"Waiting For You" as written by and Brenda Russell....
Everyday a shade of blue
You won't believe
What I'm going through
It just feels like I can't afford to let myself go
No oh no

Everyone is just the same
They touch me
But I can't say

There has been no one brighter than you
I can't deny these things that I do
Feels like the world's at stake 'cause
I have been waiting
I have been waiting for you

Heavenly that's what you are
You're burning me like a shining star
How am I supposed to be that king without you
Oh it's true yeah

Everyone is just the same
They love me
But I can't say

There has been no one brighter than you
I can't deny these things that I do
Feels like the world's at stake yeah
I have been waiting
I have been waiting for you

Yeah, yeah
There has been no one brighter than you
I can't deny these things that I do
Feels like the world's at stake 'cause
I have been waiting
I have been waiting for you

I have seen no light brighter than you
And I can't deny these things that I do
Feels like the world's at stake yeah
I have been waiting
I have been waiting for you, yeah for you

Everyday I sit down and I feel like I'm waiting
For you
I've been waiting for you
For you
I have been waiting
I have been waiting for you

    General Commenti love this song. number one played right now. i think it's hypothetical. he feels like he's waiting for the perfect woman, but hasn't found/met her yet. so he's just waiting for her to show up.

    i don't think he's apologizing for a dog though? that's a little farfetched

    haha. fetched. no pun intended

    General Commentthis song is a weird one. i HATE the start, nothing like Seal at all, (well, what I've heard of his) but the rest of it... is pretty good.

    meaning. i reckon it's someone apologizing to someone else they hurt because they realized it was wrong of them. possibly a dog, if the ba ba ba... is actually a typo and is really bow wow.

    hey, gotta cover all the possibilities.

    General CommentWhen his fourth album came out Seal did an interview for VH1 describing all the songs. When he got to this one he said that you could ask him what any other song meant but this one. Seal claimed that when the music played he sang the lyrics that we hear on this track with no thought to their meaning. Basically, it means whatever it means to you.
