through the wind and the rain
i hear my mother's cry
she says "i know my baby's out there"
just couldn't bear to ask her why
from my womb into the world
lord i wish the child would call
you know i'm needing some company
she makes my life so full"
take my advice
go ahead and live your own life
but everybody's waiting
for someone to come home
like the fire waits for the sand
this world is burning
with the tension of human hands
waiting to be cleansed
waiting for their ace of spades
they say "i sure hope he's coming
'cause i feel like i've just been saved"
take my advice
go ahead and live while you're alive
everybody's waiting
for someone to come home
"come to me and cleanse my soul"
i'm free, i'm free
"only with you am i whole"
can't you see that i am me
"i'll be waiting by the window"
i'll be heading for the door
i was driving down highway 85 yeah
had to pull off the road
just to hear my radio coming in clearer
lord this life's so full i said
why do we ask for more
while we're waiting for the man to come
we forgot what he's coming for
won't take my advice
go ahead and live while you're alive
everybody's waiting
for someone to come home
"i'll be waiting by the window"
everybody's waiting
for someone to come home
"i'll be waiting by the window"
everybody's waiting
for someone to come home
come home
