    Lyrics »

Yes, I know you
Sometime she talks to him
Sometimes when she's only dreaming
Then when she wakes up
Somehow she still believes him

Yes, I know you
Tho we've been out of touch
Yes, I know you
To be continued, it's too much baby

I can't wait...I can't wait
Well, I've got to know when I can see you again, now baby
I can't wait...I can't wait
Am I wasting my time while you make up your mind
Well, I can't wait...I can't wait
Yes, I know you
Tho we've been out of touch
I can't wait...I can't wait
What can I do when I'm crazy for you

She wonders how many more hours
Her heart will feel broken
In secret she says she needs to see him
But no words are spoken

She dances around in a circle
Well she's got that feeling now
Blame it on something at first sight
Put the blame on me if you want to
To be continued

I can't wait...I can't wait
Am I wasting my time while you make up your mind
Well, I can't wait...I can't wait
I got to know when I can see you again
Well, I can't wait...I can't wait

I can't wait...I can't wait
I can't wait...I can't wait
(How will we feel 20 years from now)

(C) 1985 Welsh Witch Music - (BMI) admin. by Warner-Tamerlane Publishing Corp., Future Furniture Music - (ASCAP) All Rights Reserved. Stevie Nicks: "Inspired by Rick Nowels. I think this was about the most exciting song that I had ever heard. My friend, Rick, whom I had known since I was eighteen and he was thirteen, brougnt over this track with this incredible percussion thing, and gave it to me asking me if I would listen to it and consider writing a song for it...I listened to the song once, and pretended not to be that knocked out, but the second Rick left, I ran to my little recording studio and wrote 'I Can't Wait.' It took all night, and I think it is all about how electric I felt about this music...And that night, that SATURDAY night, Rick and I went into a BIG studio and recorded it. I sang it only once, and have never sung it since in the studio. Some vocals are magic and simply not able to beat. So I let go of it, as new to me as it was; but you know, now when I hear it on the radio, this incredible feeling comes over me, like something really incredible is about to happen... To understand this song, you sort of have to let yourself go a little crazy...love is blind, it never works out...but you just have to have it...I can't wait...."
