I'm Still Waiting Here for You
Paul Anka Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

(You didn't even say goodbye)
So I sit here & I cry
There's nothing left for me to do
But I'm still waiting here for you

(You didn't even say you cared)
Now my love in you is shared
I don't know why you made me blue
But I'm still waiting here for you

I will walk through the storm
All my tears fell like the rain
I will long & I will mourn
Till you're back in my arms once again

(So darling, won't you hear my plea)
& please return your love to me
& then I will not be so blue
& I'll no longer wait for you

(So darling, won't you hear my plea) Darling, hear my plea
(Please return your love to me) Return your love to me
& I will not be so blue
& I'll no longer wait for you





(You didn't even say goodbye)

I love it. I think, I heard him do that on a video of an old TV show and he was quite young . Its very romantic . Its always nice to know someone will wait for you. Many people are not aware of the great voice & song styling talent Paul had. I notice , because I was a singer myself.
