"Waiting" as written by and Billie Joe/wright Iii Armstrong....
I've been waiting a long time
For this moment to come
I'm destined
For anything, at all
Downtown lights will be shining
On me like a new diamond
Ring out under the midnight hour
Oh, no one can touch me now
And I can't turn my back
It's too late ready or not at all

I'm so much closer than
I have ever known
Wake up

Dawning of a new era
Calling, don't let it catch you falling
Ready or not at all
So close enough to taste it
Almost, I can embrace this
Feeling, on the tip of my tongue

I'm so much closer than
I have ever known
Wake up
Better thank your lucky stars

Well, I'm so much closer than
I have ever known
Wake up
Better thank your lucky stars

I've been waiting a lifetime
For this moment to come
I'm destined for anything at all

Dumbstruck
Color me stupid
Good luck
You're gonna need it
Where I'm going if I get there
At all

Wake up
Better thank your lucky stars

    General Commentfor me, it's about this moment, right now, in my life. I graduated from High School two days ago, and I have no idea what awaits me in the future. Even as far as that I am moving from Uptown Manhattan downtown to go to NYU next year, so the downtown lights will be shining on me. I've waited all this time for this moment, right here, and now I just have to wake up.
