Song for Advent #6: Waitin' On A Sunny Day - Bruce Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen wrote The Rising album in response to 9/11. Waitin' On A Sunny Day is a note of longing and optimism in the midst of the bleakness and despair of much of the rest of the album. The song looks back to simpler, happier times and the longing for a reunion with a lover. I saw Springsteen perform this earlier in the year at Wembley when he was joined on stage by a young girl who almost stole the show when she took over the mic for the choruses. The song continues the Advent theme of waiting.
