lyrics

Work my fingers to the bone all day And what do I have to show?
But a little bit of stuff And another rough night
In a house I do not own

I could just quit and find a little bit of peace in the natural cycle of things
But the ache in my tooth means I'm caught in the loop of fighting for my place

When all I want to do
Is bring it on home to you
And all I want to do
Is be alone with you

When I was young I think I told myself I would never get caught in this track
But then life cut in and I found myself in this marathon running with rats
Well, cat and rat rhyme, but I won't waste your time
With these tiresome metaphors
Cuz to make it last I think I'd need a bit of that education that I can't afford

(When all I want to do...)

So every day I'm gonna find a way
To bring a little bit of passion to bear
Cuz you and me, my friends, you know in the end
We're a lot more than what we wear
Spirit and body we need time to party
And give thanks for what we are
And abundant life is what we're gonna live
If we remember the Sweet with the sour

(And all I want do do...)
