I'll Wait

  • You've got me captured; I'm under your spell
    I guess I'll never learn
    I have your picture; yes I know it well
    Another page is turned
    Are you for real? It's so hard to tell
    From just a magazine
    Yeah, you just smile and the picture sells
    Look what that does to me

    I'll wait till your love comes down
    I'm coming straight for your heart
    No way you can stop me now
    As fine as you are

    I wrote a letter and told her these words
    That meant a lot to me
    I never sent it, she wouldn't have heard
    Her eyes don't follow me
    And while she watches I can never be free
    Such good photography!

    I'll wait till your love comes down
    I'm coming straight for your heart
    No way you can stop me now
    As fine as you are

    You can't imagine what your image means
    The pages come alive
    Your magic greets everyone who reads
    Heartbreak in overdrive
    Are you for real, it's so hard to tell
    From just a magazine
    Yeah, you just smile and the picture sells
    Look what that does to me
