Burton Cummings – I Will Always Wait For You lyrics

Clocks in the parking lot
Watching the time
Watch others steeplechase
Starting to chime

Timepieces holding
My life in their hands
Always remind me
Behind me, behind me

But I will always wait for you
Take my time and count on you
Somehow I know
You'll make it through
Until I see you
Until I feel you
Until I hear you

Second-hand sweeping
Our minutes to trial
Taking my future away
On the dial

But I'm not afraid
I'll be late for a while
The future surrounds me
The moment has found me

And I will always be with you
Take my time and count on you
Somehow I know
We'll make it through
Now that I see you
Now that I feel you
Now that I hear you

I Will Always Wait For You meanings

  • m
    It means a lot to me, lovelife and in life. I never quit and give up on something whether it is matter of life and death. When I see that something is possible I always go for it to achieve something special. The 1st stanza up to chorus is the "challenges" and the remaining stanza and chorus is "success".
