Lyle Lovett - I'm Going To Wait Lyrics




Oh my brother, you've gone before me
And how I long to be with you
But through my sorrow
As I remain here
There is only one thing that I can do

So I'm gonna to wait (I'm gonna to wait)
Just a little bit longer (just a little bit longer)
I'm gonna pray (I'm gonna pray)
On bended knee (bended knee)
I'm gonna to wait (I'm gonna to wait)
Just a little bit longer (just a little bit longer)
Until my Savior (Savior comes for me)
He comes for me

Now I have faith
Built on a mountain
Greater than
A mustard seed
If I wait
Just a little bit longer
I know my Savior (Savior will come for me)
Will come for me

So I'm gonna to wait (I'm gonna to wait)
Just a little bit longer (just a little bit longer)
I'm gonna pray (I'm gonna pray)
On bended knee (bended knee)
I'm gonna to wait (I'm gonna to wait)
Just a little bit longer (just a little bit longer)
Until my Savior (Savior comes for me)
He comes for me

If I die
I'll go to heaven
And my Savior
I'll surely see
But if I wait (if I wait)
Just a little bit longer (just a little bit longer)
I know my Savior (He will come for me)
Will come for me

So I'm gonna to wait (I'm gonna to wait)
Just a little bit longer (just a little bit longer)
I'm gonna pray (I'm gonna pray)
On bended knee (bended knee)
I'm gonna to wait (I'm gonna to wait)
Just a little bit longer (just a little bit longer)
Until my Savior (Savior comes for me)
He comes for me

I'm gonna to wait (I'm gonna to wait)...

    I love this song. I had the opportunity to sing background for him on this song a long long time ago. Wait just a little longer.

  2. Gordon Jackson Sr.

    The first time i ever heard this song was, Aug. 12, 2017, at Kentucky Kingdom. Me & my wife were taking a break, trying to cool off, & listening to the music they were playing. They were playing Rock music, & i heard some music from the Jackson Five. But then, this song came on, & i asked my wife, baby, ain't that some Gospel music, & she said i think so. But, i'm here to tell you, at that moment, i fell in love with this song. I don't know much about Mr. Lovett, but i pray that he will continue to touch lives with his song ministry. GOD Bless you all!

    When PC speakers and an ambient live cell phone recording bring the goosebumps when the choir kicks in... you know you've really got something. Fantastic. Thanks for sharing this. Lyle is incredible and always graciously surrounds himself with the best of the best. Incredible and moving song he wrote here. Sounds like it should be a venerable traditional song, but apparently it's his.

    I swear Al Sharpton is in there!:)

    Oh my Brother, You’ve gone before me
    And how I long to be with you
    But through my sorrow

    Just a little bit longer (just a little bit longer)
    I’m gonna pray (I’m gonna pray)

    I’m gonna to wait (I’m gonna to wait)
    Just a little bit longer (just a little bit longer)
    Until my Savior (Savior comes for me)
    He comes for me

    Now I have faith
    Built on a mountain
    Greater than
    A mustard seed
    If I wait
    Just a little bit longer
    I know my Savior (Savior will come for me)
    Will come for me

    So I’m gonna to wait (I’m gonna to wait)
    Just a little bit longer (just a little bit longer)
    I’m gonna pray (I’m gonna pray)

    I’m gonna to wait (I’m gonna to wait)
    I’m gonna to wait (I’m gonna to wait)
    I’m gonna to wait (I’m gonna to wait)
    I’m gonna to wait (I’m gonna to wait)
    I’m gonna to wait (I’m gonna to wait)
    I’m gonna to wait (I’m gonna to wait)

    Beautifully moving...brought tears to my eyes as he expressed so clearly for me how I cope daily with the loss of my brother, mother, father, grandparents and so many others I love. I'm just gonna wait.

  8. californialinchen

  9. Heidi Fetzer

    i love the Cactus Cuties

  10. Michael Sudyk

    i cried first time i heard it....this is music

  11. californialinchen

    I found this because of the Cactus Cuties, who sang an amazing version of this

    meanchiefjones

    Do yourselves a favor and check out the Cactus Cuties. They're unlike any
    singing group. And then after you hear their professionalism and close a capella harmony you'll be gobsmacked and THEN realize they're all 12 +/- 2 yo!

  12. mousejustmouse

    Don't see this one often... gotta love that amazing bass by Willie Greene!

  13. bargtay
