I'll Be Waiting

  • Hold me closer, one more time
    Say that you love me in your last goodbye
    Please forgive me, for my sins
    Yes, I swam dirty waters
    But you pushed me in
    I've seen your face, under every sky
    Over every border and on every line
    You know my heart, more than I do
    We were the greatest, me and you

    But we had time against us
    And miles between us
    The heavens cried
    I know I left you speechless
    But now the sky has cleared and it's blue
    And I see my future in you

    I'll be waiting for you when you're ready to love me again
    I'll put my hands up
    I'll do everything different
    I'll be better to you,
    I'll be waiting for you when you're ready to love me again
    I'll put my hands up
    I'll be somebody different
    I'll be better to you

    Let me stay here for just one more night
    Build your world around me
    And pull me to the light
    So I can tell you that I was wrong
    I was a child then, but now I'm willing to learn

    But we had time against us
    And miles between us
    The heavens cried
    I know I left you speechless
    But now the sky has cleared and it's blue
    And I see my future in you

    I'll be waiting for you when you're ready to love me again
    I'll put my hands up
    I'll do everything different
    I'll be better to you
    I'll be waiting for you when you're ready to love me again
    I'll put my hands up
    I'll be somebody different
    I'll be better to you

    Time against us
    Miles between us
    Heavens cried
    I know I left you speechless
    Time against us
    Miles between us
    Heavens cried
    I know I left you speechless
    I know I left you speechless

    I'll be waiting
    I'll be waiting for you when you're ready to love me again
    I'll put my hands up
    I'll do everything different
    I'll be better to you
    I'll be waiting for you when you're ready to love me again
    I'll put my hands up
    I'll be somebody different
    I'll be better for you Writer/s: Adele Adkins, Paul Epworth
