Eric Clapton - She's Waiting Lyrics

She's waiting for another love.
She's waiting for another love.

She's been waiting for another love,
Someone that she can show into her heart.
And when she finally finds a stronger love,
Your whole world's gonna fall apart.


You've been abusing her for far too long;
Think you're a king and she's your pawn.
Get ready now, 'cause pretty soon
She'll be gone and you'll be on your own.


I see the hunger burning in her eye;
Any fool could see there's something wrong.
You keep pretending not to care,
But I will hear you sing a different song.


Waiting for another lover,
Hoping for the time that she'll find another...

  20. Lauren Pauley

    this song reminds me of riding in the backseat of my dads ford bronco, with a blanket over me, falling asleep listening to my parents talking...eric Clapton will always bring me back there. such a comforting feeling.

  24. Kimgirly

    She's waiting for another love #truth

  25. JohnACorp782

    Heard this recently in Miami Vice. Michael Chiklis was featured in the episode. :D


    Blistering rendition of Blues by the greatest of them! And to think that he was getting out of drug rehab.....Cant get any better.

  27. M1Anut

    I am my wife's 'another lover'. Happened just like the song says.

  28. daniel carrier

    A rescue progress mission is the morale for some!

  29. Tim McCreary


  30. MEDIC

    Happy mother's day everyone. This song reminds me of my departure mother. Her record collection was the best.

  31. Chris Hamilton

    Is this song to be interpreted this year for Hallie or Ashanti,...? At least for me. If Clapton is God,....then that is my question.

  32. Elie Elis

    Scary because computers are ruling limited minds...whos running this show but other less steller performers guarding communist ideals not jefferson ideal form.. Time to switch this up. Elis Elis

  33. bkzeppelin32 1

    when is that?1111141142

  34. bkzeppelin32 1

    for a love

  35. Taranau

    It might be just me,,, but, I know the song is called "She's Waiting". And the background singers sing "She's Waiting". And videos with the lyrics, say, it's "She's Waiting",,, but ---
    It sounds to me, like he's singing "She's Burning" for another love... But, it could be just me...

  36. Karen Barnett


  37. Durjoy Chakraborty

    Why this damn album did not see success, I wonder. It has more rock element that blues. Full of experimental sounds and experimental beats. Unlike most other Clapton albums, drum is playing a crucial role here. I love it.

  38. Renee Hannan


  39. Go-go Akins

  46. Tjitse Wolf

    This album is a little bit older than I am, from the same year though. And I have often felt i was born to late when it comes to my taste in music. Roughly 60% of my lp collection is '60s-80's stuff.

  47. Treetop Flyer

    This was about the point when he started getting a little commercial for my liking, but he still seemed to pull it off.

  48. Clifford Kilkenny

  75. Chris Hamilton

    I wish to God this were true, of you. Towards me, Ms. Hallie. You know that I am a brilliant man,...of ruthless ambition. In league with the bank of England. But I love you beyond measure, despite whatever shenanigans you pulled in your past. I could and would move mountains for you, with my faith, and willpower, combined. Beautiful woman!!!
