lyrics

WAITING
Darden Smith / Terry Radigan / Katrina Dinan / Lisa Geartz / Cathy Jimenez / Daniela Pina / Krista Spohr / Kelly Barone Strade / Evelyn Valentino / Maria Vincent / Susie Washock

Waiting for the phone to ring
For a letter from the field
For him to fall asleep and stay asleep
Waiting the wounds to heal
Waiting for him not to swerve around a pothole
Or jump at the 4th of July
Waiting for him not to have his back to the wall
And the terror in his eyes

We are waiting, waiting, waiting
We are waiting, waiting, waiting

Waiting to be a family
9 to 5 holidays and weekends
Waiting for him to just open up
And be my best friend
Waiting to stop walking on eggshells
And finally be set free
Waiting for it to be my turn
Let it be just about me

We are waiting, waiting, waiting
We are waiting, waiting, waiting

We are waiting, waiting, waiting
We are waiting, waiting, waiting

I waited to feel his touch at night
Laying there all alone
Some days I’m still waiting
For him to come back home

I’m watching the days get shorter
And the leaves are falling down
If we can make through the winter
The spring will come around
Let’s all go and look at we’re creating
We’re worth the…

We are waiting, waiting, waiting
We are waiting, waiting, waiting

Worth the waiting
Worth the waiting
