Jimmy was a shadow the youngest of three boys
How he longed to feel the light
Jimmy's older brothers sure could make some noise
So he became the quiet type
But deep inside he had some powerful dreams
He'd think about them then he'd smile

And he was gone, gone, to somewhere far beyond
Where he was strong, strong, shining in the sun
They say that someday the meekest heart will sing
There was jimmy waiting in the wings

Susie was a waitress morning noon and night
But she never did complain
Jimmy'd stopped for lunch there at least a thousand times
But one monday something changed
She leaned across him with some chocolate pie
Then he looked into her eyes


And he was gone, gone, to somewhere far beyond
His heart beat strong strong he knew she was the one
They say that someday the meekest heart will sing
Love found jimmy waiting in the wings


And when he held her for the very first time
He found the one thing he'd been missing all his life


And they were gone, gone, to somewhere far beyond
Their love was strong strong two hearts beat as one
He stood beside her and she put on his ring
And when she smiled how his heart did sing

They say that someday the meekest heart will sing
So remember if you're waiting in the wings
