About Waiting for Tonight

"Waiting for Tonight" is a song written by Maria Christensen, Michael Garvin, and Phil Temple. It was originally recorded by Christensen's girl group 3rd Party for their debut studio album, Alive (1997). Two years after the group disbanded, American singer Jennifer Lopez recorded her own version of the song for her debut studio album, On the 6 (1999). Ric Wake and Richie Jones produced Lopez's Latin house version of "Waiting for Tonight", which differs from the German-sounding Europop version that was recorded by 3rd Party. A Spanish version of the song, entitled "Una Noche Más", was adapted by Manny Benito and also recorded for the album. "Waiting for Tonight" was released on October 27, 1999, by the Work Group, as the third single from On the 6. "Waiting for Tonight" is considered by various publications, such as Entertainment Weekly and the Chicago Tribune, to be the best song of Lopez's career. Contemporary music critics have also credited the song with making her a leading artist in the dance-pop genre. It was used frequently as a celebratory anthem in anticipation for the dawn of the new millennium. The single was a commercial success, reaching the top ten in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States. "Waiting for Tonight" became Lopez's first song to top the US Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs chart. The song earned her a nomination for Best Dance Recording at the 42nd Annual Grammy Awards in 2000.

Like a movie scene, 
In the sweetest dreams, 
I have pictured us together 
Now to fell your lips, 
On my finger tips, 
I have to say is even better 
Than I ever thought it could possibly be 
It's perfect, it's passion, its setting me free 
From all of my sadness, 
The tears that I've cried, I have spent all my life 

Waiting for tonight, Oh 
When you would be here in my arms 
Waiting for tonight, Oh 
I've dreamed of this love for so long 
Waiting for tonight 

Tender words you say, 
Take my breath away, 
Love me now, and leave me never 
Found a sacred place, lost in your embrace, 
I want to stay in this forever 
I think of the days when the sun used to set, 
On my empty heart, 
All alone in my bed 
Tossing and turning emotions were strong, I knew I had to hold on 

Waiting for tonight, Oh 
When you would be here in my arms 
Waiting for tonight, Oh 
I've dreamed of this love for so long 

Waiting for tonight, Oh 
When you would be here in my arms 
Waiting for tonight, Oh 
I've dreamed of this love for so long 
Waiting for tonight 

Gone are the days when the sun used to set, 
On my empty heart all alone in my bed 
Tossing and turning, 
Emotions were strong 
I knew I had to hold on 

Waiting for tonight, Oh 
When you would be here in my arms 
Waiting for tonight, Oh 
I've dreamed of this love for so long 

Waiting for tonight, Oh 
When you would be here in my arms 
Waiting for tonight, Oh 
I've dreamed of this love for so long 

Waiting for tonight, Oh 
When you would be here in my arms 
Waiting for tonight, Oh 
I've dreamed of this love for so long 
Waiting for tonight, Oh
