I Don't Want to Wait

Paula Cole

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 '44

Every telephone 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 passed by and now

He has a granddaughter

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
