John Mayer, “Waiting on the world to change”

 

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 is 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) / Waiting on the world to change / We keep on waiting (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) / 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 / When you trust your television / What you get is what you got / Cuz’ when they own the information ooohhh / They can bend it all they want

So while we’re waiting (waiting) / Waiting on the world to change / We keep on waiting (waiting) / Waiting on the world to change / It’s not that we don’t care / We just know that the pot ain’t fair / So we keep waiting (waiting) / Waiting on the world to change

We’re still waiting (waiting) / Waiting on the world to change / We keep on waiting (waiting) / Waiting on the world to change / One day our generation / Is gonna rule the population / So we keep on waiting (waiting) / Waiting on the world to change / Know we keep on waiting (waiting) / Waiting on the world to change / We keep on waiting (waiting) / Waiting on the world to change…
