Waiting

All our lives we are waiting. Waiting for an upload, waiting for a download. Waiting in a line. Waiting for the bus, train, plane. Waiting for Mom to collect us from school. Waiting for something to begin, or end. Waiting for crops to grow. Waiting for rain. Waiting for sunshine. Waiting for a green light. waiting for the day to end, or begin. Waiting for true love. waiting for a movie to start. Waiting for the show to begin. Waiting for the lousy support band to go away. Waiting for something to happen. Waiting for a miracle. Waiting for a change.

~ Peter Hammill – Time For A Change ~

Time for a change:
I felt bad, things looked strange.
Home, home on the range…
Yes, it’s time for a change.

“Well, young man, when you grow up
What do you want to be?”
“Please, sir, if that’s alright
I’d really rather like to learn how to be me.”

Switch on the light,
Getting late, almost night.
A shilling puts you right,
You can switch off the night.

The world was looking stretched and tight,
It’s an overblown balloon.
I’ve got the feeling something big
Has got to happen soon.

Oh, time for a change,
Out of reach, out of range.
Go and tell Doctor Strange
That it’s time for a change.

Time for a change,
Time for a change.
