Wait 'Til You Hear from Me

Album: Unbelievable (2002)
  • [intro]
    This song is about maria
    A close friend of mine
    Who lost herself in drugs
    She told me to wait for her
    But guess what...
    She never came back
    And I'm still waiting
    She told me:

    [chorus]
    Wait 'til you hear from me
    Monday, Tuesday it won't be
    Wednesday, Thursday we will see
    If only you can wait baby

    Wait 'til you here from me
    Friday use your fantasy
    Saturday you got over me
    If only you can wait baby

    [verse 1]
    She was called maria and she really was a friend
    I remember when we were walking hand in hand
    She was telling me that she understands
    All the world and every thrill by taking little pills
    So she was trying everything and more
    Alcohol and speed, coke and weed and tried to score
    Tragedy: she didn't feel much better than before
    So she got away here quick to find a better kick

    [bridge]
    Never let it - wanna find her
    Can't forget it - to remind her
    She's my sister - wanna tell her
    How I miss her - she told me

    [chorus]

    [b-chorus]
    Wait - don't call you've got to
    Wait 'til you hear from me
    Wait - that's all you've got to
    Wait...

    [verse 2]
    When she arrived in the city of the stars
    Blinded by the lights, a burning in the heart
    She believed to play what she called her part
    A member of society to satisfy her dreams
    No one paid attention on her skills
    So she found crack is another way to fill
    The emptiness inside right now she got her thrill
    Guess, who gave his life away? she did it every day

    [bridge]

    [chorus]

    [narration-part]
    Why did she throw her life away?
    Why did she say don't call just wait?

    [c-part]
    If you wanna go to the city of stars
    Can you help me to find my girl maria
    She once was an actress and a beauty queen
    Then the drugs took over and made her mean
    I tried to stand by her side make her feel alright
    But she wished to get over to the other side
    And since I can't really get her out of my mind
    I'm asking you, won't you help me to find
    She told me

    [chorus]

    [b-chorus]
