and The Mysterians, and others. Jimmy Fox, their drummer, would later go on to form James Gang, playing alongside Joe Walsh.

This song, their first and largest claim to fame, stayed on the charts for 15 weeks.

Lyrics:

I can't wait forever
Even though you want me to
I can't wait forever
To know if you'll be true

Time won't let me (oh no)
Time won't let me (oh no)
Time won't let me wait that long

Can't you see I've waited too long
To love you? To hold you in my arms?

Time won't let me (oh no)
Time won't let me (oh no)
Time won't let me

I can't wait forever
Even though you want me to
I can't wait forever
To know if you'll be true

Time won't let me (oh no)
Time won't let me (oh no)
Time won't let me wait that long

Hear me baby, waitin' that long
Take me back, I'm comin' back right now
Hear me baby sayin' “I'm comin' home”
“I'm comin' home,” oh hear me talkin', pretty baby
Don't you know I'm comin' back to you, oh!
Oh pretty baby, take me back, I'm comin' back
Open up your arms and take me back, a-here I come…
