"Been Waiting" as written by Jessica Hilda Mauboy, Dwaine Israel Cruz and Craig Paul Hardy....
We've been friends for so long, I can't deny,
These feelings are so strong I keep hot inside,
Wanna tell you but I can't find the words to say,
So afraid if I do things will never be the same,
I gotta work it out, times really running out,
Don't know what to do but I know I gotta say it now,
Don't wanna lose a friend but why should I pretend,
That I don't love you when I've waited so long,

(So long) been waiting (so long) been waiting (so long)
I can't hold it back cause I've been waiting so long,
Been waiting (so long) been waiting (so long)
Been waiting (so long) I've been waiting so long,
I've been trying to tell ya, tell ya,
That we should be together, everyday,
Boy you're giving me something, something, oh
And I'm crazy in love with all you do,
Boy you're giving me something, something, something
Something, something, something, something, something

When you come to me and say some other girl has broke your heart once again,
Will you every learn, all this time I've been patiently,
Hoping that you would notice me, you need to know that I've been waiting so long,

(Chorus x2)

    My Interpretationwow i cant believe this song has no comments yet.

    such a simple yet real song, about that special friend that you want to say something to.

    subtly giving small hints "I've been trying to tell ya, tell ya", while trying not to over do it and complicate the friendship.. "So afraid if I do things will never be the same"

    however something (or maybe someone else) comes up and you find there is not much time before all might be lost "I gotta work it out, times really running out, Don't know what to do but I know I gotta say it now"

    its a bit ironic because this is sorta happening right now, and the person who showed me this is the friend. hard not to wonder whether the same is happening to her =/ or its just one of those small coincidences that we look to deep into. ah well

    *sigh*
