Don't wait for your love
To come from tomorrow 
Don't wait for your love
To come from yesterday 
Your heart better skip a
Beat tomorrow 
Your heart better jump
A beat from yesterday 
Don't wait for the
Love you lost
When someone needs
The love that you have
Don't ache for the
Love you need
 Someone somewhere
 Wants what you've got

 Maybe she's looking 
For you in London 
L is for lover  Maybe she's looking 
For you in Boston 
O is for an offer  Maybe she's looking 
For you in Houston 
V you got to venture  Maybe she's looking 
For you in Kingston 
E maybe forever

Don't wait for your mum
To lesson your sorrow 
Don't wait for the crown 
To bring you brighter days
Your heart better skip
A beat to tomorrow 
Your heart better jump
A beat from yesterday 
Don't wait for the love you lost
When someone needs
The love that you have
Don't ache for the love you need
 Someone somewhere
 Wants what you've got
Don't cry for the love you lost
When someone needs
The love that you have
Don't sigh for the love you need
 Someone somewhere
 Wants what you've got

Do not cry for the love you lost
Do not cry for the love you need
Do not mourn for the love you lost
Don't mourn for the love you need
Do not cry for the love you lost
Do not ache for the love you need
Do not mourn for the love you lost
Don't mourn for the love you need

 Maybe she's looking for you in Moscow 
L is for lover  Looking for you in Glasgow 
O is for an offer  Maybe she's looking for you in Rio
V you got to venture  Maybe she's looking for you in Tokyo 
E maybe forever
 Maybe she's looking for you in Sydney 
L is for lover  Maybe she's looking for you in Philly 
O is for an offer  Maybe she's looking for you in Lisbon 
V you got to venture  Maybe she's looking for you in Brooklyn 
E maybe forever
