I'm waiting to know you, far away
Send up a balloon, says: "write to me soon,"
I'm waiting to know you, far away
Set up at the pier, wait 'til you get here

And when I'm about to give up hope, but nope
With my telescope
I'm standing guard the navy yard
To see:
Could there one for me be?
Baby, oh no, where did you go?

I'm waiting to know you, far away
Flashlight the cave, listen short-wave
I'm waiting to know you, far away
Dredge up the lake, all the trees shake

And when I'm about to give up hope, but nope
With my telescope
I'm standing guard the navy yard
To see:
Could there one for me be?
Baby, oh no, where did you go?

I'm waiting to know you, far away
Send up a balloon, says: "write to me soon,"
I'm waiting to know you, far away
Flashlight the cave, listen short-wave

And when I'm about to give up hope, but nope
With my telescope
I'm standing guard the navy yard
To see:
Could there one for me be?
Baby, oh no, where did you go?

Baby, oh no, where did you go?

    General Commentthis is wonderful! it always cheers me up and is so upbeat. this could be about someone singing to that special person that they're waiting to love. this girl could be looking for someone specific or just in general too, in the line "could there one for me be?" this makes it true, but then for the rest of the song she seems to be speaking to one person so i'm really not sure. or maybe her man is in the navy, as she makes reference to that alot (unless it's just a metaphor). she used to know him and love him but he's been gone for so long that he is lost in her mind; maybe even gone for real. or, it's a kind of love from afar where she sees a guy and is just waiting for him to notice her..anyways whatever it could be i just love the feeling it is so happy! eleanor's voice is awesome.

    General Commenti think the meaning behind this song is pretty clear in the lyrics. it is an otherwise beautiful song, very feelgood and creative.
