Everyday I wake and wonder
will I know what I have coming
Will the world bring something nice
or would I even recognize it?
Wouldn't be surprised if I could screw it up or
All I know is what I don't
but why can't I sleep in?
Sitting still on dreary concrete
listen to the morning babble
Push the gas and stab the brake and
hear another star go rehab
What I wouldn't give to have a chance to walk away
but I can't.
Gotta trade my life for money and keep on moving
Someday I won't go
All things will follow
Another stack of morning papers
All the headlines say that I won't
make a difference
Everybody's feeling sad and needing something
People on the street are running
gotta get ahead of someone
Must be something more to life than
day by day by day
Day in and day out
everyone wishing for some kind of power to take them away and carry them onward
I'll close my eyes and pray for some other day
You and me, we'll go out to sea and we'll always be on the run
They won't find us we'll both be free from the world and we'll lie in the sun
Just the sand and the sea and there'll be you and me and
there won't be anyone to wake us.
