Lyrics for Waiting On A War by Foo Fighters:

Verse 1
I've been waiting on a war since I was young
Since I was a little boy with a toy gun
Never really wanted to be number one
Just wanted to love everyone

Chorus
Is there more to this than that?
Is there more to this than that?
Is there more to this than that?
Is there more to this
More to this, more to this than
Just waiting on a war?
Just waiting on a war?

Verse 2
Every day waiting for the sky to fall
Big crash on a world that's so small
Just a boy with nowhere left to go
Fell in love with a voice on the radio

Chorus
Is there more to this than that?
Is there more to this than that?
Is there more to this than that?
Is there more to this
More to this, more to this than
Just waiting on a war?
Just waiting on a war?

Post-Chorus
Just waiting on a war for this and that
There's got to be more to this than that
Just waiting on a war for this and that
There's got to be more to this than that

Bridge
I've been waiting on a war since I was young
Since I was a little boy with a toy gun

Chorus
Is there more to this
More to this, more to this than
Just waiting on a war?
Just waiting on a war?

Post-Chorus
Just waiting on a war for this and that
There's got to be more to this than that
Just waiting on a war for this and that
There's got to be more to this than that
Just waiting on a war for this and that
There's got to be more to this than that
Just waiting on a war for this and that
There's got to be more to this than that

Outro
Because I need more
Yeah, I need more
Just waiting on a war
Just waiting on a war
Yeah, I need more
(For this and that
There's got to be more to this than that
Just waiting on a war)
Yeah, I need more
(For this and that
There's got to be more to this than that
Just waiting on a war)

Song Facts

The third and final preview from Medicine At Midnight, “Waiting on a War” is a multi-faceted song that has a deeply personal meaning for Foo Fighters' leader Dave Grohl. Remembering his own youth, which he “spent under the dark cloud of a hopeless future” due the frightening political tension between the United States and the Soviet Union during the 1980s, and taking the decisive inspiration from a conversation with his daughter Harper, Grohl has crafted a simple, but heartfelt dedication to the youngest generations, who often lose out on the most when the world’s greatest problems steal their youthful innocence.

Musically, “Waiting on a War” starts as a duet between Grohl’s trademark voice and the acoustic guitar, but more and more instruments (including strings, bass and drums) are added to the mix as the song transitions into its second half, where the gradual change of pace leads to an energetic and intense finale.
