Lyrics

Waiting

Birds in the sky, they all wonder why
You've not yet asked me to dance.
But they are too shy, so they just fly on by
While I am waiting for you to ask me to dance.

I'm as patient as a mountain
I've got nowhere to go
Nowhere to be
and nowhere to hide
Ask me to wait and I will.
I'll wait.
I will.

The promise of day, starts to slip away
It's waiting for you to ask me to dance.
The pale morning light, turns to auburn at night
While I'm waiting for you to ask me to dance.

I'm as patient as a mountain
I've got nowhere to go
Nowhere to be
and nowhere to hide
Ask me to wait and I will.
I'll wait.
I will.

Flowers they bloom, in the month of June
They're waiting for you ask me to dance
They wither away, on a mid-October day
I'm still waiting to ask me to dance.

I'm a patient bouquet on Valentine's Day
I've got somewhere to go
Somewhere to be
and some place to hide
Ask me to wait and I will.
I'll wait.
I will.
I'll wait, I will
I'll wait until ...
