I Will Wait for You

After I Will Wait for You, composed by Michel Legrand, original French lyrics by Jacques Demy,
English lyrics by Norman Gimbel

 

If it takes forever, I will wait for You.

For a thousand more lifetimes, I will wait for You.

‘Til you’re right beside me, ’til I’m touching You.

‘Til I feel your Presence and all is calm.

 

Anywhere it takes me, wherever I have to go,

Every day I remember, how I love You so.

In my mind I believe what in my heart I know

That forever more I’ll wait for You.

 

My soul will tick away the lifetimes one by one

And then the time will come when all the waiting’s done,

The time when I return and find You here and run

Straight to Your Shiva arms.

 

If it takes forever, I will wait for You.

For a thousand lifetimes, I will wait for You.

‘Til you’re here beside me, ’til I’m touching You

And forevermore merge in Your Love.
