While I Was Waiting

This song is by Chely Wright and appears on the album Never Love You Enough (2001).

I fumbled with the napkin
I had a glass of wine
I was a little early
I had a little time
I sat up at the bar
Talkin' to a stranger
It seemed a safe thing to do
While I was waiting
While I was waiting for you

He said that I was pretty
Then he turned back to his beer
And somethin' 'bout this stranger
Was subtle and sincere
He said he grew up in Memphis
But he didn't like the blues
And our one dance turned into two
While I was waiting
While I was waiting for you

When you walked in the door
When you walked up to him
When you took my hand
And said that you were cutting in
This stranger from Memphis
Was very polite
He said "You sure do have a lovely wife"
Wife, he thought I was your wife

Well that's what got me thinking
It's like someone slammed a door
You just want a girlfriend
I want so much more
You ask me what's the hurry
You say let's take our time
Well I say our time it just flew
While I was waiting
While I was waiting
For you to pop the question
For you to make your move
I turned in to someone new
While I was waiting
While I was waiting for you
Waiting for you
While I was waiting for you
While I was waiting for you
