Standing on the edge of the truth
Looking out at the view of all you used to believe
From where you are you can see you're far away from home

Echoes of the life you once knew
Call out to you from across the divide
And you know it's time to step back over the line

But you're waiting for lightning
A sign that it's time for a change
And you're listening for thunder
While he quietly whispers your name
(Whispers your name)

Night falls and the curtain goes down
No one's around, it's just you and the truth
As you lie in wait for a feeling to take you by storm

Somewhere in the depths of your heart
(Somewhere in your heart)
Where it's empty and dark, there's a flicker of light
And the spirit calls, but do you notice at all

Are you waiting for lightning
A sign that it's time for a change
And you're listening for thunder
While he quietly whispers your name

But the sign and the word has already been given
And now it's by faith, we must look and we must listen

Instead of waiting for lightning
A sign that it's time for a change
(Listening for thunder)
Are you listining 'cause he quietly whispers your name
(Whispers your name)
Ooh, don't wait
(Waiting for lightning)
Don't wait
