I Don't Want To Wait

And say a little prayer for right

In the war of '44...
Every telephone ring, every heartbeat stinging
When she thought it was God calling her
Oh, would her son grow to know his father?

[CHORUS:]
I don't want to wait for our lives to be over,
I want to know right now, what will it be?
I don't want to wait for our lives to be over,
Will it be yes or will it be...sorry?

Wearing shrapnel in his skin
And the war he saw lives inside him still,

I want to know right now, what will it be?
I don't want to wait for our lives to be over,
Will it be yes or will it be...sorry?

doo doo

So open up your morning light,
And say a little prayer for right
You know that if we are to stay alive
Then see the peace in every eye...
