I Knew You Were Waiting

Aretha Franklin 2008

Like a warrior that fights
And wins the battle
I know the taste of victory
Though i went through some nights
Consumed by the shadows
And was crippled emotionally
Somehow I made it through the heartache
I escaped
I found my way out of the darkness, kept my faith
Kept my faith

And the river was deep I didn't falter
When the mountain was high
I still believed
When the valley was low
It didn't stop me
I knew you were waiting
Knew you were waiting for me
With and endless desire
I kept on searching
Sure in time our eyes would meet
And like the bridge is on fire
The hurt is over
One touch and you set me free
I don't regret a single moment
Looking back, when I think of all those disappointments
I just laugh, I just laugh

So we were drawn together through destiny
I know this love we share was meant to be
It's only love
