From the recording Co-Writers in Disguise
An empowering story of a woman coming of age in Memphis.
WAITING FOR THE LIGHT TO CHANGE
She didn’t have a plan
When she left him back in Cheyenne.
With all he put her through,
She might miss him in a year or two.
Stop. Caution. Go.
She’ standing in the Memphis rain.
Watching the traffic flow.
And waiting for the light, just waiting for the light to change.
When love went bad to worse,
She had a talk with the universe.
Then she took the leap,
That brought her to this corner on Beale Street.
Green. Yellow. Red.
Smiling in the Memphis rain
‘followed her heart instead.
She’s just waiting for the light, waiting for the light to change
She’s declared her independence.
The girl’s gonna seize the day
Gonna lose her blues in Memphis
And the only sign she will obey…(is)…
Walk. Run Fly.
She’s dancing in the Memphis rain.
Soon she’ll reach for the sky.
For now she’s waiting for the light, trying to find the light,
Waiting for the light to change.
