"Waiting For Love" as written by Alecia B Moore, Paul Iii Macleod, Brian Macleod, Linda Perry and Eric Schermerhorn....
She looks to the sun
Help her to carry on
Breaking down all the years
Wondering how she got here

She drifts through the sky
Counting the reasons why
How my life turns so fast
Remembering all of the past

All the changes and all the mistakes
Foolishly laughing at things that
Words that she said
She looks to the stars
Breaking time to follow the heart
Her world is falling apart

And the turning of every new page
A book on a shelf that is there to remain
Breaking the walls as she's tearing them down
As she is starting to drown

[Chorus]
She's waiting for love
She's waiting, waiting for love
She's waiting, waiting for love
She's waiting, waiting too long

She prays to the gods
Telling how she needs someone
Help me find where I am today
Life is looking very gray

All the changes and all the mistakes
Foolishly laughing at things that
Everything that she says

[Chorus]

I'm waiting for a new day to rise
Conversations to make sense to me in my mind
I need someone to lift me right up from my feet
And I want it, and I need it
And I ?

And all the changes I've made
And I remember the words that you never say

[Chorus]

She looks to the sun

    General CommentIt's obviously about a woman who has been unsuccessful at finding a soulmate or someone to take care of her. It's also probably about someone incredibly lonely and needs someone in her life to cure her loneliness.

    General CommentHow has no one commented on this song yet? It's possibly the best on the album!

    The title and lyrics are pretty self-explanitory...

    General CommentBeautiful. Lyrically, performance-wise, instrumentally...

    Just a gorgeous song, about a girl who's drifitng aimlessly through her life "waiting for love". How she needs love so badly she "prays to the gods", and she's just floating through the sky as she waits.
    I love the bridge at the end - the way it's sung, so passionately, is really poignant and thought-provoking.

    Such an amazing song. My favourite off the album apart from Save My Life =]
