[Verse 1]

I never felt nothing in the world like this before
Now I'm missing you and I'm wishing you would come back through my door
Oooooo
Why did you have to go?
You could have let me know
So now I'm all alone,

Girl you could have stayed but you wouldn't give me a chance
With you not around it's a little bit more than I can stand
Oooooo
And all my tears they
Keep running down my face
Why did you turn away?

[Bridge]

So why does your pride make you run and hide?
Are you that afraid of me?
But I know it's a lie
What you keep inside
This is not how you want it to be

[Chorus]

So baby I will wait for you
Cause I don't know what else I can do
Don't tell me I ran out of time
If it takes the rest of my life

Baby I will wait for you
If you think I'm fine it just ain't true
I really need you in my life
No matter what I have to do
I'll wait for you

[Verse 2]

Been a long time since you called me
(How could you forget about me)
You gotta be feeling crazy (crazy)
Oooooo
How can you walk away,
Everything stays the same
I just can't do it baby
What will it take to make you come back
Girl I told you what it is and it just ain't like that
Oooooo
Why can't you look at me
You're still in love with me
Don't leave me crying.

[Bridge]

Baby why can't we just
Just start over again
Get it back to the way it was
If you give me a chance
I can love you right
But you're telling me it won't be enough

[Chorus]

So baby I will wait for you
Cause I don't know what else I can do
Don't tell me I ran out of time
If it takes the rest of my life

Baby I will wait for you
If you think I'm fine it just ain't true
I really need you in my life
No matter what I have to do
I'll wait for you

[Bridge]

So why does your pride make you run & hide
Are you that afraid of me?
But I know it's a lie
What you're keeping inside
That is not how you want it to be

Baby I will wait for you
Oooooo
Baby I will wait for you
If it's the last thing I do

Baby I will wait for you
If you think I'm fine it just ain't true
I really need you in my life
No matter what I have to do, I'll wait for you

I'll Be Waiting.

    I think it means, that the one who truly loves you will wait for you, though you're with someone else or, the two of you are far away from each other, he will still wait for you...

    this song means that the guy did something wrong or the girl was in pain because of him that's why the girl left him.he tried to bring back the girl,he ask for another chance but the girl was already gone.he doesn't know what to do to bring back everything or how could he fixed the problem,and decided to wait for her.
