Others have touched me soft in the night
And others have kissed me and held me tight
Good times and lovers I've had a few
But I was just waiting for someone like you.
Others have loved me before your time
Some who were gentle, some who were kind
Don't it seem funny I never knew
I was just waiting for someone like you.
No, I never wasted a minute of my time
'Cause every road I ever took led me to your side
I've been lonely and I have been loved
I got used to losin' what I'm fondest of.
But it's all so clear now my whole life through
I was just waiting for someone like you...
