About this tab version
This is a simple way to play Lynn O'Brien's song on guitar, performed officially with her group Hummingbirds which has now broken up. She plays it on a Ukulele, and can be seen performing it live here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFE3u8XiEQM . The recording with Hummingbirds can be found on Spotify. A lot of the lyrics are sung in the silence between staring a new line of plucking- once the song is familiar one can easily match up the lyrics to the guitar. Also, a bridge consisting of 'oohs' can be inserted or taken out depending on preference, during which the guitar cycles through the chords of the verse, and plucking can be ad libbed. The song follows a casual 4/4 time signature with plucking straight eighth notes. This is a beautiful song that is fun to play and quick to learn. Was this info helpful? Yes No

FULL LYRICS


[Verse 1]

when the day is over, and the sun is sinking low, 
will you be my lover, and follow me home
to my house, where it's warm, and there's soup on the stove? we can eat it in bed,
fall asleep in our clothes. 
oh, i have been waiting all of my life, to fall in love with you.


[Verse 2]

when the night is over, and morning begins, 
will you be my lover, and let me sleep in
'till i'm ready to open my eyes into yours? and we're late and we're laughing 
as we rush out the door.
oh, i have been waiting all of my life, to fall behind with you.


[Verse 3]

when my life is over, and in the ground i lie, will you be my lover, and love me 'till i die?
will we travel the world, singing songs, making friends? will we write a new chapter,
will we read how it ends?
oh, i have been waiting all of my life-
i have been waiting all of my life-
i have been waiting all of my life to fall asleep with you.
to fall behind with you.
to fall in love with you.
