​Someone Waiting Home

This song is by Shannon and appears on the album Let The Music Play (1984).

It's 5 o'clock
And everybody hurries for the door
While I lay back and hang around some more
They can rush to love one's waiting home
But I don't wanna rush
To be alone
Teasing me, the fellas start a game
Saying I've got no where to be
So I just make up a name
Of someone waiting patiently
Someone waiting home for me

It's 10 o'clock
And the girls are wrapped in love
While I'm alone
Wrapped up in my heartache all alone
Why there's no love for me
I'll never understand
I want no more than any other woman
Tearfully, I get on my knees and ask
If something's in my destiny
Or maybe something's in my past
That may be changed so there can be
Someone waiting home for me

In the morning I drag to my car
Lost in depression
I meet with my neighbor and offer him a ride
And that special light in his smile
Offers back the impression
Love has been right in my backyard all of the time
And suddenly I know my silent prayers were heard
And when the guys start in on me
I never breathe a word
That tonight there's gonna be
Someone waiting home for me

Someone waiting home
Someone waiting home
Someone waiting home
I'll be waiting
Patiently
(Just for me)
Someone waiting home
(I'll be waiting)
Someone waiting home
(Everyday girl)
For me
(Everyday)
Someone waiting home
Someone waiting home
(I love you, baby)
For me
(For you)
Someone waiting home
Someone waiting home
(I'll be waiting, baby, hey girl)
For me
