Waitin' for You is a song by Demi Lovato which appears as the seventh track on her fifth album, Confident.

Background

Demi released a video on her official YouTube account on October 15, 2015 explaining the meaning behind "Waitin' for You".

Critical Reception

ANDPOP writer Merna Jibrail stated: "If there’s a track off the album that had us saying “YAAS,” it’s this one. It sets a very assertive mood — if that makes any sense. We feel confident listening to this song and LA rapper Sirah’s verse does the killer track so much justice. We felt the power within Sirah’s voice — these two need to collaborate on everything." [1]

Music Video

The music video was released on October 22, 2015.

Lyrics

Demi Lovato:
You said that you'd never hurt me
Be the band-aid when I bleed
But I guess that that band-aid was all made of paper
Cause you never stuck to me
And you say that you conquered the lion
Without even tryin'
But she only gets stronger
She only bites harder and I only die fighting

You can run, you can run
But you know that I know just what you've done
You can run, you can run
But save those words for one on one

So when the lights go down
And the sun hits ground
You should know that I won't back down (I'll be waitin' for you)
Knuckles out
And the guard in my mouth
When you're hungry for the next round (I'll be waitin' for you)
I'll be waitin' for you
I'll be waitin' for you

Yeah, don't take things too personal
But you made shit personal
Talkin' 'bout my bad habits
Man, fuck my bad habits
Don't act like you got none

You can run, you can run
But you know that I know just what you've done
You can run, you can run
But save those words for one on one

So when the lights go down
And the sun hits ground
You should know that I won't back down (I'll be waitin' for you)
Knuckles out
And the guard in my mouth
When you're hungry for the next round (I'll be waitin' for you)
I'll be waitin' for you
I'll be waitin' for you

Sirah:
Got my name in your mouth, forgive me when I knock it out
I love it when you talk about me just cause you don't know yourself
My jabs go go for broke, your teeth is on the floor
Thirty million people watchin', do you still want more?
Say gracious, gon' get it, I am winnin' but you isn't
Call your dentist cause I meant this, I don't see no competition
Goin' wild, Mikey Tyson, born a fighter, I will triumph
Bitch I thought you knew I was comin' for your title

Demi Lovato:
So when the lights go down
And the sun hits ground
You should know that I won't back down (I'll be waitin' for you)
Knuckles out
And the guard in my mouth
When you're hungry for the next round (I'll be waitin' for you)
I'll be waitin' for you
I'll be waitin', I'll be waitin' for you
I'll be waitin' for you
