Wait is an album by Steelheart released October 25, 1996.

Because of both the lack of any original members contributions besides Michael Matijevic and the departure from Steelheart‘s classic sound, some people see this is more of a solo effort for Matijevic, rather than a new Steelheart album. However, with the release of Just a Taste Matijevic has since made it clear that he intends to use the Steelheart moniker for future releases.

Lyrics

1. Love Ain’t Easy

1. We All Die Young

Risk my soul, test my life
For my bread
Spend my time, lost in space
Am I dead?

Let the river flow
Through my callused hands
And take me from my own
The eyes of the damned

It makes my stomach turn
And it tears my flesh from the bone
How we turn a dream to stone

And we all die young

Tell me I know
I lived so afraid
And still we cry alone
With words left unsaid

Yeah, it makes my stomach turn
And it tears my flesh from bone to bone
How we turn a dream to stone

And we all die young
Yeah, we all die young

Yeah, we all die young
Yeah, we all die young
Yeah, we all die young
Yeah, we all die

2. Live 2 Die

3. Ahh Song

4. Electric Chair

5. Wait

Ain’t the world such a lonely place
All caught up, I fight the wait.
Am I the one that hides the pain, After all the fights the same.
Wait,
Wait, feel my heart it’s slowing down
Wait,
I’m waiting for love cause I need you now.

Heaven must try to steer us right
and though it’s sad, I lie,
the frozen sunshine and crowed rain, I switch reasons,
here it comes again.
Wait,
I’m waiting, feel my heart it’s slowing down
Wait,
I’m waiting for love cause I need you now
I need you now
(yes….so I reach for light……I feel…..nothing)
You know, You know love is hard to find, I don’t let me go
I try, I try
Wait
I’m waiting, feel my heart it’s slowing down
Wait,
I’m waiting for love, cause I need you now
I need you now
Oh, Oh, (feel my heart) It’s slowing down
Oh yea, Oh yea, I’m waiting for love
I need you now
Wait
