Well it's a strange, lonely world
and I'm doing the best that I can
I've been waiting all of my life for you
Well I've been in amongst the roses with the butterflies
flitting between the clouds in the blue, blue skies
hoping you would net me in your loving arms
I've been waiting all of my life
I've been searching for your love
hoping you would notice me
well I tried, but I can't earn my way back to you
I've been floating in my dreams
good and bad, nothing is what it seems
now only you are real to me, only you

"I took the disc home and put it on the CD player and I've got to tell you something. I don't think I can remember a time when I was so completely engrossed, impressed, entranced, I do believe that this song is very special indeed - from the CD Roadside Dreams by Ribbon Road, the beautiful voice of Brenda Heslop - I just think this is simply amazing."
"Songwriter Brenda Heslop has a secret, and she will whisper it in your ear: but a shocking secret, and its effect on you is much greater than you expect from a whisper. True, Brenda's secrets are in song, but the effect of her quiet vocals and harmonies with husband Geoff whacks you in the lughole and makes you pay attention."
