Shoelaces untied
You can dry your eye
Perfect shadows align behind us
And this is the day I make you mine

The way your hair lies
Sometimes unrecognized
All the way from these today, on a train
Nothing to say, but there's still time

You are the one
I've been waiting for today
And here comes the sun,
That's been baiting morn' today

Lately I've lost my tongue
Today you found my song
Unknown our love has grown
And I thank God you came along

You are the one
I've been waiting for today
And here comes the sun,
That's been baiting morn' today

You looked right through me,
There was no one else
I sat beside you and became myself today
Today

You are the one
I've been waiting for today
And here comes the sun,
It's been baiting morn' today

    Shoelaces untied, you can dry your eye,
    Perfect shadows lie behind us,
    And this is the day I make you mine.
    The way your hair lies,
    Sometimes unrecognized,

    All the way from Nice today on a train.
    Nothing to say but there’s still time.

    You are the one
    I’ve been waiting for today.
    Here comes the sun
    It’s been baiting on today.

    Lately I’ve lost my tongue,
    Today you found my song.

    unknown our love has grown
    I thank God you came along.

    You are the one I've been waiting for today
    Here comes the sun
    It's been baiting morn today

    You looked right through me there’s no one else
    I sat beside you and became myself today.
    Today.

    You are the one I’ve been waiting for today.
    Here comes the sun
    It’s been beating on today

    General Comment:i was thinking that this would be a good song to walk down the isle too. do a rekon that would work? lines like
    "Nothing to say there’s still time.
    You are the one
    I’ve been waiting for today.
    Here comes the sun
    It’s been beating on today."

    makes me think he's singing about the day he's getting married. obviously seeing as that person saw him interviewed it doesnt actuly mean that.

    but it could eh?

    General Comment:The offical site says it's "baiting 'morn", but if you where thinking of it as a wedding day (which i really like!) "It's been betted on today" or "i've been betting on today" would make sense, as in he was taking the risk of a rainy day...anyway, I love this song!

    General Comment:Just to confirm what MissJenna said, I was lucky enough to see Joshua live last month and he confirmed that he wrote the song when he was 16 on a train from Nice, hence the lyric about being the place. He intended to give her the lyrics but didn't, so put music to them when he was older.

    Have a look at the live version here, which features that story:
