LYRICS:


Verse 1.
Life comes in seasons
Seasons come with time
Time has it’s own phases
And colours that interfere with mine
So many questions
Puzzles confuse my mind
But in the middle of all the twists and turns and grey spaces
I have learnt a thing that’s wise
(And it is that…)

Chorus:

If it hasn’t worked
If it hasn’t changed
If it hasn’t turned out like I hoped
I’ll just wait a li’l while (Wait a li’l while)

If it hasn’t worked
If time’s running out and I’m afraid
Instead of giving into fear, shame, pain and despair
I’ll just wait a li’l while

Verse 2.

He has a dream
And his hopes are so high
That his desires will some day be fulfilled
And his plans will fall in line
We pray for peace
And we’re hoping for a light
That will shine through every darkness, sickness and hurt
And bring life to our land

Chorus

Chant:

Oh I’ll wait (Wait)… Wait (Wait)…
Wait a li’l while…
I’ll just wait (Wait) … Oh wait (Wait)…
Wait a li’l while.

Repeat chant

Bridge:

While we wait
Let the planter plant a seed
Let the doctor offer skill
Let the Preacher say a Word
And the people hold in faith
Let the mother say a prayer
Let the father hold the home
Till we all arise together and see…

Reprise:

How things are turning
Everything is changing
It’s all working together
It’s working together
Cause we waited a while
Now things are turning
I declare that everything is changing
It’s all working together
It’s working together
I’m glad I waited a while.

Chant:

Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Wait (Wait) …
Just wait (Wait)… Yes…
Wait a li’l while
Your wait could be an hour or two
It could be a month, a year or more
Wait a li’l while

Oh just wait (Wait)…
Just wait (Wait)…
Wait a li’l while

There’s a light at the end of the tunnel (Wait)…
A silver lining in your sky (Wait)
Just wait a li’l while.
