Wait for It Songtext
von Leslie Odom, Jr.

Wait for It Songtext

Theodosia writes me a letter every day
I'm keeping the bed warm while her husband is away
He's on the British side in Georgia
He's trying to keep the colonies inline
But he can keep all of Georgia
Theodosia, she's mine

Love doesn't discriminate
Between the sinners and the saints
It takes and it takes and it takes
And we keep loving anyway
We laugh and we cry and we break
And we make our mistakes
And if there's a reason I'm by her side
When so many have tried
Then I'm willing to wait for it
I'm willing to wait for it


My grandfather was a fire and brimstone preacher
(Preacher, Preacher, Preacher)
But there are things that the
Homilies and hymns won't teach ya
(Teach ya, Teach ya, Teach ya)
My mother was a genius
(Genius)
My father commanded respect
(Respect, Respect)
When they died they left no instructions
Just a legacy to protect

Death doesn't discriminate
Between the sinners and the saints
It takes and it takes and it takes
And we keep living anyway
We rise and we fall and we break
And we make our mistakes
And if there's a reason I'm still alive
When everyone who loves me has died
I'm willing to wait for it
(Wait for it)
I'm willing to wait for it


(Wait for it, wait for it, wait for it, wait for it)
I am the one thing in life I can control
(Wait for it, wait for it, wait for it, wait for it)
I am inimitable
I am an original
(Wait for it, wait for it, wait for it, wait for it)
I'm not falling behind or running late
(Wait for it, wait for it, wait for it, wait for it)
I'm not standing still
I am lying in wait
(Wait, wait, wait)

Hamilton faces an endless uphill climb
(Climb, climb, climb)
He has something to prove
He has nothing to lose
(Lose, lose, lose, lose)
Hamilton's pace is relentless
He wastes no time
(Time, time, time)
What is it like in his shoes?

Hamilton doesn't hesitate
He exhibits no restraint
He takes and he takes and he takes
And he keeps winning anyway
He changes the game
He plays and he raises the stakes

And if there's a reason
He seems to thrive when so few survive, then Goddamnit
I'm willing to wait for it
(Wait for it)
I'm willing to wait for it

Life doesn't discriminate
Between the sinners and the saints
It takes and it takes and it takes
(And we keep living anyway)
We rise (and we fall)
We fall (and we break)
(And we make our mistakes)
And if there's a reason I'm still alive
When so many have died
Then I'm willin' to—

Wait for it (Wait for it, wait for it)
Wait for it (Wait for it, wait for it
(Wait for it, wait for it, wait for it, wait for it, wait for it)
(Wait)
