The Waiting Line //


How could I not remember you? / That pretty smile, those laughing eyes / I couldn't help but notice this little child of five / Who doesn't believe in me / I sold out this great life for mere religion / But I'm here tearing up my indecision / I thought I had so much to offer you / But now I'm on my knees

(I hear there's) Fire in our sacred land / (I fear that) We're standing round with empty hands / (Hear me now) I'm waiting for something more

Tonight there's terror in the air / A bitter breeze that stalks her dreams / She's begging for an answer / The cherished lives it takes / Sold out - there's no more food his eyes he shields / As he stares at soldiers burning down the fields / It's far too complicated for one man / With only soul and love

(I hear there's) Fire in our sacred land / (I fear that) We're standing round with empty hands / (Hear me now) I'm waiting for something more

I felt bad, so I sent a couple of pence / If you add it all together then it makes a bit of sense / You ain't got pounds except the water on your head / Walk a mile on your bare soles; earth hot coals, thirst, pot holes; / I got sandals but lost soul / Waiting in line at a red cross so / We're handed daily bread when we never would have got loaves / Alone, with a million without a home.

(And I'm waiting) I'm waiting for something more / (I'm waiting) Waiting for something / A time for you and I / When man cannot divide / When love can't be denied

And still those eyes are laughing / A reckless joy abounding grace / You've seen such brutal hatred / How did you ever learn to love? / And I'm here, the lucky one who knew his father / I reach out but my reach can't stretch much farther / I guess we all need a saving love to find our soul / To find our love / And now we all need a saving one / To find our soul and love
