Waiting (Re-Written for Out of the Ocean)

Standard

I’ve been waiting
For you to finally see
That you’re the only one for me
Got me on my knees
Begging you silently
Please just open your eyes.

Here I’m standing
Right in front of you
Pouring out my heart
But it don’t get to you
I’m screaming out your name
But you don’t hear
Please just open your ears

Come to me, oh, come to me
Come to me, I’ve been waiting

Follow my voice
To the shore
Hear me now
I’m waiting at your door
I can see a storm brewing
Over the sea
Can you see what I see?

I’ll protect your heart
I’ll never tear it
I will keep you safe
You can trust that
I will keep you dry
When it rains bad
Please, open your heart to me

Come to me, oh, come to me
Come to me, I’ve been waiting

I can’t keep waiting
For you to notice
I love you
The way she doesn’t
I won’t wait forever
Please don’t take much longer
To realize we were made for each other

So come to me, please come to me
I’ve been waiting, I am begging

I’ve been waiting for you to finally
See that you’re the only one for me

I re-wrote Waiting for Out of the Ocean, the sequel to What it Took to Realize/ Voodoo (inspired by Alexz Johnson) which is available for Kindle on Amazon. I had written a different song for Out of the Ocean, but I wasn’t very fond of it. That was when I realized I had a perfectly good song already written, so I took Waiting and personalized it for the character so it would fit the story!

Go to the original song Here!

Waiting War

Standard

waiting, waiting

all day by the phone

waiting, waiting

for the sound of my ring-tone

waiting, waiting

and it’s killing me

waiting, waiting

eating at my brain

waiting, waiting

and it’s stressing me out

waiting, waiting

I want to scream out

waiting, waiting

starring at the screen

waiting, waiting

for your name to pop up on my hand-held machine

waiting, waiting

until I feel I can’t no more

waiting, waiting

Still, a slave to this war.

I’ve been waiting
For you to finally see
That you’re the only one for me
Got me on my knees
Beggin’ you silently
Please just open your eyes.

Here I’m standing
Right in front of you
Pouring out my heart
But it don’t get to you
I’m screaming out your name
But you don’t hear
Please just open your ears.

{chorus}
I’ve been waiting
All this time
For you to come around
And say, “You’re mine.”
I’ve been waiting
Always by your side
For your warm embrace
Just to say you’re mine.

Talking on the phone
You sound so far away
Even though I know, you’re just a town away
I can hear my heart
Pounding in my chest
Can you hear it on your end?

Always seemed so closed up
Never knew how
To unlock you deepest thoughts
To let them all out
Wish I could find the key
Please just open you’re heart to me.

{chorus}
I’ve been waiting
All this time
For you to come around
And say, “You’re mine.”
I’ve been waiting
Always by your side
For your warm embrace
Just to say you’re mine.

I can’t keep waiting
But you seem so close
Just wanna reach out
But I have froze.
You’re just an inch away
Wanna kiss your lips
Guess it won’t hurt to wait.

{chorus}
I’ve been waiting
All this time
For you to come around
And say, “You’re mine.”
I’ve been waiting
Always by your side
For your warm embrace
Just to say you’re mine.

I’ve been waiting
For you to finally see
That you’re the only one for me
