Jonny Diaz — “What I’m Waiting For”

I’m sorry for taking so long to post!  I’ve been super busy in these past few days, but tomorrow I’ll be free to write a real post again!  Come back and check sometime tomorrow around lunch for a new post 🙂

As for now, I’m off to study for Spanish and Calculus placement tests.  Whoo hoo!  I leave you now with a new favorite song and it’s lyrics.  It’s Jonny Diaz, and he has a sound really similar to Jason Mraz and Dave Barnes.  I hope you like it!

“What I’m Waiting For” — Jonny Diaz

FORTY DAYS WITH A HEART LIKE A STONE

FORTY NIGHTS FEELING COLD AND ALONE

LIKE A STRANGER CAUSE IT’S BEEN SO LONG

IT’S NOT YOU BUT IT’S ME WHO’S GONE

TRY TO PRAY BOW MY HEAD BUT LIFE GETS IN THE WAY
AND I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO SAY
WHAT I’D GIVE FOR A CHANGE
HOW LONG WILL IT BE THIS WAY

THIS COMPLACENCY IS WEARING ON ME
ALL MY PASSIONS TURNED TO APATHY
I COULD GET UP AND FOLLOW YOU
AND FIND MY FAITH FROM BEFORE
DON’T KNOW WHAT I’M WAITING FOR

I HAVE DONE WHAT I THOUGHT I SHOULD
ALL THESE YEARS THAT I’VE SPENT SERVING YOU
TELL ME HOW DID I END UP LIKE THIS
WITH DOUBT IN MY HEART AND MY HANDS IN A FIST

MAYBE YOU SHINING WHITE OR A BLOOD RED SUN
MAYBE SOME OTHER SIGN THAT MAY NEVER COME
MAYBE I MUST BELIEVE BEFORE I CAN SEE
WHAT I’M WAITING FOR
