Waiting on the World to Change
John Mayer Lyrics


One, two
One, two, three

Me and all my friends
We're all misunderstood
They say we stand for nothing and
There's no way we ever could
Now we see everything that's going wrong
With the world and those who lead it
We just feel like we don't have the means
To rise above and beat it

So we keep waiting (waiting)
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting (waiting)
Waiting on the world to change

It's hard to beat the system
When we're standing at a distance
So we keep waiting on (waiting)
Waiting on the world to change

Now if we had the power
To bring our neighbors home from war
They woulda never missed a Christmas
No more ribbons on their door
And when you trust your television
What you get is what you got
'Cause when they own the information, oh
They can bend it all they want

That's why we're waiting (waiting)
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting (waiting)
Waiting on the world to change

It's not that we don't care
We just know that the fight ain't fair
So we keep on waiting (waiting)
Waiting on the world to change

And we're still waiting (waiting)
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting (waiting)
Waiting on the world to change

One day our generation
Is gonna rule the population
So we keep on waiting (waiting)
Waiting on the world to change
Now I keep on waiting (waiting)
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting (waiting)
We're waiting on the world to change
Waiting on the world to change
Waiting on the world to change
Waiting on the world to change

Never Say

Totally DISAGREE!

Genesis 6:5 says God hated how evil man's thoughts were & couldn't take it.....So he was going to blot the world out! But then there was Noah

Awe! Why?

No one knows the whole story!

Half the bible ain't TRUE but who wrote it?

Man!

Sorry......this world is Satan Damned to hell sin cursed earth! Where about half the world were ALWAYS victim's
Unfortunately! Not God's fault! Oh yeah he made the world & Jesus knows that mankind is not so kind at all......We killed him! The only essence of mankind is in Ecclesiastes .....God tested man to be but beast's.......Man disappears in the end of time! Do not think that God is slow his waiting for his last one to repent then he comes he comes back as a their in the night! Why? We killed him the 1st time!

Then he burns the earth & creates a new heaven & earth....

.1 day is as 1000 years & 1000 years as 1 day that phrase comes 1st found in 2nd Peter the 3rd chapter

So do you live on Satan Damned to hell sin cursed earth where the WORST people do whatever they want? YES! Child molester's/ rapist's & killers are barely caught or people pay them off ! The notorious lieing court's that don't barely do any good!😠Sorry I had a rotten life!
Who's fault is it?
God? He created me! I was a victim my whole life & this world with all it's lies makes me 🤮🤮🤮 vomit!

@Aaron Mahanga There is the Problem. People always looking for others to undo the mess they have done to this Planet. aaron......GROW UP!! No one is coming to save your stupid ass if you dont save it yourself. Humans are like stupid children being told to clean their rooms. GROW UP. Help change the world yourself. Take some responsibility for your Planet and for your life.

Aaron Mahanga

Yes I'm still waiting, I guess though some ones going to change the world for the good👍

Kim Thomas
