Michael McDonald - I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me) Lyrics




Like a warrior that fights and wins the battle
I know the taste of victory
And I went through some nights consumed by shadows
I was crippled emotionally

But somehow I made it through the heartache
Yes, I did, I escaped
I found my way out of darkness
I kept my faith, I kept my faith

When the river was deep I did not falter
When the mountain was high I still believed
When the valley was low it did not stop me
'Cause 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
Like a bridge that's on fire, the hurt is over
One touch and you set me free, baby

I don't regret a single moment
No, I don't look back
When I think of all those disappointments
I just laugh

When the river was deep I did not falter
When the mountain was high I still believed
When the valley was low it did not stop me
'Cause I knew you were waiting
Knew you were waiting for me

So we were drawn together through destiny
Oh baby, I know this love we shared was meant to be
I knew you were waiting, knew you were waiting
I knew you were waiting for me

I did not falter
When the mountain was high I still believed
When the valley was low it did not stop me
'Cause I knew you were waiting
Knew you were waiting for me

When the mountain was high
When the valley was low
'Cause I knew you were waiting
Knew you were waiting for me

I did not falter
When the mountain was high I still believed
When the valley was low it did not stop me
'Cause I knew you were waiting
Knew you were waiting for me

When the mountain was high
When the valley was low

  10. Terry Wilson

    I've seen him several times live. Saw him in CA at the NAMM show back in 2000 at the tribute Yamaha gave him. While people can offer differing opinions on their preference of style, no one I know that does know anything about music, writing, and vocals can deny this man is brilliant & unique. One of the most distinctive voices in modern music and a hit machine in the 70's, 80's, and 90's.

    Terry Wilson ? I am a little confused about what you want me to get back with the new one and the best of my life I have a great time and I am going to be able and willing to do this for a while back I have been a bit more about this and I will have the best of the best way for you and I'm sure I can do this and I have a great TIME with the best of my life and the rest of my life with you and I am a very good and bad for the first time in my life I have a great day and time to do this for a while back to the best way to do this is a little more than one person can do to make sure that you are not going anywhere else I need the best of the best of my life with the new one and I have a good idea to get back with you and I will be in the future and the rest of your life but the only thing I have to do this is the same as the original owner and founder the best regards to MY account I am going on with the best of the best of my life with you to see if you want to be a great time and the rest of my life and the best way to get the chance of a little more time with you to be a great day and time to get back to the best way to get a chance of life time opportunity to be able and willing to do this for me and my wife has been sent from my phone and it is the first place I have a great time and the rest of my life and death of the beast in the future and the other side of my dreams and goals for this calendar and see if you want to be a little more about this and the rest of my dreams and aspirations of your days be the only thing I have to do this for the trouble to be a little bit more about your experience with this is a great time in my opinion and I am a very long and hard working person who is the only one I have been set to go back to the best of the best of my life and the rest of my dreams. I Love you with all my heart and soul.

  15. chuck wilson

    michael mcdonald was this good when he used to be part of the Guild at the collinsville,IL ballroom in the early 70's.  we used to open for them and man he could  sing.

  16. Michele Traum

    This song makes me move. What a talented musician!

  17. TheSunnybunny2000

    NOTHING BEATS GM & AF VERSION BUT FUCK THIS IS GOOD

  18. Aldo Loleo

    QUE SABEN ESTOS PERJILES,

  19. ultrastark1

    imo best version of this canzone is Aretha and George Michael....but i like this because of McDonalds unique vocals

    Elizabeth Skinner-Orgeron

    ultrastark1 No one can do this song like Aretha and George (and I say this as a huge MM fan) - but MM comes as close as it gets.

  20. col227

    Great singer,cant deny that but this song is really not for him.

  21. COHEN AUSTIN ITIBA

    While this is such a brilliant song, I think Mr. McDonald is making too much effort to hit a high note which is actually unwarranted for this song. And every now and then he attempts to hit a note his voice falls out of the musical arrangement of the song. Fatally flawed performance, I must hasten to add.

  22. Sabrina M.Cummings

    Some people dont know about vocal tech. that is his style of singing he is not shouting, though is sounds that way to one not versed in voice.

  23. depeau44

    @BREDATOR1 i agree..mike has one of the best voices out there... but he needs to leave this one to gm and af

  24. Leif Ångqvist

    ´Nugh said :-)

  25. dewy200884

    terrible version !!!
