I used to dream of somebody like you
That I fell in love with,
And he loved me too
Then one day I woke up,
And like a beautiful song
You sang to my heart
What took you so long

Chorus:
Where have you been,
With your tender kiss
All of my life I've been longing for this
I kept thinking I'd found you,
Just to find I was wrong
Now finally you found me
What took you so long

I can't believe it's as good as it feels
But I know I'm not dreaming,
So this must be real
There's only one question
I keep dwelling on
What in the world took you so long

Repeat chorus

I kept thinking I'd found you,
Just to find I was wrong
Now finally you found me
What took you so long
Finally you found me
What took you so long
