Just Wait
Blues Traveler Lyrics


If ever you are feeling like you're tired
And all your uphill struggles leave you headed downhill
If you realize your wildest dreams can hurt you
And your appetite for pain has drinken it's fill

I ask of you a very simple question
Did you think for one minute that you are alone
And is your suffering a privilege you share only
Or did you think that everybody else feels completely at home
Just wait
Just wait
Just wait
And it will come

If you think I've given up on you you're crazy
And if you think I don't love you well then you're just wrong
In time you just might take to feeling better
Time is the beauty of the road being long

I know that now you feel no consolation
But maybe if I told you and informed you out loud
I say this without fear of hesitation
I can honestly tell you that you make me proud

Just wait
Just wait
Just wait
And it will come
Just wait
Just wait
Just wait
And it will come

If anything I might have just said has helped you
If anything I might have just said helped you just carry on
Your rise uphill may no longer seem a struggle
And your appetite for pain may all but be gone

I hope for you and cannot stop at hoping
Until that smile has once again returned to your face
There's no such thing as a failure who keeps trying
Coasting to the bottom is the only disgrace

Just wait
Just wait
Just wait
And it will come
Just wait
Just wait
Just wait
And it will come
Just wait
Just wait
Just wait
And it will come

Ive been using this song for years now to cope with my anxiety and depression. When life gets hard and i just want to end it all. I have a playlist, it makes me cry my eyes out but when its over... I feel new again. Music is my life, without it I couldn't live on this earth. Beautiful people with minds more beautiful then my own are the reason to celebrate life. Thank You John C. Popper. Your voice has coached me out of the hell in my head more than a few times.

This. Just, THIS. Been loving this song since it debuted 1993 when I was 14 years old, and it still has the ability to give me that second wind.

Jasha Adler This lyric is the one I always carry with me. I haven't listened to the song in years but always remember this when anyone tells me they are a failure!
Played this over and over in 1996 when I was going through some hard shit. Good to hear it again today and still as powerful.

Rugged Lemmings

Wow...two decades later and this song still gives me chills.
