My heart is breaking, my whole life is shaking
Every way I turn, I know this love is gonna burn me
But I'm waiting on you, no matter what you do
Ever since you went away, I suffer each an' every day
An' I can't hide the heartache anymore
You left me all alone, just waiting by the telephone
Too scared to step outside this prison door
An' I'm waiting on you
Chorus:
No matter what you say, no matter what you do, this heart is dedicated to you
'Til the rivers run dry and the sun no longer shines
I'm still gonna make you mine
I'm waiting on you, waiting on you
Ever since I started drinking, my ship's been slowly sinking
So tell me what's a man supposed to do
When people stop and stare and see me drowning in despair
'Cos it's written on my face, what I've been going through
An' I'm waiting on you
(chorus)
I'm waiting on you, waiting on you
(Solo)
My heart is breaking, my whole life is shaking
Every way I turn, I know this love is gonna burn
Love is gonna burn, love is gonna burn
Burn me, baby, burn, your love is gonna burn
Ever since you went away, I've suffered each an' every day
An' I can't hide the loneliness no more
All the tears I've cried, all the love I've been denied
An' still you find me waiting on you, baby baby babe
(chorus)
I'll be waiting on you, waiting on you
My heart is dedicated to you, and I'm waiting on you, waiting on you
No matter what you say, no matter what you do, this heart is dedicated to you
'Til the rivers run dry, I'll be waiting on you, waiting on you
My heart is dedicated to you, and I'm waiting on you, waiting on you
No matter what you say, no matter what you do, my heart is dedicated to you
'Til the rivers run dry, I'll be waiting on you, babe
