​I've Been Waiting

This song is by Little Steven & The Disciples Of Soul and appears on the album Men Without Women (1982) by ​Little Steven & The Disciples of Soul.

I've worked hard so I could say nobody owns me
You can spend your whole life trying to forget that you're lonely
Meanwhile the world went by and I paid it no mind
I thought I could close the doors 'cause baby I earned it
I felt I had to prove myself and that meant everything
Then you walked in, and suddenly I realized
I've been waiting such a long time
Waiting here for you, girl

We finally opened up our eyes and looked around us
Like children trying to hide but baby they found us
Now I don't recognize the streets no more
Now I feel guilty just havin' a good time
If we don't share the pain we live with how will it end
Honey, let's try again
Don't you tell me that the dream is over 'cause
I've been waiting such a long time
Waiting here for you, girl

Take your time girl, it won't disappear
Come tomorrow, I'll be right here
Oh, I ain't goin' nowhere because
I've been waiting such a long time
Waiting here for you, girl
