john mayer – waiting on the world to change (2008) lyrics

Loading...

[intro: barack obama]
there’s something happening when americans who are young in age and in spirit, who’ve never partic+p+ted in politics before, turn out in numbers we have never seen because they know in their hearts, that this time must be different

[verse 1: 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 evеrything that’s going wrong
with the world and those who lead it
wе just feel like we don’t have the means
to rise above and beat it

[chorus: john mayer]
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

[verse 2: john mayer]
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
but 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
[chorus: john mayer]
that’s why 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 fight ain’t fair
so we keep on waiting (waiting)
waiting on the world to change

[guitar solo]

[spoken: barack obama]
what gives me the most hope is the next generation + the young people whose attitudes and beliefs and the openness to change have already made history in this election

[chorus: john mayer]
and 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

[post+chorus: john mayer]
now we keep on waiting (waiting)
waiting on the world to change
we keep on waiting (waiting)
waiting on the world to change
waiting on the world to change
waiting on the world to change
waiting on the world to change
[outro: barack obama & crowd]
we want change
we want change
we want change
we want change
we want change
that’s what’s happening in america right now. change is what’s happening in america
