"Why Wait?" as written by Jason P. Truby, Noah Bernando Jr., Mark Traa Daniels and Paul J. Sandoval....
Thinkin' that I won't up on dread hahaha, Rasta!

Ooo-ahh Hey, ah-haha Hey
Ooo-ahh Hey, ah-haha Hey

Lift my head up this morning
Before I awake gotta give Jah Jah praises first thing
No other God come before me
So wicked Babylon, me go sing up

Chant dem down babylon
Me go stand up
Hold thy ground against dem wicked plans
Speak up,

Testify against dem Babylon system
Give thanks and praise.

No matter where I go, no matter what they say
Jah Jah gonna be there for me
No matter where I go, no matter where I play
Jah Jah gonna be there for you

For you, For you
Jah Jah gonna be there for you
For you, For you
And Jah Jah gonna be there

So why you wanna wait so long?
Shining so bright, and natty dready don't wait
Why you wanna wait so long?
So long, so long, my little bredren don't wait

Why you wanna wait so long?
For you, For you, my little sistren don't wait
Why you wanna wait so long?

For His Majesty's love
You got to know, ah-haha
For His Majesty's patience and love
Ah-haha, you got to serve the King

What a lovely little feeling
No matter where I go, in the streets them ah show me lovin'
'Cause in the south we are bubblin'
Give me more of that Diego raw sound, sound

It's your boys comin out of Southtown, town
And you know we have to break it on down, down
Testify against dem Babylon system

No matter where I go, no matter what they say
Jah Jah gonna be there for me
No matter where I go, no matter where I play
Jah Jah gonna be there for you

For you, For you
Jah Jah gonna be there for you
For you, For you
And Jah Jah gonna be there

So why you wanna wait so long?
Shining so bright, and natty dready don't wait
Why you wanna wait so long?
So long, so long, my little bredren don't wait

Why you wanna wait so long?
For you, For you, my little sistren don't wait
Why you wanna wait so long?

For His Majesty's love
Open your hearts and let Jah come in
And I will know that he will wipe away our sin

So why you wanna wait so long?
And natty dready don't wait
Why you wanna wait so long?
I pray now, my little bredren don't wait

Why you wanna wait so long?
For you, For you, my little sistren don't wait
Why you wanna wait so long?
I pray now for His Majesty's love.

    General CommentThis song is truly amazing. It literally changed my life by bringing me closer to my God and further from depression. Currently the first song on my worship playlist =)

    As for meaning, I think it's pretty obvious. The sooner you come to know Jah, the better.
