lyrics

It’s a long road
You chain your slave to the grind
Push everything aside, a waste of your time
And then you’re all alone
In a shuttered room you try to forget
That you ain’t done nothing
And your chances have all been spent

Can I be your baby can you be my lady
Please don’t tell me maybe
Save me from this bottomless hole
Try to capture all the beauty
Bring the bounty, too.
I truly want it all allow me just a minute or two
To be blessed by you

Let me explain myself
Won’t sell my soul for a dime
Just wanted to see what it was like on the other side
To live in luxury
Absolutely worry-free
Feasting on the fruits of my prosperity

I try to find what’s hiding deep inside this life
That I’ve been riding like a wave
That’s saving all my grace
And making my day to day
Because there will never be another love
That fills me up
It’s like a drug that never lets me down
But time to time I need to find a reason for this sound
When I’m down
