"I'm Still Waiting" as written by and Deke Richards....
I remember when
I was five and you were ten, boy
You knew that I was shy
So you teased and made me cry
But I loved you

Then one day you came
You told me you were leaving
You gave your folks the blame
And made me cry again
When you said

Little girl
Please don't wait for me
Wait patiently for love
Someday it will surely come
Ooh, little girl
Please don't wait for me
Wait patiently for love
Someday it will surely come
And I'm still waiting

Ooh, I'm waiting
Ooh, still waiting
I'm just a fool
Ooh, I'm a fool
(I'm just a fool to keep waiting)
To keep waiting
(I'm just a fool)
For you
(I'm just a fool)
Ooh, I'm waiting
(I'm just a fool)
I'm still waiting
(I'm just a fool to keep waiting)
For love
(I'm just a fool)
For you
(I'm just a fool)

Then someone finally came
He told me that he loved me
I put him off with lies
He could see I had no eyes
So he left me once again alone
Like a child without her playmate
I had to face the truth
I was still in love with you
But you said:

Little girl
Please don't wait for me
Wait patiently for love
Someday it will surely come
Ooh, little girl
Please don't wait for me
Wait patiently for love
Someday it will surely come
And I'm still waiting

Love has never shown his face
Since the day you walked out that door
You filled my life with empty space
Come back
Can't you see it's you I'm waiting for

(I'm just a fool)
Don't you know I'm waiting
(I'm just a fool to keep waiting)
I'm waiting for love
For you, I miss you
(I'm just a fool to keep waiting)
I'm waiting
(I'm just a fool)
Come on back, boy
(I'm just a fool)
Come back, come back, come back, boy
(I'm just a fool to keep waiting)
I need you
(I'm just a fool)
And I want you
(I'm just a fool)
That's what my friends say
(I'm just a fool)
I'm a fool
(I'm just a fool to keep waiting)

    General CommentI remember when
    I was five and you were ten, boy
    You knew that I was shy
    So you teased and made me cry
    But I loved you
    -----> She's saying she remembers when they were young, referring to her child-hood sweet heart. But through all the teasing he gave her, she still loved him.

    Then one day you came
    You told me you were leaving
    You gave your folks the blame
    And made me cry again
    When you said
    ------> One day he came and told her he had to leave, that him and his parents were leaving the area. And this got her upset.

    Little girl
    Please don't wait for me
    Wait patiently for love
    Someday will surely come
    Ooh, little girl
    Please don't wait for me
    Wait patiently for love
    Someday will surely come
    And I'm still waiting
    ------> Then he told her don't wait for me, move on with your life one day you will find love. But she's saying after all this time she's still waiting for someone, but no-body compares to him, her first love.

    I'm waiting
    Ooh, still waiting
    I'm just a fool
    Ooh, I'm a fool
    To keep waiting
    She's saying she's still waiting for him, and she's a fool to do so, but she still carries on waiting.

    Then someone finally came
    He told me that he loved me
    I put him off with lies
    He could see I had no eyes
    So he left me once again alone
    Like a child without her playmate
    I had to face the truth
    I was still in love with you
    But you said:
    ------ > Then she finally met someone else, even though she always thought of her first love I don't what the line she has no eyes means.. but eventually the relationship broke up, but shes saying once again she feels alone without her child hood sweet heart, an she needs to face the truth she still is in love with her first love.

    Little girl
    Please don't wait for me
    Wait patiently for love
    Someday will surely come
    Ooh, little girl
    Please don't wait for me
    Wait patiently for love
    Someday will surely come
    And I'm still waiting ----- > But then she's repeating to herself what her first love told her, to try to force her-self to move on from her first love.

    Love has never shown his face
    Since the day you walked out that door
    You filled my life with empty space
    Come back
    Can't you see it's you I'm waiting for
    -----> This is a good bit, where she realizes now she's grown up, she's never seen him, and that her finding love is doomed until she is back with her first love. Now she's realizing her love for him will never fade, and she's saying come back, I can't take anymore I still love you.

    Don't you know I'm waiting
    I'm waiting for love
    For you, I miss you
    I'm waiting
    Come on back, boy
    I need you
    I want you
    That's what my friends says
    I'm a fool.
    But I'm still waiting.
    ----- > Shes saying shes still waiting for him shes desperately asking for her first love to come back she wants to hold him and be with him again. She's saying I need you, I want you. my friends say I'm a fool but I don't care, I need you.

    General CommentWell, you are clever ( ha ha) of course that's what it means. A flipping toddler could come up with that its so obvious but I'm laughing hardest because you don't understand the line " he could see I had no eyes" HA HA HA HA HA .... guessing you're too BLIND to see it
