“How much of human life is lost in waiting.”
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Lyrics - Waiting For Life

A stranger in white
In a car
Going somewhere
Going far...
How it must feel to go racing
Wherever you please
Flying as free as a bird
With his tail in the breeze
Even the fish in the sea
Must be longing to fly
Catching a glimpse of a stranger
In white racing by
Oh, Gods
Oh, Gods
Are you there?
What can I do to get you to look down
And give in?
Oh, Gods
Oh, Gods
Hear my prayer
I'm here in the field
With my feet on the ground
And my fate in the air
Waiting for life to begin

Ooh la ooh la ooh la ooh la
Ooh la ooh la ooh la ooh la

Mama's contented and Tonton
Accepts what he gets
Ooh la ooh la ooh la ooh la
Happy for tea in their cups
And no holes in their nets
Ooh la ooh la ooh la ooh la
Happy to have what they have
And to stay where they are

Ooh la ooh la ooh la ooh la
They never even look up
At the sound of a car!
A stranger!
Racing down the beach
Racing to places
I was meant to reach
My stranger
One day you'll arrive
The car will stop
And in I'll hop
And off we'll drive...We'll drive!
Oh, gods
Oh, gods
Please, be there
Don't you remember
Your little Ti Moune from the tree
Wake up!
Look down!
Hear my prayer
Don't single me out
And then forget me...

Oh gods, oh gods
Let me fly
Oh oh oh
Send me to places
No one before me has been
Ooh la ooh la ooh la
You spared my life
Show me why
Oh oh oh
You get me to rise
Like a fish to the bait
And tell me to wait
Well, I'm waiting...
Waiting
Waiting for
Life to
Begin!

Waiting for
Life to
Begin!
One small
Girl
