While she lays sleeping, I stay out late at night and play my songs And sometimes all the nights can be so long And it's good when I finally make it home, all alone While she lays dreaming, I try to get undressed without the light And quietly she says: how was your night? And I come to her and say: It was all right, and I hold her tight. (Chorus:) And she believes in me, I'll never know just what she sees in me I told her someday if she was my girl, I could change the world With my little songs, I was wrong But she has faith in me And so I go on trying faithfully And who knows maybe on some special night, If my song is right I will find a way, find a way... While she lays waiting, I stumble to the kitchen for a bite Then I see my old guitar in the night Just waiting for me like a secret friend, and there`s no end While she lays crying, I fumble with a melody or two And I`m torn between the things that I should do And she says to wake her up when I am through, God her love is true... Chorus while she waits... while she waits for me!
