"Love Is Waiting" as written by and Brooke Fraser....
In the autumn on the ground, between the traffic and the traffic and the ordinary sounds
I am thinking signs and seasons while a north wind blows through
i watch as lovers pass me by
Walking stories, who's and how's and why's
Musing lazily on love
Pondering you
I'll give it time, give it space and be still for a spell
When it's time to walk that way we wanna walk it well

[Chorus]
I'll be waiting for you baby
I'll be holding back the darkest night
Love is waiting 'til we're ready, 'til it's right
Love is waiting

It's my caution not the cold
there's no other hand that i would rather hold
the climate changes, I'm singing for the strangers about you
don't keep time, slow the pace
Honey hold on if you can
the bets are getting surer now that you're my man

[Chorus]

I could right a million songs about the way you say my name
I could live a lifetime with you and then do it all again
and like I can't force the sun to rise or hasten summer's start,
neither should I rush my way into your heart

    General Commentthis song is perfect for me! i have been looking for a song lilke this for a while now....
    i belive its about surrendering you life to GOD and having him set up ur life.
    i have been in this delema for a while. i was not sure wat love is or should be or if i am allowed to even fall in love. But truly GOD has everything under control. He knows who is right for you and who your goning to fall in love with. Everything is a matter of time and with GOD all things are possible. i wanted to be like every one and fall in love but my time has not come. this is true for a lot of people.
    i love the part..." and like I can't force the sun to rise or hasten summer's start,neither should I rush my way into your heart"
    we should just give love time and like the song says "love is waiting"

    My InterpretationThis is such a beautiful song. I love how the lyrics are so sophisticated and beautiful, I mean these days every artist is writing about love in such a derogatory manner and these lyrics are a pleasant change from that.
    I think the song is about being patient about falling in love and also keeping yourself pure for your future partner.
    "I'll be waiting for you baby"
    It's directed straight towards her future lover and it's basically saying 'I dont wan't to rush this. This only happens once in a while, lets make it last, lets savour it, lets do this how God wants us to do it.'
    I love how the song just really respects love and treats it how God would've wanted us to treat it - with patience and time, not just falling in love with everyone you date.
    I reckon Brooke Fraser had a particular person in mind when writing this, the lyrics are so loving and emotional. She has the most amazing voice.

    General CommentMaybe it is for any form of relationship...

    I think, it is allowing time, and space and The Lord to work through things between people... Not rushing things... like we all people do...

    No matter what, I believe, if we let God take control, there is definitely "Love Waiting" for us...
    Maybe a human relation or with God.... the latter is definite... If it is right before our eyes, make sure we do it well...

    I will wait too.

    General Comment"And like I can't force the sun to rise or hasten the sun mer's start,
    neither should I rush my way into your heart,"
    This statement is overwhelmingly true. When God tells us to wait on Him for His perfect timing, we need to WAIT.
    'Do not awaken love before it is ready,' Songs of solomon 8:4
    God has the right time and that is the only time in which things will work out the best.
    Of course things may still work out if you rush into things, but Gods timing is perfect and involves a lot less man-made problems!
