(1990)

The song was inspired by events in Europe of the late 1980s, particularly Perestroika in the Soviet Union; Mike Edwards has since noted some of the lyrics were influenced by the band's experiences playing in Romania in February 1990 right after the overthrow of Ceauşescu.

The official video for the song shows the band performing on stage mixed with various images from contemporary political events such as the fall of the Berlin Wall, and brief snippets of news footage of the collapse of the Soviet Union and speeches by American and Soviet leaders.
A woman on the radio talked about revolution
When it's already passed her by
Bob Dylan didn't have this to sing about
You know it feels good to be alive

I was alive and I waited
I was alive and I waited for this

Right here, right now
There's no other place I want to be
Right here, right now
Watching the world wake up from history

I saw the decade end, when it seemed
The world could change at the blink of an eye
And if anything
Then there's your sign of the times

I was alive and I waited
I was alive and I waited for this

Right here, right now

I was alive and I waited, waited
I was alive and I waited for this
Right here, right now
There is no other place I want to be
Right here, right now
Watching the world wake up from history

Right here, right now
There is no other place I want to be
Right here, right now
Watching the world wake up from history

Right here, right now
There is no other place I wanna be
Right here, right now
Watching the world wake up from history
