Waiting On A Sign Lyrics

by Ben Harper

I didn't come here trying to find forgiveness
I didn't come here looking for a fix
I didn't come here in hopes of seeing
How the un-forsaken get their kicks

It's like a cry for help nobody hears
Close as you can get but I'm still nowhere near

Now I'm just down here waiting on a sign
I'm running out of time
I'm here waiting on a sign, look

Mother's only happy as her saddest child
To learn to live without can take a while
And it's a long way back to anywhere
And it's not too late, oh but it's getting there

It like a cry for help that nobody hears
Close as you can get but I'm still nowhere near

I'm just here waiting on your sign
I'm running out of time
I'm waiting, waiting on a sign

So you blow a veil of smoke
To protect yourself from the joke
Look around this room
And say, "Man, I don't belong here"

So many sides to the truth
But only one side to a fact
What will we do
With what we can't take back?

Like a cry, like a cry for help that nobody hears
Close as you can get but I'm still nowhere near

I'm just down here waiting on a sign
I'm running, I'm running out of time
I'm waiting on a sign
Oh, I'm waiting on a sign

I'm just, got me here waiting on a sign
I'm just waiting on a sign
I'm just waiting on a sign
Just waiting on a sign
