Waiting For A Miracle

A           B                       E     A  E
Working and waiting in the hot sun
A                        B                      E    A  E
With all the rich saints, and the fallen ones
A           F#7                      E      C#m
Working and waiting for the night to come
                      A                     B
And the waiting for a, and the waiting for a
                      E               A  E
And the waiting for a miracle

Somewhere out there is a land that's cool
Where peace and balance are the rule
Working for the future like some kind of mystic jewel

And the waiting for a, and the waiting for a
And the waiting for a miracle

C#m                               B
You wipe the palm of your hand on the grimy pane
In the hopes that you can see  (when you're waiting)
C#m                           B
Stand up tall, pretend you're strong
In the hopes that you can be  (when you're waiting)
C#m                               B
Like the one's that cry, like the ones that die
                  F#m                A    A/G#
Trying to set the angel in us free
        A/F#    A/E   A                      B
And the waiting for a, and the waiting for a
                      E           A  E
And the waiting for a miracle

Scuffle for a nickel, struggle for a dime
Forget about the past, leave your worries behind
Home come the future has to take such a long, long time?

When you're waiting for a, when you're waiting for a
When you're waiting for a miracle			(play chorus 2x)
