"World Waits" as written by and Jeremy Enigk....
World wait forever never
Take the time
Don't break my heart
Again

World wait forever never
Take the time
Don't break my heart
Again

Though I wanna take the time
By nature of design it's so hard
To arrange
So hard to explain
Mmmm Mmmm
Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm

The way beyond your heartache
No time for our love
Your moment away beyond
Your heartache
No time for our love

World wait forever never
Take the time
Don't break my heart
Again

World wait forever never
Take the time
Don't break my heart
Again

Though I wanna take the time
By nature or design
It's so hard to arrange
So hard to explain
Then running delayed beyond

A way beyond
Your heartache
No time for our love
Your moment a way beyond
Your heartache
No time for our love
No time for our love
No time for our love

    General CommentSuch a beautiful song..

    This song relates to me in a strange way. There is this girl I've liked for maybe 3 years now and to begin with, she absolutely hated me merely because I liked her. Since then, we've reconciled, we've talked a few times, but no relationship thus far. She explains that she doesn't really have time for a relationship at this time in her life, and I understand, but it's this un-explainable feeling that comes with having feelings about her for so long; it's as if I know things will most likely never work out, but I can't let go, though I am holding onto nothing. 'World Waits' has multiple meanings I'm sure. I especially interpret the line "though I want to take the time by nature or design so hard to explain", to me it describes my feelings about wanting to give it time in hopes that something may turn out of it, but there's really not much time to do so, that and I feel I am impatient."No time for our love" is pretty self explanatory, I feel she has no time to even consider these things that I'm feeling.

    damn, I didn't mean to turn it into a therapy session.

    All in all, beautiful song, beautiful lyrics. It is a brilliant masterpiece.

    General CommentI think this song is Jeremy's love song to the world...not just the world in the physical sense, but the world in the spiritual sense. To me, as an individual with a relationship with God, I can relate to his feelings. I want to love the world, I want to show them the way beyond their heartache. But the world doesn't make the time to hear about this love.
