Lyrics

What Are We Waiting For -
words and music by Scott Jackson

The Sun might explode
And the heaven's might fall
We'll be left standing
With nothing at all

What if those Prophets were right
And the Four Horsemen rode
And the Devil he gathered
All the wandering souls
Today is a life boat
That we let drift away

What are we waiting for
What are we waiting for
Is it something that's solid
Something that keeps me



Holding out for more
What are we waiting for
Is it something that's magic
Something heroic
That's gonna make us soar

The Missiles might fly
In our beautiful blue
There would be nothing
Anyone could do

The Sun might not rise
And the moon might not glow

What is the purpose
When it comes to the surface
How will we know

Today is a life boat
That we let drift away

What are we waiting for
What are we waiting for
Is it something that's solid
Something that keeps me
Holding out for more
What are we waiting for
Is it something that's magic
Something heroic
That's gonna make us soar

The Sun might explode
In our beautiful blue
I hope I'm there watching
Right beside you
