From the album We’ve Been Waiting For You (The Parenthood Project).

Written by Carolyn Arends.

Let me hold you close, I know you’re frightened
Go ahead and cry, I understand
You were safe and you were warm
And then suddenly without a warning
Things began to change
It must have seemed so strange

To all at once be traveling a journey
All the way to this delivery room
But baby you are not alone
Your room is ready, let’s go home
You’re gonna like it here
Let me make it clear that

We’ve been waiting for you
We’re so glad you came
We’ve been looking forward
To showing you the place
There’s so much in store and
We’ve been waiting for you

I know it can take some getting used to
But this old world is where you’re meant to be
Life is something not to miss
The taste of ice cream, your first kiss
And when love takes your hand
You will understand why

We’ve been waiting for you
We’re so glad you came
We’ve been looking forward
To showing you the place
There’s so much in store and
We’ve been waiting for you

And watching you come into this world
Baby, you’ve made me believe
Another journey awaits us
So when I have to leave

I am pretty sure that I’ll be frightened
But even if I cry, please understand
I will know I’m not alone
When my room is ready I’ll go home
And when I reach the gate
I’m going to hear them saying

We’ve been waiting for you
We’re so glad you came
We’ve been looking forward
To showing you the place
There’s so much in store and
We’ve been waiting for you
