I'm waiting again
Here on the corner
And it's cold out tonight.
But there's a chance you will meet me,
And so it's worth the chill.
My nose turns pink and my hands are icy
But my heart is warm.
I'm standing on the street corner,
Wishing you were here,
Wishing you were near.
Won't you come and see me?
Just a visit in the dark?
Where are you anyhow?
I look like a fool waiting here for you
But I'll wait as long as it takes.
I'm patiently cold,
Because I know you are on your way.
It won't be long before they stop laughing
At the girl standing on the street corner
Waiting like a fool
All by herself.
But I know better than anyone else
So I stay here on this pavement
Stubborn and Hopeful
Just waiting for my fairy tale to begin.
Once upon a time
Will happen right here
Standing on this street corner.
