Tom Petty Waiting For Tonight Lyrics

Last updated: 02/23/2011 10:00:00 AM

Written by: Tom Petty

I went walking down the boulevard
Passed the skateboards and the beggars
I was out looking in the windows
Just out walking and letting my mind roll

If you hung around too much, you might take for granted it
But I was away she seemed an angel
The only one who really cared about me
The only one without an angle

For so long I've been lonely
Now I'm too weak to fight
I've been waiting for tonight
I've been waiting for tonight

Yes, I had a little time to kill
Yes, I crossed the parking lot
And I was feeling lucky
Just to have a place to go

Yeah, my nerves were feeling shot
For so long I've been weary
There was no end in sight
I've been waiting for tonight
I've been waiting for tonight

Oh, I've been waiting around
For a night like this
Yeah, I felt it coming now
Since her first kiss

Yeah, I'm wresting with my overcoat
Yeah, I'm fighting with my thoughts
Yeah, I'm gonna trust my intuition
I'm gonna hope I don't get lost

For some time I've been lonely
I've been too weak to fight
I've been waiting for tonight
I've been waiting for tonight
I've been waiting for tonight
