THE ELUSIVE SONG

Dear radio station that refused to play the elusive song....

I have no idea as to what are your ulterior motives for refusing to play the song that I have been curious to find out about.

However, despite your insistence on being mean to me, I managed to rediscover the song once again... no thanks to you, though!

If I recall correctly, you played the song maybe TWICE (while I was tuned in) I checked your website, your playlist, and everything else that I could think of with futile results.

On the other hand, admittedly, it is rather embarassing on my part that the word
everyone /everybody does not exist in the said song. (I'm still at lost as to how the confusion occured in the first place)

Anyway, I thought that you, being the radio station I tune into most of the time, should know about this.

regards,
Terra

John Mayer - Waiting on the World to change

me and all my friends
we're all misunderstood
they say we stand for nothing
and there's no way we ever could
now we see everything that's going wrong with the world
and those who lead it
we just feel like we don't have the means
to rise above and beat it

so we keep waiting
waiting on the world to change
we keep on waiting
waiting on the world to change

it's hard to beat the system
when we're standing at a distance
so we keep waiting
waiting on the world to change

now if we had the power
to bring our neighbors home from war
they would have never missed a Christmas
no more ribbons on their door
and when you trust your television
what you get is what you got
cause when they own the information,
oh they can bend it all they want

that's why we're waiting
waiting on the world to change
we keep on waiting
waiting on the world to change

it's not that we don't care,
we just know that the fight ain't fair
so we keep on waiting
waiting on the world to change
and we're still waiting

waiting on the world to change
we keep on waiting
waiting on the world to change

one day our generation
is gonna rule the population
so we keep on waiting
waiting on the world to change
we keep on waiting

waiting on the world to change

  4. terra--that song really sticks with me, too. So, do you get all American popular music over there or only select artists?

  5. silversabre: :D will get to it soon. I hope:

    gem: I suppose the song kind of appeals to everyone... :)

    Yeah, American music is very popular here, (one of our music channels showcases the US billboard countdown)of course there will be some really good artistes who don't get the exposure they deserve... but then again, we've got the internet,don't we?

    Only thing that's missing from our local airwaves is good British/UK bands :(

  6. John Mayer! I love his stuff. Fathers and Daughters always makes me a little teary-eyed and makes me need to hold my own daughter, just like The Cat's In The Cradle does for me with my boys.
