Well the earth shakes
And I'm lying awake on the other side of the moon
And the earthquakes in Turkey
As far away as I feel from you
And they say that it won't happen here
But when the laser beam breaks through the clouds one year
Will the love be clear on your face?
Tell me baby, how long will you wait?

Well I took this apartment for the view of the water
But instead I watch people walk to their cars
Watch the airplanes take flight in the sky at night
And the satellites look like stars
And nothing real bad happens here
But when the laser beam breaks through the clouds that year
Will forgiveness appear on your face?
Tell me baby, how long will you wait?

And tonight on the news, the weatherman told of a terrible storm
And I wanted to call you and tell you, somehow I thought you should be warned
As though you might let me try to make you feel safe and warm

Cause when something does happen here
Yeah, the river floods over, the warplanes appear
And we go with hardly a trace
Oh baby, is that what it takes?
Tell me baby, how long will you wait?
