“Waiting for a Girl Like You” is a song by British-American rock band Foreigner. The distinctive synthesizer theme was performed by the then-unknown Thomas Dolby.
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 wanna 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, waiting for you, ooh, I’ve been 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?
