The telephone's not answered
So many times you'll call
For many different reasons
So many tears will fall
Before you find your love
Before it comes knocking at your door
Before you know for sure
This is what you were waiting for
So many tears will haunt you
Deny them or regret
Some man will make you want to
And you will not forget
Before you find your love
Before it comes knocking at your door
Before you know for sure
This is what you were waiting for
There's a story of a man 
Who loved too much
He ended up inside a prison cell
You've got to want to give to get it
Or you could land up 
In the same suspicious hell
It's happened before, it's happened before
Coincidence and patience
Will mend this fatal flaw
Though it may seem a long wait
Others have been here 
Before you find your love
Before it comes knocking at your door
Before you know for sure
This is what you were waiting for
One day when the phone starts ringing
You'll answer to the words
You're longing for
No tears no trade no prison cell
Whatever you need 
He will return more
It's happened before, it's happened before
