I Knew You Were Waiting For Me
by Aretha Franklin & George Michael
Recommended by Janis, 3/15/01
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 made 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 an 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

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

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