You Will Wait
words and music © 2020, Kate MacColl
What are you hoping to find? What are you leaving behind?
Impatient, you can’t wait to get on the road but don’t you know life takes its time?
In all the moments between here and there,
You’ll have days to live, you’ll have nights to share
Your dreams won’t come true just because you arrive, but
Maybe you’ll learn as you start to drive
IT’S EASY TO SPEED ON A PRAIRIE HIGHWAY
THEY’RE UNINTERRUPTED AND STRAIGHT
AND BEFORE YOU KNOW IT YOU’RE BEYOND THE LIMIT
YOU MAY GET THERE EARLY BUT THEN, YOU WILL WAIT
Even though our love is strong, it’s clear that you’re already gone
Letting you leave me is my only choice since going with you would be wrong
For it’s you who must follow that highway west
You won’t feel alive unless you pass this test
You’ve imagined for years such adventures ahead so
Please don’t look back, but remember I said
I guess what I’m saying is things that come fast may feel
Good in the moment, but they may not last
I guess what I’m saying is make your life new just make
Sure that you notice what’s happening to you
What’s the rush? What’s your hurry?
Every moment is part of your journey…
