Paula Cole Band - I Don't Want To Wait Lyrics


So open up your morning light

And say a little prayer for I

You know that if we are to stay alive

And see the peace in every eye



She had two babies, one was six months, one was three

In the war of forty four

Everytime phone ring, every heartbeat stinging

When she thought it was God calling her

Oh, would her son grow to know his father?



I don't want to wait for our lives to be over

I want to know, right now, what will it be

I don't want to wait for our lives to be over

Will it be yes or will it be sorry?



He showed up all wet on the rainy front step

Wearing shrapnel in his skin

And the war he saw lives inside him still

It's so hard to be gentle and warm

The years pass by and now he has granddaughters



I don't want to wait for our lives to be over

I want to know, right now, what will it be

I don't want to wait for our lives to be over

Will it be yes or will it be?



Oh, so you look at me from across the room

You're wearing your anguish again

Believe me, I know the feeling

It sucks you into the jaws of anger



Oh, so breathe a little more deeply, my love

All we have is this very moment

And I don't want to do what his father and his father and his father did

I want to be here now



So open up your morning light

And say a little prayer for I

You know that if we are to stay alive

And see the peace in every eye



I don't want to wait for our lives to be over

I want to know, right now, what will it be

I don't want to wait for our lives to be over

Will it be yes or will it be?



I don't want to wait for our lives to be over

I want to know, right now, what will it be

I don't want to wait for our lives to be over

Will it be yes or will it be sorry?



So open up your morning light

And say a little prayer for I

You know that if we are to stay alive

And see the love in every eye
