This is the title track and third single from former Trick Pony vocalist Heidi Newfield's debut solo album.
Newfield told AOL's The Boot about the song: "'What Am I Waiting For' is an anthem with a really cool storyline. I think everyone will be able to relate to it - men and women alike. It's about taking chances. It's about not biding your time and letting go of those things you don't have control of and remembering that there is a plan for you. It's about following instincts. If that means leaving a job that's kind of your comfort zone to step into a job that perhaps is something you've always wanted to do but it might be a bit of a sacrifice or a hard transition, then do it. It's about doing it because you don't want to get old and look back in the mirror someday saying, 'Gosh, I wish I had the guts to do that.' That's what this song is all about. The deep down story is that's how I was feeling about my transition that I waned to make with Trick Pony and stepping out into my own. Can I do it? It's a song about having the guts to follow your dreams."
