"Wait for you" as written by and Eriksen/hermansen/jackson....
I never felt nothing in the world like this before
Now I'm missing you, and I'm wishing you would come back through my door
Oh, why did you have to go?
You could have let me know
So now I'm all alone

Girl, you could have stayed but you wouldn't give me a chance
With you not around, it's a little bit more than I can stand
Oh, and all my tears, they
Keep runnin' down my face
Why did you turn away?

So why does your pride make you run and hide?
Are you that afraid of me?
But I know it's a lie what you keep inside
This is not how you want it to be

So, baby, I will wait for you
'Cause I don't know what else I can do
Don't tell me I ran out of time
If it takes the rest of my life
Baby, I will wait for you
If you think I'm fine it just ain't true
I really need you in my life
No matter what I have to do
I'll wait for you

Been a long time since you called me
(How could you forget about me?)
You gotta be feeling crazy
How can you walk away
(When) everything stays the same?
I just can't do it, baby

What will it take to make you come back?
Girl, I told you what it is, and it just ain't like that
Why can't you look at me?
You're still in love with me
Don't leave me crying

Baby, why can't we just, just start over again
Get it back to the way it was?
If you give me a chance, I can love you right
But you're telling me it won't be enough

So, baby, I will wait for you
'Cause I don't know what else I can do
Don't tell me I ran out of time
If it takes the rest of my life
Baby, I will wait for you
If you think I'm fine it just ain't true
I really need you in my life
No matter what I have to do
I'll wait for you

So why does your pride make you run and hide?
Are you that afraid of me?
But I know it's a lie what you're keeping inside
That is not how you want it to be

Baby, I will wait for you
Oh
Baby, I will wait for you
If it's the last thing I do

Baby, I will wait for you
'Cause I don't know what else I can do
Don't tell me I ran out of time
If it takes the rest of my life
Baby, I will wait for you
If you think I find it just ain't true
I really need you in my life
No matter what I have to do
I'll wait for you

I'll be waiting

    General CommentO.K.,
    First of all, in the 2nd verse it's


    been along time since you called me
    (did you forget about me)
    You got me feeling crazy
    How can you walk away
    Everything stays the same
    I just can't do it baby

    Got that xthatxkiddx, next time check your source or something. gosh, i an so tired of having to clean up after you people.

    But, the song is most likely about a guy who is having a hard time dealing with this semi recent break up and he wants her back. And now he's on the verge of freaking out(if not already). yeah, it's kind of a plead to get her back.

    And, it can also go like a girl wanting a guy back.
    Or, i guess the whole bi- thing is always there but most likely Elliott isn't gay soooo i'm gonna go wth a no on that.

    Hope it helps any strange person who can't decode lyrics themselves.

    P.S. I am only here to look up lyrics and criticize people. So in case anyone cares i'm not one of thoes strange people who can't decode lyrics themselves.

    General Comment"Baby I will wait for you
    If you think I find it just ain’t true
    I really need you in my life"

    I think the middle line there is supposed to be: "If you think I'm fine, it just ain't true"

    That makes a lot more sense to me. I think this is about two people who are meant for each other. The girl is scared though. Maybe things are moving too fast, or she has some issues that she can't get over in order to be with him. He wants to give her all the time she needs to get over these "issues". She really loves him, but she can't let herself be completely vulnerable to him and put herself out there just yet. Maybe she has had bad experiences in the past. He loves her so much and he is giving her time because there isn't anyone else that he would rather be with.

    General CommentThis song completely embodies what me and this guy are going through right now. He told me he liked me and wanted to be with me, yet hooked up with other girls behind my back. When he finally told me, it broke my heart because it really really hurt me, how he tossed around the words.
    That night he told me, we had a huge fight, and ever since then, he keeps telling me he hasn't met someone so right, so perfect and that he wants to be with me.

    He tells me he'll wait and wait till I recover and trust him again and come back to him, but I don't know if I ever can because I have too much pride and he was such an asshole to me. It would make me feel inferior than I am to go back to him.

    Plus, he's in LA, and I'm about 5-6 hours away. I will be at San Diego next year though. I chose UCSD over UCLA. and he still wants to make it work.

    Song MeaningIt's relatively simple yet heartbreaking. This song is talking about a guy who is head over heels in love with a girl who he thinks the world of. He needs her in his life and no matter what it takes, he wants to be with her and it's driving him crazy. He's in agony and he's wondering what it will take to have her. He's saying all these things out of desperation and he's asking for a chance to love her the way she deserves to be loved. He's saying that when it comes to time, he has the rest of his life to love her and doesn't believe her when she tells him the time's gone and the pride that she has blinds her from the truth. He legitimately wants to believe that it's destiny that she and him will be together in the end. This song is relatable to pretty much anyone and to be honest, you'd have to be heartless not to understand a person who's in pain this way.

    General CommentLol, you guys are right the beginning does sound like "Never Had a Dream Come True" also the chorus sounds like it a little.
    I really like this song I think it's about two people who like each other but won't get together. It's really sad how they both could be happy but instead one is left lonely and waiting while the other is too haughty to get back together. In this scenario nobody wins.
