i will be ready

Written By: eric fontana

will you be the one i've waited for?
will you be my blessing?
will you show me what i'm really worth?
i will be ready for it
you will come in like a hurricane
you will surely wreck me
but you'll rebuild what you take away
and i will be ready for it
-i don't know if you'll come to stay
i don't know if my heart will bleed
but i know that the truth
sometimes hurts
and i will be ready for it-
will be the one you waited for ?
will be your blessing ?
will show you what you're really worth?
and i will be ready for it
i will come on like a hurricane
i will surely wreck you
but i'll rebuild what i take away
and i will be ready for it
i know that i will be ready for it
