Long Time Waiting
writer: J. Dandrea, music & lyrics
This song was one of those folk-style tunes that came tumbling out on guitar one evening while just thinking about how we so often may actually find that “right” partner in our lives, but life just keeps us apart no matter what we want. Circumstances just conspire to keep us from being together – jobs, geography, finances….. for whatever reason, we just can’t make it work out.
This is one of those bittersweet irony songs – in the end you just wind up saying that maybe someday, somewhere, in "another place and time", maybe. . . . but that this one "just wasn't meant to be". Chalk it up to life, love, and . . . experience.
