long time coming

We are all walking around
looking for a sign
Keeping our feet on the ground
but our eyes on the skies
We don’t want to be left
feeling stranded here
Wandering in an Exodus
Not going anywhere

It’s been a long time coming
And we’re taking a long time to go
Hoping for what we’ve never known
Believin something we’ve never seen
It’s been a long time coming
but these things happen very slow
But maybe the fruit’s not ripe
though my heart’s aching to go

There will come a moment
In the midst of a fateful day
A time everyone will regret
Things we do, and things we say

It’s been a long time coming
And we’re taking a long time to go
Hoping for what we’ve never known
Believin something we’ve never seen
It’s been a long time coming
but these things happen very slow
But maybe the fruit’s not ripe
though my heart’s aching to go

Until then we’ll be waiting
trying to perfect our smiles
So that the things which are coming
Will stay with us for a while

It’s been a long time coming
And we’re taking a long time to go
Hoping for what we’ve never known
Believin something we’ve never seen
It’s been a long time coming
but these things happen very slow
But maybe the fruit’s not ripe
though my heart’s aching to go

Those things that are coming
Those things that will remain
Like the verse of a poem
Like a song’s refrain
Echo in our hearts loudly
Resound across the valley’s span
Till we hear it once
and ask to hear it once again
