I've felt you coming girl, as you drew near
I knew you'd find me 'cause I longed you here
Are you my destiny? Is this how you'll appear?
Wrapped in a coat with the tears in your eyes?

Well take that coat babe, and throw it on the floor
Are you the one that I've been waiting for?

As you've been moving surely toward me
My soul has comforted and assured me
That in time my heart, it will reward me
And that all will be revealed

So I've sat and I've watched an ice-age thaw
Are you the one that I've been waiting for?

Out of sorrow entire worlds have been built
Out of longing great wonders have been willed
They're only little tears, darling, let them spill
And lay your head upon my shoulder

Outside my window the world has gone to war
Are you the one that I've been waiting for?

We will know, won't we?
The stars will explode in the sky
But they don't, do they?
Stars have their moment and then they die

There's a man who spoke wonders though I've never met him
He said, "He who seeks finds and who knocks will be let in"
I think of you in motion and just how close you are getting
And how every little thing anticipates you

All down my veins my heart-strings call
Are you the one that I've been waiting for?
Are you the one that I've been waiting for?
