(eric carmen)

My old man says success is the measure
Maybe so but I don't need the pressure
Not right now cause I got enough

Teachers tell me I don't lack the brains
Ask if I'm under some kind of strain
Well that's too much and I really can't take it

They all say that I'm not getting younger
And I'd better make up my mind
Man, you'd think I was committin' some kinda crime

'cause I don't know what I want
I don't know what I want
I don't know what I want
But I want it now

When I talk they just don't wanna listen
The they push me to make some decisions
I can't wait and they wonder why

Everyone says I've got no direction
They want me sent to a house of correction
That's too much when I really can't take it

When I try to relieve my frustration
Seems like nothing I can do is right
My mind is aching and I'm sick of being so uptight

'cause I don't know what I want
I don't know what I want
I don't know what I want
But I want it now

All my life they complained that I'm just a dreamer
But I can't make a move when they wound my pride
When they say it must stop they push and pull me
I don't know what to do
And it's like I'm just talking through a cell door
Some one give me a clue

'cause I don't know what I want
I don't know what I want
I don't know what I want
But I want it now
I want it now
Oh, give it to me
Oh, yeah
