About Wait

"Wait" is a song recorded by White Lion and written by White Lion vocalist Mike Tramp and guitarist Vito Bratta. It was the lead single from their second album, Pride. The single was released on June 1, 1987, but did not chart until February 1988, around the time the band filmed their Live in New York concert for MTV. In May 1988, "Wait" finally cracked the top 10 in the US, due in no small part to MTV airing the "Wait" music video in regular rotation—nearly seven months after the single's release. The song peaked at #8 and also charted at #48 in Canada and #88 in the UK. The music video featured Christie Muhaw of The Flirts, who died in a car accident less than a year after the video propelled the song into the top 10. Her death at only 24 years old made the song's lyrics especially poignant. "Wait" was re-recorded in 1999 on the album Remembering White Lion (also released as "Last Roar" in 2004) and a live version was released in 2005 on the live album Rocking the USA. The live version was released as a promo and later iTunes single and also features as a bonus track on the album Return of the Pride.

Wait, wait
I never had a chance to love you
Now I only want to say I love you one more time

Wait, just a moment before our love will die
'Cause I must know the reason why we say goodbye
Wait, just a moment and tell me why
'Cause I can show you lovin' that you won't deny

I said wait, and show your lovin' like it was before
'Cause I won't let that feelin' walk out through the door
I said wait, just a moment and try once more
'Cause babe, I need to hold you like I did before

So if you go away, I know that I will follow
'Cause there's a place inside my heart that tells me 
Hold out, hold out, hold out, oh baby

Wait, wait
I never had a chance to love you
Wait, wait
If only our love could show you
Wait, wait
I never want to be without you
Wait, wait
No, I never had a chance to love you
Now I only want to say I love you one more time

So if you go away, I know that I will follow
'Cause there's a place inside my heart that tells me 
Hold out, hold out, hold out, oh baby

Wait, wait
I never had a chance to love you
Wait, wait
If only our love could show you
Wait, wait
I never want to be without you
Wait, wait
No, I never had a chance to love you
Now I only want to say I love you 
Baby, I'm begging you, baby
No, I never had a chance to love you
