Song #3: Your Parents

Song #3: The song that Reminds You of Your Parents

For this, I have chosen Richard Marx - Right Here Waiting

I chose this song because it's one of my parents' favourite songs, and when I was younger, everytime I joined a singing competition, or performance for any event, my mom would recommend that I sing this. Not only for me, but for my sisters as well. I have to admit, when I was young, I didn't understand what the lyrics really meant, I only knew how to sing it cos I have them memorised. But now, when I listen to this song again, the lyrics touch a chord in me. You don't get much songs like these nowadays.

Even now, I still remember how to sing this song, and when I go for my karaoke sessions with my buddies, I will still sing this song!! :D






Oceans apart, day after day
And I slowly go insane
I hear your voice on the line
But it doesn't stop the pain

If I see you next to never
But how can we say forever

[Chorus]
Wherever you go, whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you

I took for granted, all the times
That I thought would last somehow
I hear the laughter, I taste the tears
But I can't get near you now

Oh, can't you see it, baby
You've got me goin' crazy

[Chorus]

I wonder how we can survive
This romance
But in the end if I'm with you
I'll take the chance

Oh, can't you see it, baby
You've got me goin' crazy

[Chorus]

Waiting for you
