Waiting For A Girl Like You Lyrics


(Constantine Maroulis, Amy Spanger, James Carpinello & The Rock Of Ages Cast)

LONNY
(spoken)
Ah, the muses of love. Many a great lyric have called upon their siren song.
And now my boy Drew is feeling the magic too...

DREW
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, oh yeah, when you love someone

SHERRIE
It feels so right, so warm and true
I need to know if you feel it too

DREW
Maybe I'm wrong
Won't you tell me if I'm coming on too strong

SHERRIE
This heart of mine has been hurt before
This time I wanna be sure

DREW
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

SHERRIE
I've been waiting for someone new
To make me feel alive

DREW
Yeah, waiting

SHERRIE
I've been waiting for a boy like you

DREW
For a girl like you

BOTH
To come into my life

SHERRIE
(Spoken)
Drew, I'm actually kinda nervous.

DREW
(Spoken)
Don't worry, it's cool! I mean, look, we're just a couple of friends, right?
Looking at stars, drinking wine coolers. No pressure.

LONNY
(Spoken)
What? Man, he's gonna kick himself later for that 'friend' crap.
The curse of the nice guy! See, you think its the smart play; ease them in with friendship.
But the fact is, what they really want, what's really going on in their heads? Love...

SHERRIE
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

I've been waiting for a boy like you
To come into my life
Yeah, waiting for someone new

LONNY
To make you feel alive
