  • Hands, don't let her go, 'cause then the midnight icy winds will blow
    Eyes, give every drop, this ain't the way that should've made her stop
    Arms, just let her know, no one fills the place she used to grow
    Smile, don't leave me now, 'cause you're the reason she's here anyhow

    Words, be gentle when you speak into her heart
    'Cause if it breaks, she may not come again

    [Chorus]
    I've been waitin' for your love and it's been here all the time
    Right in front of me
    I've been sittin', waitin' for your love, and all the time it's been here
    Right in front of me

    Look, forget your pride, she might kiss as you're like even tide
    Song, be in her heart, especially when we're apart
    Love, be by my side, 'cause if she leaves there ain't no place to hide
    Soul, be with her now, 'cause you're the first one she knew anyhow

    Words, be gentle when you speak into her heart
    'Cause if it breaks, she may not come again

    [Chorus]

    Words be gentle when you speak into her heart
    'Cause if it breaks, she may not come again

    I've been sittin', waitin' for your love, and all the time it's been here
    Right in front of me
    Draw the line, I'll step across, even further I give in, you got me, yeah
    I've been sittin', waitin' for your love, and all the time it's been here
    Right in front of me, yeah
    Just separated by ten thousand miles, you're not alone, girl you got me, yeah
    Guess I needn't tell you that I'm not around, I'm inside, you got me, yeah
    I've been waitin' for your love, it's been here all the time
    Right in front of me Writer/s: BOBBY KIMBALL, DAVID PAICH

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn this day in 1983 {August 13th} a video of Toto's "Waiting For Your Love" was aired on the ABC-TV Saturday afternoon program, 'American Bandstand'...
    Two weeks earlier it had peaked at #73 {for 1 week} on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart, and it spent a total of six weeks on the Top 100...
    It reached #27 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary Tracks chart...
    Between 1978 and 1988 the Los Angeles-based sextet had fourteen records on the Hot Top 100 chart, four made the Top 10 with one* reaching #1, "Africa", for 1 week in 1983...
    Besides the above "Africa", their three other Top 10 records were "Hold The Line" {#5 in 1978}, "Rosanna" {#2 for 5 weeks in 1982}, and "I Won't Hold You Back" {#10 in 1983}...
    Sadly, three band members have passed away; Jeff Porcaro {1954 – 1992}, Dennis Frederiksen {1951 – 2014}, and Mike Porcaro {1955 – 2015}...
    May all three R.I.P.
    * The just missed having a second #1 record when their "Rosanna" peaked at #2 for 5 weeks in 1982, the first three weeks it was at #2, the #1 record for those 3 weeks was "Don't You Want Me" by the Human League, and for weeks four and five at #2, "Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor was in the top spot...
