about

This song, the second collaboration with songwriter Mick Standing, started out as a smartphone voice recording snippet that I shared with Mick.

He added some lyrics to it and from there it just took a life of it's own. It's amazing what you can do with four chords and some dynamics.

lyrics

Waiting For You
(C. Stewart/M. Standing)

V1
An old woman is staring out her window
She casts her eyes upon a dying world
She knows her life has always been in limbo
It’s been that way since she was a little girl

V2
She wonders why her empty heart is trembling
It’s because she finds herself alone
And every day needs reassembling
It’s as if she had been born a clone

Ch
All her life been waiting for you
All her life has broken in two
All her life was waiting for you

V3
She is calling out across a river
She hears an echo screaming through the dark
But there is no one else to hear her
There is no more life in her beating heart

V4

She turns away and meditates in the silence
And wonders how all of this can be
Her dying world, it lead to so much violence
Her pain and sorrow surrounds her needs

Chorus (x2)

Solo
