CHORDS + LYRICS:
Intro:
Main riff 2 times
Verse 1:
I didn't come h[Em]ere trying to find forg[Am]iveness
I didn't come h[Em]ere looking for a f[Am]ix
I didn't come h[Em]ere in hopes of s[Am]eeing
How the un-fors[Em]aken get their [Am]kicks
Pre-chorus:
[A]It's like a cry for help nobody[G] hears
Cl[A]ose as you can get but I'm s[G]till nowhere near
Chorus:
Now [B]I'm [(D-C#)]just do[B]wn he[(D-E)]re waiting on[B] a[(D-C#)] sign
I'm [B]running [(A-B)]out of t[B]im[(D-C#)]e
I'm h[B]ere [(D-E)]waiting on [B]a si[(D-C#)]gn, look
Verse 2:
Mother's only happy as her saddest child
To learn to live without can take a while
And it's a long way back to anywhere
And it's not too late, oh but it's getting there
Pre-chorus:
It like a cry for help that nobody hears
Close as you can get but I'm still nowhere near
Chorus:
I'm just here waiting on your sign
I'm running out of time
I'm waiting, waiting on a sign
(Solo on instrumental verse / prechorus / chorus)
Verse 3:
So you blow a veil of smoke
To protect yourself from the joke
Look around this room
And say, "Man, I don't belong here"
So many sides to the truth
But only one side to a fact
What will we do
With what we can't take back?
Pre-chorus:
Like a cry, like a cry for help that nobody hears
Close as you can get but I'm still nowhere near
Chorus:
I'm just down here waiting on a sign
I'm running, I'm running out of time
I'm waiting on a sign
Oh, I'm waiting on a sign
I'm just, got me here waiting on a sign
I'm just waiting on a sign
I'm just waiting on a sign
Just waiting on a sign
