While I Was Waiting Lyrics

While I Was Waiting - Chely Wright

I fumbled with the napkin

 

I had a glass of wine

I was a little early

I had a little time

I sat up at the bar

 

Talkin' to a stranger

It seemed a safe thing to do

While I was waiting

While I was waiting for you

 

He said that I was pretty

Then he turned back to his beer

And somethin' 'bout this stranger

Was subtle and sincere

He said he grew up in Memphis

But he didn't like the blues

And our one dance turned into two

 

While I was waiting

 

While I was waiting for you

 

When you walked in the door

 

When you walked up to him

When you took my hand

And said that you were cutting in

This stranger from Memphis

Was very polite

He said "You sure do have a lovely wife"

 

Wife he thought I was your wife

 

Well that's what got me thinking

It's like someone slammed a door

You just want a girlfriend

I want so much more

You ask me what's the hurry

You say let's take our time

 

Well I say our time it just flew

While I was waiting

 

While I was waiting

For you to pop the question

For you to make your move

 

I turned in to someone new

 

While I was waiting

 

While I was waiting for you

 

Waiting for you

 

While I was waiting for you

 

 

While I was waiting for you
