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

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


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


Waiting for you
