i was a young man and impatient
i wouldn’t wait
i wanted to hold the whole world in the palm of my hand
i couldn’t wait
all i was handed, i took for granted
i wouldn’t wait
nothing ever lived up to the life that i’d planned
i couldn’t wait


i had the world in the palm of my hand
i let it slip through my fingers
nothing goes how you plan so i figure
i’ll learn to wait


now i’m older but no wiser
i still don’t wait
no i don’t take my time, and i won’t compromise
i won’t wait
all my friends and all my family
well they can wait
they seem happy and i know i can be
if i just wait


so i’m lost now, but i know somehow
if i wait
i’ve always survived, and i’ve always been found
so i’ll wait
cause i’ve known darkness and i’ve known sickness
i know i can wait
oh i’ll wait for redemption and i’ll wait for forgiveness
i’ll wait
