Carmen Ezgeta

If it takes forever I will wait for you
For a thousand summers I will wait for you  
Till you're back beside me, till I'm holding you    
Till I hear you sight here in my arms       

Anywhere you wander, anywhere you go          
Every day remember how I love you so              
In your heart belive what in my heart I know                
That forevermore I will wait for you                    

The clock will tick away the hours one by one                       
Then the time will come when all the waiting's done                         
The time when you return and find me here and run                             
Straight to my waiting arms                               

If it takes forever I will wait for you                                   
For a thousand summers I will wait for you                                      
Till you're here beside me, till I'm touching you                                         
And forevermore sharing you love
