"For Those Who Wait" as written by and Dawn Futch Richardson Phillip Lee Shorb....
This is for those who wait

Another day another waiting game
A little different but it's still the same
I am here but where's the one I'm longing for?

I'm having troubles feeling all alone
Will my heart ever find a home?
I want to hope but sometimes I just don't know
I know I'm not the only one

So you sing a lullaby
To the lonely hearts tonight
Let it set your heart on fire
Let it set you free

When you're fighting to believe
In a love that you can't see
Just know there is a purpose
For those who wait

I want to open up my eyes
I know that all I need is time
I'm growing stronger every single day

God, I'm gonna leave them to You now
Letting go all of my fear and doubt
I can't do this on my own, so I'll give You control
I know I'm not the only one

So you sing a lullaby
To the lonely hearts tonight
Let it set your heart on fire
Let it set you free

When you're fighting to believe
In a love that you can't see
Just know there is a purpose
For those who wait

The pressure makes us stronger
The struggle makes us hunger
The hard lessons make the difference

The pressure makes us stronger
The struggle makes us hunger
The hard lessons make the difference
And the difference makes it worth it

So we sing a lullaby
To the lonely hearts tonight
Let it set your heart on fire
Let it set you free

When you're fighting to believe
In a love that you can't see
Just know there is a purpose
For those who wait

Let it set your heart on fire
This is for those who wait

    General Commenti think its about waiting for love to come to you and leaning on God when you get lonely waiting for him/her to show up. i also think that it has a little to do with waiting to have sex maybe?

    The pressure makes us stronger
    The struggle makes us hunger
    The hard lessons make the difference

    thats the vibe i get from this verse.
    thats just what i think though :)

    Song MeaningI think the song means for those who are going through hard times and they need help from someone, waiting for someone to help them, waiting on God to help them and once He did, everything seems to make a lot of sense.

    The pressure makes us stronger
    The struggle makes us hunger
    The hard lessons make the difference

    That part of the song has to be my favorite because if something bad happens to you there is always a purpose to it and that purpose could be that our faith needs to be strengthened.

    General CommentThis is my second favorite song on the new album. I'm seeing a theme in the newer songs by Fireflight.
    I believe that this song could have several different meanings.

    For me, it is about waiting for God. It's waiting for the promises He gives us, and waiting for the appearance of seeing Him. "When you're fighting to believe in a love that you can't see" means so much to me. While we can't see God, and it's frustrating and disheartening at times... especially when non-believers are trying to break down your beliefs. Despite all of that, there IS a purpose for those who wait on God.

    Another interpretation could be waiting on the "love of your life" to show up in your life. Waiting, as in, saving yourself for marriage... I could definitely see that message in it.

    But like I said, I'm leaning more towards the message of doubting and the fear that the One you are so desperately in love with isn't there. Which isn't true at all. He is there and He loves us.

    God bless you all. :)

    Song MeaningThe meaning for this song for me is the people who are gonna be saved. Who are waiting to hear the Gospel because they don't know yet. The reason why christians are still on this earth. To spread the message of Jesus.

    General Commentto me this song means that for those who are patient and enduring, there is something waiting for them in return.

    Such as, in the music video, there is a young woman who loves playing the violin. She has an abusive father (to which words do not describe how unjust that is) but she endures and waits, in return she is given the opportunity to play for composers. Something that she loves, or something she is talented at.

    same for christians, we wait for something entirely better than this life.

    My InterpretationTo me this song is talking about how we must struggle or at least have dedication. I believe you must have endurance in whatever it is you are doing to succeed, whether it is getting to heaven, accomplishing a goal, or (something this song really expresses for me) being abstinent until marriage.
    Even to non-Christians this song carries important lessons on dedication, persistence, and patience.
