Still Waiting by J G Harding

Capo 3rd

What are we going to do?
Stripping the colour from life as we bleach our bones,
Anticipating heart attacks.
What are we going to do?
Dragging ourselves into debt as we build our homes,
Well never get the money back.

Oh, life, where did you go wrong?
I’m singin,
Oh life,
Where’s my happy song?
I’ve waited so long.

I am going to the east,
Mile by mile it’s nearer my reach,
And the world is heading west,
Dollar for dollar it’s all for the best.

Where are we going today?
Wherever I go if I’m moving im standing still,
Theres never time for turning back.
What is there still left to say?
No sooner the words leave your mouth,
Than the meanings changed,
And ink just makes your paper black.

Oh, life, where did you go wrong?
I’m singin,
Oh life,
Where’s my happy song?
I’ve waited so long.

I am going to the east,
Mile by mile it’s nearer my reach,
And the world is heading west,
Dollar for dollar it’s all for the best.

It’s difficult to not lose hope,
When I’m left waiting here,
It’s difficult to not lose hope,
But I’m still waiting here.
It’s difficult to not lose hope,
When I’m left waiting here,
It’s difficult to not lose hope,
But I’m still waiting here.
