Waiting for You is Canadian singer Gordon Lightfoot's 18th original album, released in 1993 on the Reprise Records label.

It was his first album since 1986 and represented a comeback of sorts, since he had stated that East of Midnight would be his last. The album is dedicated to his wife Elizabeth and son Miles. Lightfoot produced the album himself.

It is considered a return to form after his previous two or three outings which had moved more into the adult contemporary genre with greater use of electric guitar and synthesizers.
