I Will Wait For You Lyrics

I've been waiting by the way
Chill of night and heat of day
I can't even count the hours
Wasted in these ivory tower

When in doubt and deep despair
Call for me, I will be there
If I cannot come myself
Please, don't call on no one else

I will wait for you in the morning
I will wait for you in the dawn
I will wait for you, my darling
I will wait for you till I'm gone

Blood red birds sing in the sky
Sun is spinning, my oh my
Stuck up on this barren hill
Pray for rain, it never will

I will tell you once again
Case you didn't hear before
You won't find a better ride
No one else will love you more

I will wait for you in the morning
I will wait for you in the dawn
I will wait for you, my darling
I will wait for you till I'm gone

If how I love you is a crime
I will gladly do my time
Count the days until parole
With silver chalk marks on my soul

I will wait on burning sand
Wade to you through rivers and
Make your every dream come true
If that is given me to do

I will wait for you in the morning
I will wait for you in the dawn
I will wait for you, my darling
I will wait for you till I'm gone

Seven horses dressed in gray
Come to bear my heart away
Nothing ventured, nothing lost
I would rather pay the cost

Set my reason on the line
Wreck my health and lose my mind
Grit my teeth, ignore the pain
Smile at loss and count it gain

I will wait for you in the morning
I will wait for you in the dawn
I will wait for you, my darling
I will wait for you till I'm gone

When I first saw you long ago
There was nothing else to know
I was yours, you were mine
Whatever else came down the line

Once upon a wintertime
Sun broke through the clouds to shine
Summers come and summers go
Can't say where but this I know

I will wait for you in the morning
I will wait for you in the dawn
I will wait for you, my darling
I will wait for you till I'm gone

I will wait for you in the morning
I will wait for you in the dawn
I will wait for you, my darling
I will wait for you till I'm gone
I will wait for you till I'm gone
