  • I got a street light green
    I got an old mustang
    I got a small town get out anywhere but here dreams
    And an open road
    What am I waiting for

    Well I'm five years in to a two year plan
    Still standing here with the walls closing in
    Behind this open door
    What am I waiting for

    Oh oh what am I waiting for
    I stayed here for love watched it disappear
    Now there's nothin' but yesterdays holding me here
    I can't take no more
    What am I waiting for

    Oh oh what am I waiting for
    Well these blue skies and sunshine and good times
    Are mine for the taking
    I'm always saying I'm crazy for staying
    So what am I waiting for

    I can hear God now
    From a silver cloud
    I got plans for you child
    What you worried about
    You know life's too short
    What are you waiting for

    Oh oh what are you waiting for
    Yeah these blue skies and sunshine and good times
    Are mine for the taking
    I'm always saying I'm crazy for staying

    So what am I waiting for
    Oh oh what are you waiting for
    What am I waiting for Writer/s: HEIDI KAY NEWFIELD, IRA LEE DEAN, JEFFREY STEELE, KEITH BURNS
