Foreigner - Waiting for a Girl Like You




"Waiting for a Girl Like You" is a 1981 power ballad by the British-American rock band Foreigner. The distinctive synthesizer theme was performed by the then-little-known Thomas Dolby. It was the second single released from the album 4 and was co-written by Lou Gramm and Mick Jones.


In his autobiography, Lou Gramm tells of a beautiful, mysterious woman who appeared in the control room when he was recording his vocal and gave him the inspiration to deliver the stirring take that was better than he has ever sung the song. He writes that this ephemeral beauty vanished, and he has never discerned her identity.





Lyrics

So long, I've been looking too hard, I've been waiting too long Sometimes I don't know what I will find, I only know it's a matter of time

When you love someone, when you love someone It feels so right, so warm and true, I need to know if you feel it too Maybe I'm wrong, won't you tell me if I'm coming on too strong? This heart of mine has been hurt before, this time I want to be sure

I've been waiting for a girl like you to come into my life I've been waiting for a girl like you, your loving will survive I've been waiting for someone new to make me feel alive Yeah, waiting for a girl like you to come into my life

You're so good, when we make love it's understood It's more than a touch or a word can say Only in dreams could it be this way

When you love someone, yeah, really love someone Now, I know it's right, from the moment I wake up till deep in the night There's nowhere on earth that I'd rather be than holding you tenderly

I've been waiting for a girl like you to come into my life I've been waiting for a girl like you, your loving will survive I've been waiting for someone new to make me feel alive Yeah, waiting for a girl like you to come into my life

I've been waiting, waiting for you, ooh Ooh, I've been waiting (Waiting) I've been waiting (I've been waiting for a girl like you, I've been waiting) won't you come into my life? Aah-aah-aah
