Paula Cole I Don't Want to Wait Lyrics

Last updated: 12/27/2013 07:03:42 AM

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

She had two babies
One was six months one was three
In the war of '44
Every telephone ring
Every heartbeat sting
When she thought it was God calling her
Oh would her son grow to know his father


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

He showed up all wet
On the rainy front step
Wearing shrapnel in his skin
And the war he saw
Lives inside him still
It's so hard to be gentle and warm
The years passed by and now
He had granddaughters


Oh so you look at me
From across the room
You're wearing your anguish again
Believe me, I know the feeling
It sucks you into the jaws of anger
Oh, so dig a little more deeply,
All we have is the very moment
And I don't want to do what
His father and his father and his father did
I want to be here now

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

Chorus (2 times)

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

This song is beautiful, and way, way ahead of its time. It deals with a woman who truly loves her husband who is suffering the physical wounds received in 1944 and emotional scars of war and her struggle to keep their family and happier times alive, and preserve the warmth of family. Truly a brilliant song.

Touching | Reviewer: Rajesh | 10/28/11

Just starting up my first job in nj in mid nineties
- I used to listen this song but did not understand lyrics except for few phrases and words. In fact I started looking for "I don't want to wait" and finally corrected and found on iTunes. I am loving this song even more after knowing lyrics - gives me goose bumps.

totally love the song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/21/09

everytime i hear this song, it reminds me of my childhood. particularly watching Dawson' s Creek. this song is tremendously great. the lyrics of the song makes you a bit emotional. the message of the song brings hope to everyone who listens to it. i really love this song ever since. (^^,)

Spirit n just like it | Reviewer: Da castle | 1/7/09

Everything in the world has a spirit. So does this song, i found a strong spirit on it. Most of you said it remembered u to the dawson's creek. But not for me, my friend played this song in one afternoon after school. When the first time i heard it, i think this a good song and i just like it

ok so it's about love | Reviewer: elle | 10/13/08

but doesn't this song remind anyone of the war? that's the part that makes me sad.. i mean i'm 17 but my poppa was in the war i can only imagine what it would be like when they got back "and the war he saw, lives inside him still, it's so hard to be gentle and warm" it must've been so hard.

Love's sweet as honey & bitter as hell | Reviewer: kenny | 8/7/08

In the midst of everyday life, running all the time to meet the 2 ends, we should all take a pause and look around. Everything comes and goes. Don't look at the past and think that we really screwed things up. No, be here now. Live the moment. Praise and honour each other while we are still alive and not wait for a memorial ceremony when we're dead. Live now.

When i was younger i used to watch Dawons creek,
i used to have the biggest crush on the blonde guy dawson, no idea what his real name is, and didnt used to like the other guys XD I also thought katie holmes was so pretty.
Hearing this song really brings back memories for me, of how life used to be and how much it has changed for me.

aching beautiful. | Reviewer: angela | 6/27/08

i dont wanna wait for our lives to be over.. what a strong and true line, one take so much things for granted, so much that one, gets mad, yells, complain, etc, not knowing.. or acepting that every single thing passes, including, our lifes.
amazing song.

childhood | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/23/08

this song reminds me of my childhood in perth-australia,,

even though i was never allowed to watch the TV series(dawsons creek),i always listen to this song before the show starts...happy moments..

This song is deeper than Dawsons Creek! | Reviewer: Sandra Tapia | 1/22/08

We need to embrace every single moment that God has given us! Life is hard enough as it is, without us adding our negative imput! Enjoy each breath that we take! Stop living in the past!!!!! With Gods grace we are free from all this junk! May God reach every ear that hears this song. May God bless the writer and singer!!! It's absolutely spiritual!!!!!!!!!!!

Memories | Reviewer: Joey potter | 12/29/07

This song makes me remember when my sister and I would sit on the couch and watch Dawson's Creek.

I makes me want to cry.

i dont understand | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/27/07

i love this song and i love dawson´s creek but i do not understand what does this has to do with the series i love the song but i think that they could have chosen a better song for the show

this song change my life | Reviewer: in love in seattle | 12/24/07

my girlfriend and i always email each other weird songs and i sent her this song over and over and when i asked for her hand in marriage one night while waiting on a cab a car pulled up to the light next to us and this song was blaring on the radio the light stayed red just long enough for it to seem like a movie scene and so i said baby i don't want to wait for our lives to be over i wanna do this now and she jumped into my arms and we made out until the light changed and we thought it was kinda funny afterwards when we thought about it i think this song will be our first dance song on may 24 2008 thnx paula
