Waiting On The World To Change

Lyrics: John Mayer

me and all my friends
we’re all misunderstood
they say we stand for nothing and
there’s no way we ever could
now we see everything that’s going wrong
with the world and those who lead it
we just feel like we don’t have the means
to rise above and beat it

so we keep waiting
waiting on the world to change
we keep on waiting
waiting on the world to change

it’s hard to beat the system
when we’re standing at a distance
so we keep waiting
waiting on the world to change
now if we had the power
to bring our neighbors home from war
they would have never missed a Christmas
no more ribbons on their door
and when you trust your television
what you get is what you got
cause when they own the information, oh
they can bend it all they want

that’s why we’re waiting
waiting on the world to change
we keep on waiting
waiting on the world to change

it’s not that we don’t care,
we just know that the fight ain’t fair
so we keep on waiting
waiting on the world to change

and we’re still waiting
waiting on the world to change
we keep on waiting waiting on the world to change
one day our generation
is gonna rule the population
so we keep on waiting
waiting on the world to change

we keep on waiting
waiting on the world to change

I couldn’t have said it better myself. You see things around the world like wars, famine, nuclear weapons tests, scandals in the government, innocent murders, the list goes on…and we wonder “when is it going to stop” or “what can I do to fix it that will work”…do we wait for the world to change? do we band together? something has to give. I don’t have the answer but I, like the rest of you, am plagued by the problems.

I just told Jonathan the other day when we were listening to this song, that I can’t wait for our generation to take over. Mary as a Supreme Court Justice and someone else we know as President, we can fill up all positions!!! Then, the world will change, or at least our little part of it!!!

Awe, Mechelle, I love you and I love that song.. Supreme Court Justice seems a bit far off considering today I’m just trying to figure out what the hell an impleader is. I think you should run for office. I’ll run your campaign!

I dont think any of those things will stop for if they all did we would be in heaven. We def should work towards fixing them though the end will only be reached in death.
