What Are You Waiting For?

Bumped and Updated: With "Change" the keyword of the Democratic march to the White House this song might make a good "theme" for Obama's campaign.

What Are You Waiting For?
Published: Oct 7, 07 09:00 AM

I really like a particular tune by John Mayer, and when I searched for the song on YouTube I was lucky enough to come across the following music video created by the Community Christian Church in Naperville, Illinois. Great song, great message -- I hope you agree. The song is titled "Waiting on the World to Change" and I've copied the lyrics below.

Lyrics: 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 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

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
