"I'll Wait" as written by and Edward/van Halen Van Halen....
You've got me captured I'm under your spell
I guess I'll never learn
I have your picture yes I know it well
Another page is turned
Are you for real, it's so hard to tell
From just a magazine
Yeah, you just smile and the picture sells
Look what that does to me

I'll wait till your love comes down
I'm coming straight for your heart
No way you can stop me now
As fine as you are

I wrote a letter and told her these words
That meant a lot to me
I never sent it, she wouldn't have heard
Her eyes don't follow me
And while she watches I can never be free
Such good photography

I'll wait till your love comes down
I'm coming straight for your heart
No way you can stop me now
As fine as you are

You can't imagine what your image means
The pages come alive
Your magic greets everyone who reads
Heartbreak in overdrive
Are you for real, it's so hard to tell
From just a magazine
Yeah, you just smile and the picture sells
Look what that does to me

I'll wait till your love comes down
I'm coming straight for your heart
No way you can stop me now
As fine as you are

I'll wait till your love comes down
I'm coming straight for your heart
No way you can stop me now
As fine as you are

    General CommentI think this is about a guy who is captivated by a picture of a girl he sees in a magazine.

    General Commentwhere Dave was staying, in New York City, there was a HUGE Guess ad right outside the window of his apartment. everytime he looked out the window all you could see was this 20 feet tall poster of a girl in men's underwear....so he wrote a song about it. 'I'll wait til your love comes down...' kinda like when they take the poster down. pretty corny but hey, its Dave!

    General CommentIndeed, Alex does a real kickass job on this song. This is one of my favorite songs off of 1984, but then, the whole album is amazing.

    General CommentThis song is one of the all-time greats. It fits in an employment brochure, a political campiagn ad(if the daughter is hot-family photos), and yes church. Yes we all have struggled with our faith in God. It's like resetting the burner switch on an oil furnace-just hit the red one.
