"Right Here Waiting" as written by and Richard Marx....
Oceans apart day after day
And I slowly go insane
I hear your voice on the line
But it doesn't stop the pain

If I see you next to never
How can we say forever

Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes
Or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you

I took for granted, all the times
That I thought would last somehow
I hear the laughter, I taste the tears
But I can't get near you now

Oh, can't you see it baby
You've got me going crazy

Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes
Or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you

I wonder how we can survive
This romance
But in the end if I'm with you
I'll take the chance

Oh, can't you see it baby
You've got me going crazy

Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes
Or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you
Waiting for you

    General CommentYou are all totally missing the point of the song. It's about how the guy and he died and he's sitting in heaven waiting for her.

    General CommentWhen I listen to this song, one of my absolute favourites of all-time, the meaning is quite simple.

    To me, it specifies that no matter where a person you love goes in life, no matter how often you talk to them - whether it's all the time or as little as possible for whatever reason - it signifies that no matter what the circumstances are, that you're always going to be waiting for that person that you believe will change your life.

    The song epitomises what it means to go to whatever lengths you have to, just to have that one person you truly love come to you and that you'll wait around forever.

    It's a fantastic song, and one I'm sure we can all relate to.

    General CommentThis is a song that reminds me of long distance relationships. Hopefully for someone out there, they can work out. When I first heard this song I had met a guy on holiday living in the South of England, where I live in the North. It can break your heart to be apart for so long, but all it takes is the one you love to know that they're waiting for you.

    General CommentI myself am going through this. I have a gurl who had to go to anther state (normally i would dump the girl),but something made me feel as though i had to wait for her.She is now miles apart from me,but i told her i would give her all the freedom she needed but i would wait for her. i've kept true to my promise for 3 months and this song is what i sing to her over the phone.
