Wait for Me Lyrics
Time is running out for the magic pair
I know you gave the best that you have
But one more chance
couldn't be all that hard to bear.
Wait for me please
Wait for me
Alright, I guess
that's more than I should...

I believe it's a song written from Daryl Hall to His girlfriend Sarah Allen. Because he has been away on tour for so long. But she is there and he is asking her to wait for him after the concert.

I imagine it's at a high school reunion, and he's blowing his chance to rekindle an old flame. At least that the image I have, and what I see when I hear it.

For me, it’s a man who’s asking for another chance after already having messed up in the past. He loves me but is asking to wait for me while he deals with personal problems and depression so that he can come back whole and love me properly.

Great song. Especially the live version. I think it's about a man whose wife is dying. It's clear from the beginning that they were a "pair". However, references to "light fading fast" and "one more chance" reveal a sudden urgency to let her know how much he loves her before she dies. To let her know is "more than he should ask". Brilliant writing.

Great love song ... Two people at the end and he feels as if she does not know how much she does mean to him. One last chance to get on same page and make it worse ... Wait for me ...

Daryl wrote the song about his past relationship that was failing. He did not know when he got home from touring if she was still going to be there
