"wait for you" as written by and Timothy Z./hills Mosley....
I know you're trying to get around me, baby
I know you've got me in your heart, baby
I know that you could love me
If you only had a guarantee
When I look at your face, it's so empty
I know I could fill you with love, baby
Your soul is dying for me
Can't deny our energy

And you're far; I'm near, you're there
I'm here; you're hurting for me
I can see it in your eyes
Some of the hardest things
Are easy to achieve with patience

I'll wait for you until the heavens fall
I'll wait for you until the end of the world
I'll wait for you until I no longer breathe
I know that it's not impossible
I'll wait for you until you finish your fight
I'll wait for you until the timing is right
I'll wait for you until you knock on my door
'Cause right now it's feeling just like a movie, yeah, yeah
Just like a movie, yeah, yeah

I know that this is hard for you
Want you to know that I'm feeling it too
It's taken some time but now I see everything
It's so clear to me
I can't give up your love without dying, baby
I'll wait until the sea is dry, baby
How do we know what love is
Until it is free?

And you're far; I'm near, you're there
I'm here; you're hurting for me
I can see it in your eyes
Some of the hardest things
Are easy to achieve with patience

I'll wait for you until the heavens fall
I'll wait for you until the end of the world
I'll wait for you until I no longer breathe
I know that it's not impossible
I'll wait for you until you finish your fight
I'll wait for you until the timing is right
I'll wait for you until you knock on my door
'Cause right now it's feeling just like a movie, yeah, yeah
Just like a movie, yeah, yeah

You don't gotta do anything that you can't do
You don't gotta do anything in a hurry
You don't gotta do anything that you can't do
I know you're there; you got me
You don't gotta do anything that you can't do
You don't gotta do anything in a hurry
You don't gotta do anything, so don't worry
I trust you, and I know you're there

Ah, just like a movie
Ah, just like a movie
Ah, just like a movie
Ah, just like a movie

I'll wait for you until the heavens fall
I'll wait for you until the end of the world
I'll wait for you until I no longer breathe
I know that it's not impossible
I'll wait for you until you finish your fight
I'll wait for you until the timing is right
I'll wait for you until you knock on my door
'Cause right now it's feeling just like a movie, yeah, yeah
Just like a movie, yeah, yeah

    General CommentI'm not a "clubbin" sort of guy, but if songs like this were on constant rotation, I might consider going. The beat is hot, Nelly's vocals are sexier as ever and that Eastern vibe is absolutely perfect.

    I seriouslly can't stop listening to this album.

    General CommentI love the album version of this song but recently I came across a YouTube video of Nelly performing a slowed down version of this song on her european tour. It's AMAZING! I like it better. You should all check it out.
