Waiting For Life Lyrics


by Once on This Island Cast. From Once on This Island.


[TI MOUNE]
A stranger in white
In a car
Going somewhere
Going far...
How it must feel to go racing
Wherever you please
Flying as free as a bird
With his tail in the breeze
Even the fish in the sea
Must be longing to fly
Catching a glimpse of a stranger
In white racing by

Oh, Gods
Oh, Gods
Are you there?
What can I do to get you to look down
And give in?
Oh, Gods
Oh, Gods
Hear my prayer
I'm here in the field
With my feet on the ground
And my fate in the air
Waiting for life to begin

[PEASANTS]
Ooh la ooh la ooh la ooh la
Ooh la ooh la ooh la ooh la

[TI MOUNE]
Mama's contented and Tonton
Accepts what he gets

[PEASANTS]
Ooh la ooh la ooh la ooh la

[TI MOUNE]
Happy for tea in their cups
And no holes in their nets

[PEASANTS]
Ooh la ooh la ooh la ooh la

[TIMOUNE]
Happy to have what they have
And to stay where they are

[PEASANTS]
Ooh la ooh la ooh la ooh la

[TI MOUNE]
They never even look up
At the sound of a car!

A stranger!
Racing down the beach
Racing to places
I was meant to reach
My stranger
One day you'll arrive
The car will stop
And in I'll hop
And off we'll drive...We'll drive!

Oh, gods
Oh, gods
Please, be there
Don't you remember
Your little Ti Moune from the tree
Wake up!
Look down!
Hear my prayer
Don't single me out
And then forget me...

Oh gods, oh gods
Let me fly

[PEASANTS]
Oh oh oh

[TIMOUNE]
Send me to places
No one before me has been

[PEASANTS]
Ooh la ooh la ooh la

[TI MOUNE]
You spared my life
Show me why

[PEASANTS]
Oh oh oh

[TI MOUNE]
You get me to rise
Like a fish to the bait
And tell me to wait
Well, I'm waiting...

[PEASANTS]
Waiting

[TI MOUNE]
Waitng for
Life to
Begin!
[MEN]
One small
Girl
[WOMEN]
One small
Girl
[TI MOUNE]
Waiting for
Life to
Begin!
[MEN]
One small
Girl
[WOMEN]
One small
Girl
