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, 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 live 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...

So 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

So breathe a little more deeply
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,
Then 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?

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 love in every eye...
