I've always wanted to tell you,
what I feel like saying when you
Come by to greet me, I love your hair
and are you free at five o' clock tomorrow
But tomorrow never comes, I'm all alone
Standing in line, waiting for my time

The weather outside is beautiful
and I'd sure love to share it with the
Sunshine of your eyes, bright and illuminating
Up my summer skies, but tonight winter falls
A cold wispy chill, runs down my spine
While waiting for my time

Where can I find the courage
To defy the gravity of this
Crippling feeling I sink into the crowd
I think of one million reasons
Why you wouldn't look this way and why should you
I'm still waiting for my time

I can't express this feeling,
cause words tend to shrink things that seem
Timeless in my head, to bite-sized sayings I regret
Once they are said, so I put it off again
Say we're just friends, biding my time
While waiting for a sign

How can I fight this feeling
Towering over me as I sit here hesitating
Thinking of you, oh my knees shake and quiver
Like the blizzard shakes the snow, my hearts a drum
Thats beating for a

Time to live and a time to die
a time to laugh and a time to cry
is it worth putting off rejection
when I'm missing out on life?

So I'll fight this feeling, overcoming every
Circumstance in the way, cause with love baby
I don't need a rhyme or reason to make you look this way
I'll come to you, Time's been wasting long enough
