I was waiting, waiting for my only one
So hard to find her, love was elusive kept me on the run
For so long now, I had all but given up
Day after day now, losing my faith and tired of all the noise

All my life, all the time, everyday, I was waiting
For you girl, now that you're here, here in my life, can't you tell me

Baby what, what took you so long?
I was waiting for you all along
Can't wait any longer, not one moment longer
Thank God that I found you. Girl I love you

Can it be true, are you really here with me?
Or am I dreaming? You came along and showed me I'm alive
Like an angel, when I look into your eyes
Melt my heart now, all of my life was leading up to you

You're my girl, my soulmate, my best friend, and my lover
How did I, how did I live, before you came, into my heart?
