"Anticipation" as written by and Carly Simon....
We can never know about the days to come
But we think about them anyway, yay
And I wonder if I'm really with you now
Or just chasin' after some finer day

Anticipation, anticipation
Is makin' me late
Is keepin' me waitin'

And I tell you how easy it feels to be with you
And how right your arms feel around me
But I, I rehearsed those lines just late last night
When I was thinkin' about how right tonight might be

Anticipation, anticipation
Is makin' me late
Is keepin' me waitin'

And tomorrow we might not be together
I'm no prophet and I don't know nature's ways
So I'll try and see into your eyes right now
And stay right here 'cause these are the good old days

(These are the good old days)
And stay right here 'cause these are the good old days
(These are the good old days)
(These are the good old days)
(These are the good old days)
(These are…..the good old days)

    General Commentamazing song! i think it's about waiting for the right person to enter to your life and how when that person does enter everything is in order and feels absouletly perfect. its basically about searching for that person and dreaming of the days spent together

    General CommentYes, one of my all time favourites from Carly Simon.

    Did you know that Heinz co-opted this song in the 1970s and used it in a ketchup commercial? Brutal!

    General CommentCarly said she wrote this song about Cat Stevens, how cool is that. i had no idea they dated, they would've made a good couple.
