Girl I know that you've been waiting and talking to your friends
Wondering if and wondering where and wondering when
Well I've been waiting too, holding on to this ring
For the right words to say, for the right time and place, for me to get on one knee
Scotty McCreery told Billboard
this is his favorite lyric from the song as he had the ring in the closet for four or five months. "I was waiting for the right time, but I was scared she might open the closet and do some clothes hunting," he explained. "I had it in a shoebox, in a shoebox, in another shoebox, so she would've had to been really looking for it."
