JOHN MAYER


Waiting On The World To Change Lyrics

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)
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

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)
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

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

No, 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

when they own the information, oh They can bend it all they want. this song is about the corrupt government and united nations. They own the media and corporations. war is about money and he is right.

Yes, each of us has an impact, but there is so much more that impacts us. Finding peace between a ready life and acceptance of the wider world takes time. Thx JM

I didn't realize until recently how much this song matches my life. An outcast since I began school, I listen to this song constantly now, and find refuge within it. Love your songs, John Mayer!

the truth is,people are afraid of change.most people think it will cost billoins to make change,but it really only takes a few persons with purpose.this song shines some light on truth, we are waiting

Hippies never waited for the world to change - we got out there and did something about it. Mayer and his ilk can wait forever, but nothing will change until they do. Peace, brothers & sisters!
