Waiting for the Wind

Sitting in the morning just waking up on my side of the world today I turn on the news see if anyone has anything good to say Stock markets falling and another landslide while the politicians try to deny Global warming and more killer storms and another thousand people die and the advertiser says I’d be happy if I bought bigger car you know I’ve got my sails out...and I’m waiting for the winds to blow I got my sails out...and I’m waiting for the winds to blow. Sometimes I think the world’s gone mad and I can’t stand to hear the pain One place burning in holy fire and another in a deluge of rain Sometimes I think that hatred and war is the only way we know how to be And I want to sail away,..in a world made for you and me Sometimes I wonder at the pace of it all, where’s everybody trying to go I got my sails out...and I’m waiting for the winds to blow. I got my sails out...and I’m waiting for the winds to blow. Why can’t we see the beauty of it all in the sun rising every day Life holding on to the sides of mountains and the waters rushing into the bay Why can’t we live as if nothing on earth mattered more that the love that we bring I want to sail away,.. and become part of everything Why can’t we care just a little bit more, maybe let a little kindness show I got my sails out...and I’m waiting for the winds to blow. I got my sails out...and I’m waiting for the winds to blow.
