As a child he sees the mountain
and hopes that someday he will climb
As the same she sees the dancer
and trusts in the dreams she will find
As we reach into tomorrow
we all need to find something new
Could it be I've found the answer
'cause I know now that I'm ready
What I want is you

Chorus
Don't keep me waiting, hanging on the line
Keep me waiting. Oh yeah

And I know what you are thinking
If only I could take the time to choose
You'd better get it right, cause it's time to see the light
And the minutes keep on passing, Hey you don't want to lose

Chorus
Don't keep me waiting, hanging on the line
Keep me waiting, don't waste my precious time
Don't keep me waiting, the devil needs his due
Keep me waiting. Oh no, no no no

And all the hopes and dreams of the past
That are haunting my heart, held in my hand
And all lives keep on passing
Over and over and over again

Ain't no matter now what you say, gonna keep on up anyway
keep me waiting, hanging on the line
Keep me waiting, don't waste my precious time
Don't keep me waiting, the devil needs his due
Keep me waiting. Oh no, no no

    General CommentWow! I am the first person to comment on this band, let alone this song! Now, my uncle plays bass in this band so if anybody (That is assuming that somebody will eventually post here; not a given) disses his playing style you'll have to answer to me! Now, this is the best song off the Heaven and Earth self-titled album. I couldn't really get into the album too much because I'm, well, I'm into more alternative music, but I appreciate the bluesy songs and Stuart Smith's (As well as the many guest stars; Kelly Hansen sings this song) playing style. This is without a doubt the catchiest song on the album, and is the one song on the album that I listen to regulary. The lyrics (Speaking about the whole album) may not have much depth, but are inspired. This, in my opinion, is a classic rock revivalist album, and it functions as that well.

    I think this about one wanting to accomplish something, like a goal that one has, but for some reason, it's pushed back, and the narrator seems bent on accomplishing it now (That's where the "don't keep me waiting" line comes from). Nice song to put on when you are in a traffic jam or waiting in a long line, the lyrics fit the situation perfectly, lol.
