  • Standin' here in our final hour
    I can't believe this is the end.
    Now I wish that I had the power
    To start this all over again.
    'Cause I know that I'm gonna
    Miss you when your gone
    And I'd hate to leave it this way
    So just make a move
    You've got nothing to lose, no.

    Here I am
    Take a chance
    What are you waiting for
    I'm telling you
    As a friend
    We could be so much more
    I never thought anyone ever could
    Make me feel this way
    So make my day
    What are you waiting for?
    What are you waiting for?

    Without you it's gonna be lonely
    So lets make the most of tonight
    Did I ever say you were the only
    One who could make it alright
    Now I don't know when I'm
    Gonna to see you again
    Can't you take my mind off the pain
    So just make a move
    You've got nothing to lose, no.

    Here I am
    Take a chance
    What are you waiting for
    I'm telling you
    As a friend
    We could be so much more
    I never thought anyone ever could
    Make me feel this way
    So make my day

    Don't make me feel stupid
    Don't say I was wrong
    Building this up in my mind for so long
    Now our times running out
    So you've got to be strong
    If you want to make this right
    Break the ice
    Don't think twice
    Take me away
    What are you waiting for?

    I never thought anyone ever could
    Make me feel this way
    So make my day

    Here I am
    Take a chance
    What are you waiting for
    I'm telling you
    As a friend
    We could be so much more
    I never thought anyone ever could
    Make me feel this way
    So make my day
    What are you waiting for?

  • Jimmy from Ny, NyHi Miranda, I do hope you are reading this:
    I really do adore your music, like, a lot. And, you wrote the song "Adored" didn't you? (Please say yes, it's such a mellifluous song!"
    Also, is "What Are You Waiting For" going to be an actual song you'll sing? If so (hopefully), I can't wait to listen to it!!
