Waiting For A Cure From You

Waiting For A Cure From You

A Tribute To Everyone Involved In Treating Cancer Patients

(alternative lyrics to Foreigner’s acoustic recording of “Waiting For A Girl Like You”)

 

 These words popped into my head while listening to my Ipod  Set on “shuffle”, Foreigner’s acoustic version of “Waiting For A Girl Like You” came on.  We have all at one time or another started singing other words to a song.  For whatever reason, I was thinking about everything that doctors, nurses, techs, therapists, and all of the other caregivers do for us as cancer patients.  There are plenty of times that cancer patients are recognized for their battles, but rarely are those who are responsible for our remission honored.  The words did not take long to come into form.

Verse

So long.

I’ve been sick for so long,

feeling frail for too long.

With no idea what you find,

I only know it’s a matter of time.

My health is on the line. 

My health is on the line.

 

Time is tight, the race is on,

only one chance for it to be gone.

 

Wish it was wrong.

Won’t you tell me that I will live for so long?

Friends of mine have been hurt before.

This time, I want to be sure.

 

Chorus

I am waiting, for a cure from you

to give me back my life.

I am waiting, for a different choice

somehow I will survive.

I am waiting, for someone who

can help me stay alive.

I am waiting, for a cure from you

to help me save my life.

 

Verse

You’re so good.

Explain things to me that it’s understood.

It’s more than just meds or words “it’s okay.”

I have hopes and have dreams make this okay.

My health is on the line.

My health is on the line.

 

Make everything right.

I depend on you getting me through every night.

There’s nowhere on earth, that I need to be.

Than having you, care for me.

 

Chorus

I am waiting, for a cure from you

to give me back my life.

I am waiting, for a different choice

somehow I will survive.

I am waiting, for someone who

can help me stay alive.

I am waiting, for a cure from you

to help me save my life.

 

I am waiting, for a cure from you

to give me back my life.

I am waiting, for a different choice

somehow I will survive.

I am waiting, for someone who

can help me stay alive.

I am waiting, for a cure from you

to help me save my life.
