"Waiting for this Moment" is a song from the musical adaptation of Tarzan. It is sung by Jane Porter as she is discovering new plants, as she is excited about it. After this number, she is attacked by a giant spider.


Jane: Carilla papaya
Bixa orelana
Callistemon linearis
Campanula incurva
I know you all.

Oh, I've been waiting for this moment.
Oh, it seems like all my life.
Here I am. My head is spinning
Because I'm finally living
The life that I dreamed.
It seems I've been waiting forever.

Mimulus aurantiacus
Pedicularis attolens
Bohemeria tricuspis
I always knew you'd be this beautiful.

Here and now, nothing matters.
Everything I wanted's here.
I feel at home. I've found my place.
All this beauty before me
Was out of my reach.
I never imagined such wonder.

Jane & Ensemble: All these friends I feel like
I know them, oh, so well.
And though it's strange, I feel like
They know me too.

Jane: There's something strangely intoxicating
And it's going to my head
That makes me feel, oh, so alive.
I could stay here forever
And never need more,
Embracing these wonders of nature.

Calliandra hustonia
Campanula barbata
Babiana rubrocyanea
Campanula fragilis
Callicanthus occidentallis
Gentiala saxosa

Jane & Ensemble: Oh, these friends, it seems like
I know them, oh, so well.
And I can see that,
Ooh, they want to know me too.

Jane: It's such a liberating feeling,
And it's happening to me.
I've never felt this glow inside.

Jane & Ensemble: New, exciting, inviting,
Wanting to play.
I cannot resist this temptation.
