“So open up your morning light
and say a little prayer for I
you know that if we are to stay alive
then 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 stinging
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, sorry?

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 pass by and now he has granddaughters

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


Oh, 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 breathe a little more deeply my love
all we have is this 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 I
you know that if we are to stay alive
and see the peace in every eye

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…

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, sorry?”.

Citazioni.

I Don’t Want to Wait is a song written, performed and produced by Paula Cole. It was Cole’s second single from her album This Fire and later served as the opening theme for the TV series Dawson’s Creek. The single was #10 on the 1998 Hot 100 Singles on the Billboard year end summary. The single spent the most consecutive weeks in the Top 50 without cracking the Top 10, just missing out at #11. This single, with a 56 week-long run, is among the list of the 32 songs in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 to have had a chart run longer than 50 weeks. VH1 ranked it as one of the 100 Greatest Songs of the 90s at #81.
The music video for the song was directed by Mark Seliger and Fred Woodward. It was one of Cole’s first videos, and was based on the concept of a woman who was immortal and had lovers in different time periods, all of whom died. The cut of the video was originally in chronological order, but for unknown reasons, a cut that was out of order was more frequently aired which led to the directors taking their name off the video”.
